Hey, as the title says, I would like to mount a single hid projector on the front of my bike, and worry about a mask/fairing on it later. But the problem is, I have no idea how to seal it up and make sure it doesn't get fucked up by the rain we get here in WA.

The kit i want to use is http://www.theretrofitsource.com/complete-retrofit-kits/motorcycle-stage-3-kit-single-headlight.html

And I was just going to fabricate up some fork mounts for it.

Does anybody have any suggestions? I've been searching this for a few days and have not come up with any results...

Thanks guys for the replies.

Grey, the link is broken, and I'm unsure what type of housing you're using?

I did just do some thinking, and it would it be ideal to just buy a cheap housing projector on ebay, throw out the shitty projectors and fit the ones from retrofit into the case housing?

The main thing I want to do is just mount the projector on the front of my bike, without any other headlamp or such. I just need it weatherproof, and a little resistant to vibrations.

You'll have a hard time mounting the trs one in a stock 7" or the like. You can check how I made my housing. I used the same projector from trs.

They are pretty long projectors with the bulb and everything.

Trs makes quality stuff.

Not cheap but quality.

Hella makes a 60mm projector that I am gonna try to use on a project for 50 new. That is under or around 3.5 inches with the bulb base.

Soreyes - the ones you posted would be a tough fit for the whole projector.

What you can do is get one of those hella projectors. Then buy a hid kit/bulb for that projector/bulb socket - whatever it is.

Generally halogen projectors are going to have a decent cut off - not as good as hid projectors but they would work.
