Head light !!!

Can anyone update with any accessories or modification for the head light ???
I don't like the retro look and the head light cover spoils the look ,that's my personal opinion ...
So would like to know if there's option of customizing it

Regards:
Santosh

I suspect if you remove the fairing, which I assume is what you are calling the headlight cover, you could install whatever you want for a headlamp. Aftermarket companies make several styles of headlamps of various shapes and sizes.

You can easily remove the stock fairing and then the decision is yours if you want to ride the bike without fairing or a wind shield or what ever. HD says it is very easy to do

I am big on function so the windscreen is a plus. But if looks is what you favor then leave it off.

guess it comes down to where you are riding too. if you rarely are on the highway at speeds i guess not having the windscreen is not as big of a deal

I have a removable windscreen (windshield) on my Sportster and I agree.

The only time I really need it is for long road trips 'at speed' where I'd be worn out by the force of the wind after 6-10 hours in the saddle. A short trip is no big deal but after several days of riding 'at speed' the wind resistance of your body will slowly wear you out.

Then again maybe I just became a wimp in my old age as I never needed a windscreen when I was young. LOL

Always remember that for every mile of highway there are two miles of ditches.

I put a windshield on my Street Rod. It detracts from the bike's appearance, yes, but the bike would not be comfortable to ride on the highway without it. Speeds above 70 mph become tiring without the windshield, while with it I can clip along at 90-100 mph painlessly (unless a Chippie is hiding on the side of the road). From where I live it is eighty miles of open desert to the next something with stores and street lights, so wind and weather protection is essential.

I plan on pulling the fairing and adding a windshield to mine. But I'll probably get an aftermarket shield. Just looked at the HD shield as mounted on the bike and it is way too big and fugly to boot.
