does anyone have any head on or 3/4 angle pics of a 919 or similar with a falcon/demon style headlight or the raptor style fairing. i'm really split between wanting to go with a sportier or streetfighter look vs. the classic look of the stock round headlight.
i love the 919 especially the torque off of the line but i could have done without the round headlight although it is classic. has anyone put a z1000 style headlight on a 919? i've done a search but have come up empty. searches for the raptor of course are related to the raptor bikes.
I considered putting the z1000 headlight on my last 919, but figured it would be cheaper and easier to add the Bates or Dominator dual headlights instead. I still like the look of the z1000 headlight and cowling.
I've never heard of the other ones you mentioned, so I can't help you there.
The Z1000 headlight looks good the lines even follow the 919 line a bit. I would love the headlight on the black bike. If anyone knows where to get one please tell. The red and white one is quite nice but a lil bigger than what I'm looking for. Too bad the 919 was not little more popular state side, it would make getting aftermarket parts easier. Then again I bought it because everyone on the road seems to have a GSXR. My friend with a Busa knew I was looking for a litre bike and couldn't believe I didn't get a GSXR. I like to be different, my previous bike was a Katana the hot "beginner" bike here was the 650 Ninja. The Z1000 was also on my short list but I could not pass on the bang for the buck of the 919.
mmmm our bargain bike sure was priced nicely. Sadly the aftermarket exterior parts are limited...straddled with all the various 'universals'. There are many among us that are the adventurous who crave custom retrofits.
The zed headlight is an expensive combination new (I tried adding it from the online oem parts list, horrible)...only worthwhile getting it used or from wrecked units. It does flow with the 919...not too angular with the tank and tail to complement.
I will be asking on Hornet's Nest UK about the black bike...I want it too! Subtle yet sporty at the same time. I will let you know when I find something.
