HEllo ALL

Well I bought me a hyosung gv650 and it took a crap on me, so i was given the opportunity to do a straight trade for a very nice 2005 honda 919. I've had a couple of wheelie accidents which have left some scratches on my exhaust covers and rear cowling. Im an avid rider and love taking my this bike on tours nothing over 1k miles yet :P I have an engine guard, windshield and also a 2in handle bar extension ( which for being 5'8" makes this bike uber cool). atm i've been putting on a fender elim kit and new turn signals.... i had a accident and dropped my headlight assembly (headlight and casing) which managed to crack. I am currently wtb another head light assembly with the bolts.

welcome. look on ebay for you headlight assembly. Saw one on there a couple of times. You might want to consider a 17t front sprockets if you can't keep the front down. are you doing it on purpose and loosing it? or just not paying attention?
