Re: 99 650 build. My first.

Info on my headlight. First, the housing and light are 2 separate items. I reused a housing that came with a different cheapo $20 ebay light. Also, I went with the 5.75" vs the stock 7". The factory light brackets work perfect when reversed (swap sides so the bend goes in instead of out). I'm not going to say it's the best option out there, but it's been pretty good so far. The difference between high and low is not as dramatic as I'd like. It is pretty bright though. The beams of light are pretty distinct. Meaning unlike a halogen type bulb that just lights up everything, this light creates a specific shape of light. Basically a horizontal line that get fatter in the middle. I tried several styles and liked this one the best. It is essentially an imitation Harley daymaker. Just an FYI, there are several imitation daymakers of different quality and prices. If searching for one, pay attention to the wiring/ plug and heatsink. I got mine from Amazon. There are options on ebay as well.

Re: 99 650 build. My first.

Small update to my build. As usual, the pics don't do the hi-vis/ flo-yellow justice. So bright and beautiful in person.
