It's easy as hell. Just jump right in and do it. it would have only taken me an hour to do it but true blood was on at the same time.

I heard that someone can really screw it up. Do you have a link or something to someone doing it. I don't have any fear of doing it. But I am a visual learner.

Ok I googled it and found a company called blueguages.com. From what I read you send them your gauges and they do the work for you and ship it back. I can't open the page on my iPhone. But when I get home I am going to look more into it.

If u change the color of your fairing I'll punch u in the man parts!!!.. U can only purchase another set and swap out to the other color.. If u ruin those amazing blue fairings u will pay good sir..

And I wanted to change my speedo color but having an orange bike.. And it already having an orange back light.. I don't think it would look good any other color :(..

Word of advise to those who plan on changing the LEDs themselves, make sure you don't get any solder on anything other leads around the lights. I learned that the hard way. Your LCD will read all kinds of crazy stuff so make sure you do a clean job.

time for some retros

well i got bored and figured "i have a dremel, and an ass load of projectors. might as well do some retros"

i wanted to retain the reflector but it doesn't look like it will work with fx35 projectors which is what i'm using. this is a work in progress. hopefully i can finish them tomorrow.

headlights taken apart


WOOPS!!


FXRS on the left, 2009 sti projectors on the right. i stuck with the fxrs because they're bixenon, and well the light output is sexy!


sizing everything up


made a bracket out of abs, i may switch to metal depending on how this holds up




test fit for clearance



thats it for now :O
