Rather slick looking headlight. Would love to see it on a custom! Our headlight... well... it leaves a bit to be desired, especially on the low beam, eh?

yeah i always felt that the headlight on the custom was a bit boxy and didnt flow well with the rest of the bike. i like the longer look as well as the flames...and the cross looking lamp is slick....just have zero experiance with changing the headlight on a mc. and its is like 2 inches
longer so im not sure about fitting it easily.

If your handy with fabricating simple brackets, this shouldn't be a problem.
This headlight probably mounts with a single 5/16" or 3/8" threaded stud that has a pivot point that bolts to bottom of headlight bracket pictured. This arrangement gives you adjustment left and right or up and down. Kawasaki housing has a 2 bolt bracket that bolts to the triple tree, making the headlight housing stationary.
The other thing to consider is these type of headlights are used on custom bikes that typically minimize the wiring and try to keep wire harnesses small and hidden. There is probably only a small hole in back of headlight to bring in a three wire harness to power headlight. Your Kawasaki headlight has a fairly big opening in the back to bring in a larger wiring harness. So you might have to open up whatever hole they have in the headlight for this harness. Not a big deal, just have to be good with tools and take your time.

I have always done it this way.
1. Pull up to the wall or door and get as close as possible. Now make a mark on the wall at the brightest point of the light on the wall.
2. Then back up 20 feet from the wall to the front of the bike. Obvisously the ground should be level. And you want to back up as square as possible to the wall. Now the brightest point of your light should be about a inch below the mark you made before.
3. If you have the extra driving lights on your bike. They should be done the same. (But in my opinion they should be kept level, keeping the brightest point on the mark. But spread them out a little. Making the right one go about a inch to the right of the mark and the left one go about a inch to the left of the mark. This way they will give you a wider beam. Good for lighting up the ditches and woods, for them damn deer. Shine em while they are in the trees, not in the road.
