After I balanced my front wheel/tire, I can see pretty good with the Acerbis fold-down mirror...it made a huge difference in vibration level.
I used two (one on each side) round mirrors on steel shanks. I tried the plastic fold-away type but they viberated too much. I like to see behind me when I'm on the street

Jet pilot mentioned doing an install on the stock headlight shroud with turn signals mounted to the shroud...Dale did exactly that for me and I really like how it turned out. I recommend this setup, it is compact and you get the good stock light. My stock shroud install came out very clean and Dale even set it up so I can remove the turn signals in a heartbeat.
My brother has a TDS kit that came with the normal UFO headlight and it is okay but not super bright. We almost never find ourselves riding at night. If you need to ride at night Dale will set you up with a light for your needs. The good thing about the UFO light that comes with the kit is a great turn signal setup...check out his site the pics say it all.
I have had a Baja Designs kit on my XR400 for 8 years and it worked; The TDS is just smaller, neater, cleaner with features you can't find elsewhere.
Dale's kit has lots of features that rock...voltage indicator, auxiliary power/charging port, built in auto resetting circuit breakers and three way light mode (running lights, full lights and stealth/charge mode).
These features make it really worth the buck IMHO.

Also, how much did it cost to have it done that way (if you don't mind me asking)...using the stock headlight?

Had problems with the Baja kit harness. The phone support was good, but noticed that the harness was kinda cheap and bulky. Hard to work on too.
Then I got the WR and had Dale put his TDS kit on. It is a very well thought out design, and the harness is very trick and reliable. Very happy with it.
These bikes take alot of abuse and the TDS kit can take it.
