Its cold.. so i just have moment to set up headlight and gauges on bike and check how to instal guages.

I think i can use headlight grip and screw to him guages grip. But before that i need to buy orginal mt-03 turn signal and check how it conected to headlight grip :)

I'll be watching this one....

I seem to remember one of the project threads on here where a metal tab was fitted to the front bolt of the handlebar mounts, and then used to attach the gauges to that.

There are bound to be people on here that have got round this issue though

Keep the piccies coming though!

I was thinking the same thing. Bangup job. I always like white bikes and that headlight really fits well.
