    Headlight Retrofit - Anything out there?

    I'm in the process of deciding on a bike to replace the 06 R1 and I'm bouncing between the XSR900 and the FZ-09.
    I like the added ABS, TC and Slipper Clutch on the XSR and being a street/daily rider I will gladly take the extra bits on the bike. I know the MT-09 recently had these additions in Europe and my hopes was for them to be offered here as well for the 2017 model year but nothing yet.
    So that has me considering the XSR more seriously but I'm not the biggest fan of the look. Has anyone swapped out headlight assemblies or anything yet?



    Was thinking something like this would look great. I feel it changes the whole bike just swapping the light. I grealy prefer the FZ-09 in the looks department but I want something that will ride how I want.

    That looks like the LSL Universal Urban Headlight Kit, which is what they use on the 2013 Yamaha UK MT-03.

    I have a MT-03 Headlight from one of my old streetfighter bikes. I am debating on putting it on my XSR. I need some fork clamps to complete the job.
    Here is the light next to my Duke. Was kicking the idea of putting it on the Duke, but sold it to put a down payment on the XSR 900.

    I agree on waiting and see if the 2017 FZ/MT-09 will have ABS/TC/Slipper Clutch before you make up your mind.

    +1 here... I really don't understand why they haven't already brought in an FZ09 with all that stuff. Are they afraid the FZ guys are going to balk at the price increase? Are they right?

    G-Primo, you have done nice customization on your bike, but please stop while you are ahead.
    Remember, the sum of the parts make the whole, but if some parts are tacky the whole will look ridiculous.
    This transformer like headlight, for heaven sakes, resist the urge.
    Might as well have gotten a FZ or a V8.
    LOL
