Re: Headlight Protector

You can use double sided, heavy duty, clear Velcro on the face of the headlight lens.

Re: Headlight Protector

Update:

Open the package..and...well solid thick glass...yes thick glass and weighing a lot.
I suspect that they have made it as if i should change the hole front glass if it gets broken like a spare part. Dont now if you can do this at all.

Anyone ????

Tips and advice...otherwise i can have it as a taco tray on saturday

Re: Headlight Protector

Ohh... I was looking at this one before.

It looks like it just clips on over the entire front of the headlight unit.

Much cleaner look than having velcro tabs stuck on...

Re: Headlight Protector

Look today and well they made it as the original front glass all in all... well what a waste if you cant take hole lighthouse into separate parts easily. so now i have a new BMW taco trey on the dinnertable.

Next Project is on and ordered yesterday.

Re: Headlight Protector

I cut my own to fit my K1200R. Trimmed some offcuts and polished the edges...it's not commercial quality, but it's not too bad and will do the job for longer country rides.
I haven't fitted it yet, because I've misplaced the 3M dual lock.

Re: Headlight Protector

I don't understand... you bought it from someone for the sole purpose of protecting your headlight... You didn't ask them how it attaches? They didn't furnisy the proper hardware to attach it? Am I missing something here?

Re: Headlight Protector

Just buy a sheet of 3M 2mm clear which is sticky on one side. Cut a template of the lens from paper and mark and cut the 3M. Once its on its damn near invisible.
