"Speed Triple-style" headlight conversion (pics)

Well, my buddy and I went ahead and converted my single headlight over to something I hadn't seen on a 919 yet. I went and found some lights and, with a little ingenuity, we came up with what you see here.

I'm currently running the left light on low and the right on high (yes, they alternate). I'm trying to decide if I want to keep it this way or switch over to both running all the time and no high beams. I have switched the original 55w bulbs for 100w. I figure that if I run them simultaneously I should have no problems seeing at night. I am concerned about draw on the system with the larger bulbs. Any thoughts on that?

On to the pics... (please keep in mind that these are untouched photos. I wanted to hurry and get them online for you guys).

Looks great, do you have any ideas for hiding the wiring that did go in the headlight shell originally?

Working on it. I'm thinking perhaps a panel that can bolt to the bracket or something similar. Part of the harness can be hidden by pulling it under the gas tank like Jay did with his Bates conversion.

Remove your PAIR valve system and use the space in the frame under the tank.
