I've been kicking around ideas in my head about what I want to do with my fighter, some I waffle on and others I know will be part of the finished product. Yeah yeah, I know they're never quite "finished". Something I want to try is a triple stacked headlight, are there any lights out there small enough to facilitate this? It'd be awesome to run 3-5 lights all the way down the front forks to the fender but I'm not even sure that's feasible or safe.

I'm thinking something like this except inverted.

I had the same idea. I was wondering about looking around for one of the new Acura RLX headlights off a crashed car and just ripping the lights out and fabbing something up. Not sure how feasible, cost effective, or how quickly I could find a headlight from a brand new car.

I don't think running multiple lights would be unsafe. Harley baggers run 3 headlights. Some sport bikes run what appears to be 4 when the high beams are on. I'm my experience I would consider just buying a set of bi xenons or possibly projectors from a bike. Ive got a set from a newer R6 if you'd be interested. I got them from drjellyfingers but I havent found a use for them yet and itll be a while before I do. Theyre already taken out and ready for modification.

I agree that projectors are the way to go. Pack a punch in a smaller package. If you have time and skills, check into automobile retrofit projectors. You can pick up 2 pairs for a decent price and with a little know how rig up a bucket and connect right to stock connectors. Try out theretrofitsource.

I appreciate the offer but this project, including gathering parts, won't begin until the new year. I may hit ya up around that time but if you find something better to do with them prior then have at it.

Alright, idiot noob question time. Is there any reason why lights cannot be mounted below that horizontal bar midway down the forks? I’m sure that bar has a name but I don't know what it is. I want to call it a triple tree but I'm pretty sure that's the horizontal bar at the top that connects the handlebars to the forks.
