Mounted an 07 light to my 06

22 posts in this topic

With just a little work I mounted an 07 headlight to my 06. It bolts on to the upper clamp no problem. But I had to make some tabs for the lower mount, I did this by drilling two holes in the factory mount, installed two screws secrued with nuts on the other side, then slide some vaccum line over them to make a nice smooth and tight fit. Here are some pics...

The stock lower mount drilled and screws added

The underside showing the screws I used to mount as flush as plate as I could get.

And this is why it had to be done...

The 07 has a different plug then the 07, I simply cut the plug off and soldered up some blade style connectors to make the connection with the H4 plug I have on the 06.

I mainly did this simply because I like the look of the 07 light, I know I know, it's just a dirt bike lol. But I'm pleased with how it turned out.

I agree the 07' headlight makes the 06' look way more modern.

Good Job, excellent photos and post:thumbsup:

Very nice work. I took my light off a long time ago and eBayed it, but if I ever decide to go back, I'll use yours as an example :crazy:...SC

Thanks

The rear fender is from an 05 YZF (last year with the steel frame before they went to aluminum), direct bolt on.

Price wise, I am at 150 bucks for the 07 light. That includes the light assembly and bulb, the plastic housing, white decal, and harware.

so I had some idiot on a honda smash into me on the trail at the end of last year. broke my 06 head light and buggered up the shroud. so one of my winter projects was to replace all this. so i see this thread and thought what the hell. took your ideas and this is how it turned out.

Great info, I just ordered an 07 light for my 06 bike too, do you have a pic of the connector on the 07 light? and what kind of bulb does it take? And is it dual beam? I know it's lower wattage then mine but i need high/low for street legal. Also did you have to cut off the lower tab that the 06 shroud scrweed into? or did it stick out? just curious as it would be easy to switch back in case of a broken light or something temporarily?
