So guys, I am sure a lot of you out there have done many headlight mods. And a lot of ready made stuff is available in market. But many will agree that these mods, if not done properly burn off retinas of poor chaps who happen to be in the way.
So, how to have the perfect light but not be hurled ammi sister comments by everyone on the road?
A) Get a proper and expensive projector light and do some serious stuff with the headlight.
B) Use your grey cells and have a cool looking projector light in less than 2k.
I chose option B.
The following pics describe what I did for my (ultra slow paced mod project) GS150's headlight.
Got my hands on this projector LED. for PKR1300. Wanted a black version but was delivered the silver one.
Since I had trouble getting my hands on a desi GS light in Gujranwala, I bought a AHL 100 desi light for PKR450 and painted the reflector matt black.
As the paint dried, I used a black insulation "solution" tape and covered the bottom 40% of the visor. Note that I covered from the inside to protect the tape from weather. This will act as a Grave's shield that most lights have to chop off upper portion of the light so that oncoming traffic is not blinded.
Ensured there were no air bubbles trapped by pressing firmly. They look bad.
Simply screwed in the projector light.
I accidentally taped the top area in my first attempt. So I had to retape it. The cowl (silver ring) is of the original headlight as the AHL 100 assy and cowl (although of same size) have different positions for screws to connect with each other as compared to GS150's.
The complete look. The black insulation tape blends with the blacked reflector. Some serious ugly thing of you do not paint it.
Will try to get pictures in the night to show the complete affect. As you can see in this, the top part of the light is blocked cleanly. This projector light is really bright, so now I can enjoy my ride in the night and keep oncoming traffic happy at the same time.
Hope you guys like this. It was easy to do it. The whole thing took around an hour. It can be done with any bike.
