Default gsxr headlight swap into pre

I really don't like the pre cyclops headlight so, i'm going to swap a 98 gsxr headlight into it, i hope . After getting some measurments, i think it can be done. It,s going to be a hand full of welding, cutting and molding, I'm looking forward to see how it works out. If it doesn't look the way i hope, I may use an earlier gsxr headlight. Not a fan of the dual setup on them though. Reminds me of the dual setup in the Harley fairings.

I've seen it done with the older GSR 750 headlights. There is a set forsale in the classifieds. Goodluck with the new set and hope it works for ya.

I'm not to interested in the dual exposed lamp look. besides that it's already been done by someone else. really want my own look. Unless i could retro into the pre housing. that would leave me with the same cyclops look. The 98 gixxer light is more recessed into the fixture and has a clear, cleaner lens. we'll see might go with that seup if it gets too complicated or not cost effective to use the 98 gixxer light. Input is greatly appreciated, gives me things to think about.

mreedohio did the GSXR head light swap. You could probably buy 5 GSXR headlights and screw it up four times before that assembly is cheaper. 5 photo down

Sounds like he wants the dual lights, but recessed with another lense in front of the individual lenses...
