New Bars and Painted Headlight Fixture!

My modification journey is nearly at an end. This morning I finished installing new handlebars, and I spray painted the headlight fixture flat black. The only thing left I have planned is to install the De Pretto Moto Forward Control Kit when it arrives. Can't wait to see what forward controls feel like on this bike.

Bars are TC Bros Tracker 1" Handlebars, did not require new cables, but some rerouting of stock cables was necessary.

Hi! Was it easy to paint the headlight support? How did you do it? Have any pictures?

Good luck on those forward controls! Probably the most annoying thing I've ever had to work on. Lol It's a 100 piece puzzle with vague instructions. If you need help message me!

I hate the silver plastic ring around the headlight. It is the only thing that color on the whole bike. I ordered a headlight grille from Thailand and when (if?) it arrives I'm going to flat black that sucker. It bugs me that it's silver every time I look at it.

The headlight ring is not plastic, it's metal.

Any chance youíre running an ABS model? Iím intending to get the tracker bar, but Iím worried that my brake line wonít be long enough. Been seeing comments that extensions would be needed, but might also be for like 7Ē rise.

Have you put on that forward control kit? Curious to see what they looks like.
