Making my own headlight guard
My trusty Ventura guard, that lasted over 80,000 miles and one serious crash, has gone missing. I noticed it when I got the bike back after prepping it for a X country trip in two weeks. My mech doesn't know anything about it so it was probably stolen.
I'm too cheap to spend $50-65 on a new one and I love a chance to make a farkle. I stopped at a local plastic supplier and purchased a 18x24" 1/8" piece of optical polycarbonate for $2.
The tech told me to put it in the oven at 180 degrees to soften it so I could shape the curves. I'm thinking of doing two separate sides instead of the one piece that Ventura does. I have industrial Velcro to hold it on.
I'll let you know how it turns out. I made one for my R1200GS that looks professionally done but that didn't require molding it.
