You are very welcome. it does look good.

May I suggest these for Headlight bulb, they are very bright and you can see them on 650ib video in one of his build.

I got these from eBay instead of drilling in the dust cap, that way you do not have to worry about the bulb been centered.

there is one thing I ran into, in the round light housing I had to remove the black plastic housing on the bulb wire and connect it directly to the bulb, put an electric tape just in case.

Good luck.

I bought it used with very low miles as the seller went with a different exhaust set up.

unless you have your heart set on the Sprint 08 filter, do a search here first, lots of us had problems with dust/pollen, and have thrown them out.

What do you suggest instead? I have only heard of problems when installed incorrectly. Not fully sealed, edges not fully in place, or locks on bottom of airbox not in place.

I had mine installed correctly, I checked it enough times, yet it still let pollen/dust through. Not an issue if the bike is being raced I guess.

I fitted a K&N instead, as I cant afford to buy a new oem filter every year or so.
