OK CF world i'm a uber-NOOOOB so bare with me I am street fighting my 2006 gsxr 750... I would like to start off doing it as cheaply as possible just to make it steet legal for the rest of riding season. so now that i've stripped all of the fairings off I need to get a headlight on it, some mirrors, a windscreen, and som new levers on it for under a few hundred dollars and it still pass with MD and DOT approval. in the future I want to replace the gauge cluster, shorten the rear and put new tail lights on it stretch it a little and pretty much trick it the F out any help will be much appreciated also I see these bikes with these sick tank graphics is it cheaper/easier to get it painted or do custom vinyl.

A little bit of inspiration.

Bar end mirrors:

How I made some quick headlight brackets:

Patience, some tools, some material and two pairs of T-bolt clamps.

Delkevic headlight:

Not as good as a stock SV650, but decent 7" round headlight running an H4 bulb.

If you want a cheap headlight to start, find a 7" headlight, make some brackets. Buy some bar end mirrors and go. Don't worry about the windscreen until you are dead set on the headlight.

Also, if you look at a headlight, make sure it's DOT approved.

In my opinion, if you're not selling your GSXR headlight, make a bracket for that and run it. Then you don't have to worry about changing wiring.

No, no, no... that is a bike I saved the picture of due to the use of the SVn front headlight. Sorry, but it aint my bike. (Would love for it to be.)

Do a search on headlight brackets. There are some pretty sweet ways guys/gals have rigged up the headlights. I'm always amazed at what everyone does here.
