Just flew home from work so I thought I would fit the bastards (halo lights  ;)) .
Still have to change the exhaust and chain but that's for another day . Fitted LED indicators as well for something to do  ;D
Also have to  get new tyres fitted and that will be it for this bike .
May sell it now it's finished and start a new bike project .
Still can't get over how good the gear display is and wonder how I managed without it .

Looks great! Any particular challenges getting them installed?

Easy .
Just need to remove the headlight assembly (pain in the arse) and then use a hairdryer to warm up the glue and split the black plastic cover from the clear cover of the headlight . Use a couple of medium flat blade screwdrivers to pry it apart after you have warmed up the glue .
Use epoxy to glue the halo lights to the cover (you'll see when you get it apart) and run the cables up through the top .
I soldered them straight to the park light feed so just had to plug them in when I put the lights back .
Very easy to do in fact .
The halo lights are cheap on Fleabay .
You will need a 60mm and 80mm halo .

Yeah, I feel like my GT650 would look pretty rad with these. Sounds easy enough. Was considering moving to LED Headlights too. Not sure yet. I haven't gotten to ride mine at night yet. Surely anything is better than the candle my old bike had.

Go for it  ;)
They are easy and make a big difference .
They also look pretty good .
Do you have a GT or GTR  ?
If you have the latter , you could always add some LED strip lights like I have done .
They are pretty bright .

Aye that Gear Position Display mod is great ain't it.
Its not for always looking at it, but just when you glance at it, its so handy.
I'm also a big fan of the halo's.

1 tip tho, once you've fitted the halo's, polish the hell out of the headlight lens. It makes a world of difference.

I always look at mine when I am not sure if I am in 6th and at lights to make sure it is in neutral although the neutral light works off the new GPS so it's always spot , unlike before when it would tell you were in neutral and wasn't so stall time until you realized you couldn't trust the poxy thing  :o

Mine is a GT. I sounding mind figuring out a good way to set up some side running lights for night riding, since my bike is all black.

Tell me about this gear position mod! I will say, I have yet to go higher than 3rd. My bike will cruise 140km/h without remotely breathing hard. I usually know what gear I'm in, but a quick thing to glance at could be helpful

This is the gear display position mod : I do offer this service for those who don't have the ability or the time to do this.
