I must have been good this year because my wife let me pick out my own Christmas gifts. I was able to find a few steals on ebay so I was able to add an LED headlight, Big Mouth Exhaust Tips and Polk DB 521 speakers. I love all three upgrades. The LED headlight is awesome. I pulled up to my Brother in Laws house and the first thing out of his mouth was boy that headlight is bright, It was daytime. The speakers made a big difference form stock but getting them out of the front fairing was a pain in the ass, now when I get some cash I want to add an amp. I like the exhaust tips also as they are cut on the same angle as the bags. I wish I had the extra cash to buy the Witchdoctors modified exhaust when they had it on sale over Christmas but sometimes budget has to take priority over a great sale. I don't know if I should thank you guys for a great forum and giving me ideas or cry because my list of wants is getting larger every day. :devil

Looking good man. Which headlight is that? I've been leery of the ebay and Amazon stuff because of a comparison thread by Paul Parmelau (spelling?) where he measured with a light meter and found some lacking in brightness or focus. I added a couple stupidly cheap LED running lights under my forged highway bars and they are also crazy bright, making my OEM headlight look dim and yellow by comparison. So I know the LED stuff packs a whallop. As for radio - yes add an amp, you'll have more than enough volume. Bottom pic is the relatively inexpensive Kenwood unit I installed recently and WOW did it ever wake up my upgraded ALpine speakers. Neither the radio or lighting projects were expensive, especially compared to what I read some people had spent, but I feel like both added lots of functionality and enjoyment to my bike.

I have a funny request, but have any pics of the forged bars, with-out the lights on? I am curious to see the view of the front to see how they look.

Thanks and thanks for the update on the upgrades!!

No I don't have any pics except the one I showed. I'll try to get some next time I am at the garage where it's stored.

Its the OEM LED headlight in Black. Stay tuned this light may be for sale soon. It has some scratches when I got it and the company I bought it from is going to send me a new one. Once I get the new one I am going to try to buff out the scratches and if it comes out good I may sell it. With today's news I may just keep it as an extra also as these things could get hard to get. Thanks for the amp suggestions.

Long delay but I finally got some daytime pictures of the running lights mounted underneath my forged bars. They don't get hot and they don't vibrate while riding. I really like these lights, especially considering how cheap they were from Amazon.
