Front End Overhaul

Finally got to overhaul my front end after months of moving and set up my new garage. Painted the bucket, tinted the headlight, installed fork covers and fork boots, bar end mirrors, wind screen, slip on exhaust, and phone mount.

Still looking forward to doing something with the brick, but a little undecided on removing the fender or just replacing with bullet signals and a round light.

Thanks, I'll be curious to see how yours looks. I initially used 2 layers, but backed off to one because it seemed like plenty to me.

To get the fork boots on did you have to disassemble the forks?

I love the look of these, but don't like the idea of having to take my forks apart.

I just cut them along the parting line and then glued them back together once installed on the bike. It was easier for me than breaking down the front end to slide them on.

Thanks for the heads up and not sure why they don't work, but if you just google the description with amazon, they're all the first hit I believe. For some reason they worked on facebook and other threads, but not here. It won't let me go back and edit the first post now, but if there are any you're curious about, I'll send you a confirmation of the link you're looking for.
