    Confession

    After years of bashing and treating round-headlight zrx's like second class junk, I now have one on my bike...and I love it.

    :superdupergay:

    I got a train light off Ignatz last week for a project bike but after staring at it for a couple nights I couldn't resist mounting it up to see how clean the air was.

    Well folks, it's pretty f'n clean.

    I don't mind round headlights on the ZRX, but they need a small, low profile fly screen for it to really turn my crank.

    I kinda dislike seeing these train light conversions... because I want to do that too. But I also like the classic bikini faired look as well.

    That looks great, nice job.

    IMO, the blues are rare enough to be unique as they are. Now any other color and I'd been all over it.

    I did this to the bike that was totaled a few times and it had the smoothest airstream of any I've ridden.

    Back then, I was quite proud of that bike, looking now, it's kinda fugly.

    Oh, I'm putting the fairing back on, but I might roll like this for another couple weeks. The whole front end is coming off for a swap sooner or later

    Love them trainlights!

    I'd probably still have mine but the cb599 light nick gave me was too irresistible to not install.

    I ran one for a few months, it really is nice to have clean air and see the front tire so well.
    I'm stock now and will change back and forth from time to time.

    It's a 8" train light.

    Isaac what bulb are you running in it? I run the 80w/100w from Napa and if you aim it right you have no problem with traffic. Awesome on the back roads at night.

    I think the argument is that the Wagner/napa bulb is more durable. Lasts longer, doesn't get shaken baby syndrome
