Which HID kit and headlight housing is this? I just install the Rigid LED fogs on mine and want to convert the headlight to HID. Looks great!

Installed my Zumo with touratech locking mount!

I see the gromets and screws that hold the windscreen on is still a pain in the butt, lining those up and finishing that last part almost took as long as the rest of the job

Fitted BajaDesigns Squadron LED's

Well today I decided to fit the BajaDesigns Squadron LED's. on my 990R

Gotta say superb quality you get exactly what you pay for.

Only downside is the fitting instructions are backwards! They tell you to mount the LED's on brackets supplied to the fairing bolts then you find you've gotta take them off to remove the fairing! First thing you must do is bin the instructions.

The power wires could do with both being 2 inches longer but I managed.

The result:

Makes maintenance so much easier, and more time for drinking beer. Check this link:
