I keep running into the same wall when I think about putting a dual sport kit on my 650R... the price. I also don't like the fact that most of the kits have all the wiring in the headlight housing. This is cool if you want something that is easy on easy off but it doesn't give you a lot of options if you want to use different types of headlights. I can get OEM Honda parts at cost and I'm starting to wonder if I can get pieces from the 650L like the switches and front blinkers, etc. and get the rest off of ebay. I have the stock wiring harness in tact and I have a rewond stator. Has anyone assembled their own DS kit for the R? Another reason why I don't want to take the plunge on a $500 BD kit is because there's no garuntee that I will get a plate.
