Buell parts source?

Been thinking of doing the Buell Lightning dual headlight mod to my niner but coming up a little short on places to get the parts I need. I could go to the local dealers but was hoping someone here has a hookup. Thanks.

You have part #s, I like that setup as well, buddy at work has the buell xb12, dual headlight with the grill, looks pretty cool.I have a buddy who works at Harley shop, not sure how much of the original headlight we really need tho(mounting brackets and hardware).str8

Here's the inspiration. No, I don't have part numbers. I was hoping someone had access to a microfiche system or something so we can look at it and decide what is needed.

pretty sure what you need is the buell xb12s or xb9s headlight, flyscreen, and headlight bracket, along with some spacers from a hardware store. Harley/Buell dealers don't seem to post their microfiches online, so the easiest way would be to call or visit a dealership. You could also try searching the svrider forum, alot of the sv guys do this conversion and have posted how-tos.

It's California, all those extra taxes they pay affords them the opportunity to drive on freshly waxed roads all the time. You should see the forearms on the DOT guys.

Wax on... Wax off...

OK guys, went to the Buell dealer and the guy there printed me off these copys. Didn't bother with prices 'cause I don't know what all I need yet. Has part numbers so getting prices should be easy.
