Something look wrong with the headlights on this Gran Canyon?







Are they supposed to be flush with the fairing? These look recessed...

this one is for sale in FLA at a dealer.

Maybe it was in a wreck, look very closely at the plastics/frame for skids and cracks. By the looks of the web images it does look flush...

The headlight assembly attaches to the frame through a support that has been known to stress crack. check it. Fairing/gas tanks "grow" on these bikes when used with our gas with ethnyol in it, The tanks will grow making the headlights look recessed...
In a perfect world......
Looks pretty normal to me, and I ride one.

Thats what I was going to say the tanks grow and shift and never go back together as designed,

It is what it is...buy it and never look back!!
