Well, my Vee fell over in a heavy wind and cracked the fairing pretty bad. I personally always wanted to remove that plastic anyhow, and figured there was no time like the present. However, my initial desire of mounting a 8" racelight proved to be a little to costly at the present time so I thought I might as well experiment with what I had. I cut down the headlight mounting frame and moved it closer to the bars and further up. The result is interesting to say the least. It should do until I can afford that trailtech light.
