Airhead headlight protectors r65-r100(DIY)
I came accross a nice little setup and I thought I'd share. This was done on an r80st but the headlight is similar accross a range of airheads. r65-r100 I believe)
I found some crome mesh headlight covers from classic Jaguars that just so happen to fit perfectly on my airhead with the right modification.
You can pick up the gaurds here:
You'll get an extra set for replacement or for a friend. This is a really slick set up that allows easy removal. Plus it looks cool.
-Take the mounting brakets that come with the mesh cover and a pair of needlenose pliers and add an extra bend to clip into the inside of chrome headlight lense.
-Flatten the bottom part of the bracket with the hole.
-The leftover (from the clip, to the bottom with the hole should be the same length as the inside of the headlight rim.)
-Use 3 or 4 clips. I liked the look with 3. In addition add a bit of electrical tape or liquid gasket if your worried about vibrations on your chrome headlight rim. I found that, in hindsight, I didn't need it as the set up fits tight enough that there is little vibration against the chrome while running.
Presto, one headlight cover. And an extra for a friend. Not a bad price either if you can get the friend to buy it from you.
I have an extra setup if anyone is interested (Already modified). Just make an offer and I'll send it out. (PM me)
