Want to take the fairings off my '99 SVS and throw on some smaller headlights? I have a GSXR 1000 front end.

Here's the front end with no headlights:


what are my options? I want something that throws out some real light, isn't too bulky, isn't made of fake CF, and looks really cool. bucket or twin headlights are both OK.

Here's a bit of what I've found so far..
links and prices and pics are appreciated..
thanks.

pf-s at streetfighters USA


donniej's Acerbis Blitz Carbon Fiber look headlight from Rumble Imports


athflying79's headlights from from Buster's in the UK


RobDog's Buel? headlight assembly


Twin headlight "dominator" set from www.streetfighterdirect.com


orangegilly's EBAY bought kit:


What else is there?? what's the latest and greatest for under $150??

Why pay so much $$$ for UK product when do what I did.
http://store.wpsracing.com/cuchheas.html I went with holigens.The quality is superb and the price sweet.I did tons of research on this.The look I wanted was speed triple.I made costum brackets from 1/2 aluminium.I am yet to install since just got my sonic springs waiting for seals to do everything togheter.I recommend doing the fork mod too since you'll need to get rid of all the brackets with stock headlight.

I saw a really nice Hornet (599) that had a recent GSXR headlight fitted, no fairing, just the headlight... You'd think it was an off the shelf headlight, l;ooked fantastic.

you mean something like this:


that would look awesome. the bracket might be challenging though.

That's it exactly....

Just thought of another option, the headlight off a Gilera DNA scooter... http://www.bikepics.com/pictures/102892/

There's another classic fighter option that you don't see much anymore since all the twin headlight and mini fairing kits came along... Just random mini foglights, and lots of 'em... Traditionally 6 or 8. Definately a matter of taste though.

The bracket would actually be easy since it is all ABS plastic.

I may try to lick one up for a closer look.

Don't hae any pics... There was a featured bike in Streetfighters last month using this trick- 6 small self-contained 55W foglights, 2 wired for dip, 4 for fullbeam.2 looked to be bolted directly to the bottom yoke, 2 to the top yoke, and the other 2 mounted inbetween on a seperate bracket. I'll try and get you a pic... Looks good on a proper old-=fashioned streetfighter, 7/11 or similiar.

I think Lockhart Phillips makes some kind of headlight bracket that will fit multiple fork widths...
