Nice work! My 450 is due for a service soon and I've been putting off a fork oil swap for a little while... it needs to be done!

I've been remiss and haven't pinged you for a ride yet either.

Few parts arrived in the last weeks, today was a new led projector headlight.
I have learnt that the guy before me replaced the head light with a cheap almost one piece setup instead of the lamp unit being sandwiched between the mounting ring and the other ring... weird. So that has to change for the new LED unit to fit.

The headlight on the GS right now does not look like this:



Demo fitting to see it on the bike, is much whiter in person.

Also replaced the front (for now) indicators with some slightly more modern and DOT approved lamps off I think a cbr125 or something... hunting down the same for the rear now =)

Ok, thanks to partzilla, I have found that after 1996 the GS500ET was the last to have the multi ring style headlight housing. Ordering parts as needed now =)

Well headlight is done thanks to a sneaky swap of headlight inner parts with my cousins aftermarket XJ650 unit.







Now to apply some reflective rim tape and see if I like it.... uncertain yet

Nice work!

That rim tape works well... it's the only bit of colour so it stands out without being over the top  :thumb:

Output is amazing, cutoff is bang on the money and the spread is that much better for seeing shaZam! that might try to cross my path... that and high beam hits signs half a kilometre up the road now!
