Decided to shed a little S-weight. Started with the rear end. Put on the Acerbis enduro taillight: (Why do we blank out the license plate number? I only did because everyone else does.) Attached the taillight assembly to a spare hole in the sub-frame and just wired my plate to the plastic. The whole thing is very secure just like that. OK. Now for the headlight. Took it off a week ago. Took the speedo off the other day. (Rode twice with an empty headlight shroud.) And today I put it back on. But without the brackets, housing or mounting ring. First I used silicon adhesive to glue the headlight directly into the shroud (did this last night). Then I used strap hangers to fasten the shroud to the bike's frame. Losing the speedo freed up a couple of bolts. Had to trim the straps down a couple of times to find out just how short they should be. It's not the prettiest mod I've made, but it seems to work. This is what I shed: And this is how it looks: Rode it around on the street this evening. At first the headlight was pointing a little too far down, and needed an upward vertical adjustment. I had a longer 5 mm. dia. bolt on hand just for this, and used nylon spacers to "adjust" the bottom of the shroud out from the frame to raise the beam. Now it's perfect. Horizontally, the beam was fine. I had "precision adjusted" it earlier by taking pliers and pulling and twisting the straps until the shroud was centered on the bike. We'll see how the adhesive holds up. I used gobs and gobs of it. (Boy does it stink!) Even if the headlight comes unglued, there's not enough space for it to fall out of the shroud. Losing the stock taillight, headlight brackets, and speedo/speedo brackets, the bike is now noticeably less top heavy. It doesn't have that "if you don't hold onto me real good I'm gonna fall over" feeling anymore. I can lean the bike over a lot further and catch it between my legs. Before, I couldn't. Funny what a big difference a couple of pounds high up on the bike can make in how "heavy" it feels. I think I'm ready to move on to engine design.
