Headlights

So what headlights do you guys run on your fighter cat? I've been looking at a ton on ebay, I don't find the small ones that look kind of dingy attractive. So what do you guys have?

I had a lot of trouble finding something that I liked as well. So I found a car with projectors in it that I liked and took the projector assembly out of the housing and built my own housing on the front of the bike. Mine came out of a lexus with turning headlights. You could do somewhat the same if you want projectors you don't even have to make a housing you could even just mount up the projector assembly to the front, Ive seen some do that as well...
here is what I did

Foglight. Less than $25 from auto parts store. Keeps you legal(ish) and visible during the day. Works great at night when the road your on has street lights.

I've got a single dominator headlight that I mounted for a couple of days that I would love to part with for a buck or two if you want to try to make it work.

So I got a 7" chrome headlight, and some cool brackets that go on the forks. Pretty excited, I still need to find out which TrailTech Vapor computer kit I need to get. How would the tach work with the bike btw?

My tach I wired directly to the coil for a little better reading, but I did try it with the wire wrapped around the spark plug wire and it works very well too. The easiest way to do it is call trail tech and tell them what bike you have and what you want and they will hook you right up. It took me like 10 mins to order, also make sure you measure the inside diameter of the radiator hose before you call.

So for measuring the inside I'll have to drain it and use a measuring tape? Because I did call them, and I have no clue what size my radiator hose is.

I always enjoyed the option of spending 30 bucks on a pair of foglights from advance and wiring em up for low and high beam. Being cheap, it gave me the option to change whenever I wanted. Honestly, I ended up going with a single 4 inch round from O'Reillys for twenty.
