    My Naked Conversion - custom LED headlight

    I always wanted a naked bike.
    Back in high school, the first bike that ever got me interested in motorcycles was the Ducati Monster.
    It was the perfect balance of aggressive, raw, and modern with just a bit of retro-cool thrown in.

    I bought my FZ6 back in April and have loved it from the second I saw the bike in person.
    The one thing that bothered me though, was that huge front fairing.

    I knew it had potential as a naked bike and I knew there were kits to convert it but those never really did it for me.

    Here's my bike the day I bought it 600 miles on the clock. (actually.. this was taken in the previous owner's garage )






    8 months, 2 accidents, 5000 miles, and hundreds of dollars worth of parts later here it is.



    I was going for that cool retro-modern aesthetic with the round headlight.
    It's actually an aftermarket Jeep Wrangler light. All cree LEDs and DOT and ECE approved.

    Riding in ~40 degree temps isn't the most comfortable on a naked bike, but damn is it fun.



    Here are some pics of the spread about 15 feet from my garage door. This thing is BRIGHT.

    And yes, I don't have my speedo mounted yet..
    I've been using a speedometer app on my iPhone which is mounted to my handlebars
    A speedo bracket is next thing on my list

    Any questions, comments, suggestions, drop em here!

    Looks great. Black out the forks and it would look even better.

    Can you do a shot of it down the street to show the throw?

    Links are working for me.

    Looks good on the bike. Light has some hot spots though in the center. How is it riding at night? Better than stock? Got a link to the headlight?

    Did you buy the light online? I'm thinking about going naked this winter, and was seeing if you had a link to that light! I like it!

    How did you wire the headlight to the stock?

    If you have the bd43 mod it's plug and play (if his light is the same plug as mine). That looks awesome! Was going to post my most recent iteration but you beat me to it. Mine is similar but I hacked up old bits instead of buying good looking parts for their intended purposes. The cut off looks great! I've noticed that when leaned over at night it gets a bit hairy on country sweepers.
