Default Yamaha Warrior with touch O' Victory

As some of you know, I've been working on integrating a Victory headlight onto my 2007 Yamaha Warrior. I called it the Yamahammer.

I finished up my V2.0 tach housing today. I say V2.0 because the first one I didn't care much for. The second one is cool for now, but I have an idea to integrate the tach into the top housing over the winter. I don't want to wait though....I wanna ride now!!

This was my first hack at fabrication and body work. I used my ATV rack to bend the steel, and used my angle grinder, pneumatic air sander, and my old Hobart MIG welder. oh yeah, and a Dremel. Used bondo for the first time and realized just how fast that stuff sets up. Funny, Chip Foose makes it look so easy....that rascal.

Found that the hammered paint can not only conceal a myriad of minor imperfections in the raw finish, but also look pretty darn nice on a bike like this. Who knew? Overall, I'm happy with this temporary setup. It'll get me through summer.





Here's a video of it using the keyfob to turn the ignition on and also start it:

Looks good! I always liked those bikes, and it looks even better with that headlight, like it was meant to be there. I think the tach looks spot on also.

Thanks zooop1! I think the light from the Victory is killer! I bought a pair of HID's from CR at VictoryHID.com and they make it even better! I can see for days now! I like how the light flows with the lines on the bike....it all just flows so well. thanks again!

Looks great. I like this Warriors! That's the bike that got me thinking about cruisers over sport bikes. I had looked for a Warrior a few times, then I saw the Highball and Victory won.

Thanks fellas! I live 1.5 miles from Victory's R+D facility in Wyoming, MN so I see Vics all day long....and love it. I just couldn't afford the Victory I wanted but found this. They are all good looking bikes to me. Love the flowing lines.

Looking good. How about a pic of two with the headlight turned on?

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Looks great!! I might have to try this on my Warrior. Was there any trouble stuffing all of the wiring inside the Victory bucket?
