Acerbis Cyclops...

How would this look on a Yellow Suzuki SV650K5 instead of the round OEM headlight? anybody has any insights on the installation woes.

Who cares, is the "Bling Factor" what matters... right?

I am not much for riding at night anyways so, I'll see what happens... I just despise the Big A$$ Round headlights.

P.S.: As per their Specs:

Spotlight uses 55w Halogen bulb; floodlight uses 55w halogen and 5w incandescent bulbs. DOT & SAE approved... I don't see anything wrong with that!

plus, you could do what I did with my oversized dual headlights... toss in a couple of higher wattage bulbs. That'll help a bit.

I found this wiring diagram. http://www.sv650.org/sv_manuals.htm it is for the uk model but my guess is it should be the same as yours.

Thanks MisterMike, I was more looking for instructions on how to mount the Cyclops... do I use the oem brackets, aftermarket brackets (and if so, what brand)

The turn signals won't be that much of a deal since I can always play with a few models and see which one I want to go with.

Are these bikes capable of riding 2 up? wifey wants to go for a ride... crap, and I was already thinking on putting a High Mount exhaust and get rid of the footpegs. Now, I am going to have to use one of those under the pegs exhausts and I am not to keen on doing that.

async... erm, your son is well... cute, yeah!

All these questions have been answered many times. It's a wonderful forum I might add.

I can't go to that forum as Kevin would ban me inmediately for cheating on WT

Honestly, this is the only online community I am a member off... kinda the same thing when I was at MR. Sure, I read speedzilla from time to time but only one I am bored or there;s nothing going on here (and the fights are better over there )

I'll take a look at it... Thanks

You don't have to join, just use the search function to get the info you need then come back here and share it.

It's a very different crowd, much younger. Lots of old people here

Shouldnt have any probs riding some 2 up on the SV-Not long distance 2 up touring but My Cousin had one and he and his SO did some 2up cruising quite often, under maybe 100 miles at a time.
