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.

Instructions:

-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)

it looks like you're trying to keep someone from breaking into your headlight!
