Nice find Transient. A couple of those are pretty cool looking!
Roy, do you have any info on obtaining a Euro FZ1 headlight? The Euro FZ1 and the Shiver headlight are the two that have had me brainstorming about a way to use them with a mini cowl/windscreen on the 919.
I wish I knew how to work with plastics or fiberglass, I have a basic shape in mind...
This is what I got so far on the Euro FZ1 Headlight conversion. . .
A kit is available through Burlington Yamaha. They put this kit together piece by piece using all OEM Yamaha parts for a direct conversion to the US FZ1. The parts guy, Steven, said he could eliminate parts for a conversion onto another bike. Parts that I would immediately foresee eliminating is the gauge cover, since you wouldn't be using the FZ1 dash. If I personally went this route, I'd also eliminate the OEM headlight side covers in favor of carbon fiber side cover bling I found on Ebay.
Here's the Euro FZ1 info:
After Transient's find, I'm really thinking about a K6 conversion. The headlight is small and the fairing flows with the 919's lines rather nicely. Heck, even the sample on their online catalog is almost an Asphalt Grey in color.
In both cases, a new dash has to be considered as part of the conversion. The Koso GP STYLE SPEEDOMETER RX-1N is a nice dash. But, it has a fuel gauge set up not a low fuel warning light. After a call to Koso, the fuel gauge is the only option, which would only work if a float sending unit can be devised in the 919's tank. A stumbling block. May be the shift light can be converted to a low fuel warning light as an option.
And in both cases, a headlight and gauge mount has to fabricated.
More later as I think about this conversion subject. . .
