Someone going for the DIY double Baja light look?! Real overkill IMHO unless you are actually racing at night but maybe with regular headlight globes could be fun but more to break  ::). A genuine Baja Design La Paz 8" double will cost you $1000 in HID ... I have a single on my HP2 (scored it a few years back in USA and did the HID myself) and is awesome  :o




Mine cost me R720, had the Hella lights for a while now and made the rest myself from bits I had around. Ag just keeping myself busy, planning to go Alan's route with the alu setup but saw that one round light without a surround would look silly. Decided to give this a go. Setup for the open dirt road for sure. Will run one for dims and the other for brights.

Rough idea. The whole setup weighs 2.5kg, yes you can feel it on the bars  :P

What brackets did you use in the end?

Must admit I'm a minimalist type of person so those big lights look a bit overkill for me, but you wont have trouble seeing at night, that's for sure  :thumleft:

Yip the weight was too much so I took them off again, made my own bracket.

Ja but useful in the snow and ice - we have no idea how guys go trail riding in winter there! They fit studded 'screw' tires and go for it properly in proper snow and ice.  :ricky:

So you didnt use either of the brackets I sent through?

Would like to see what you did in the end.

I just had my local engineering shop make up the washers for me, using EN8 steel, I asked him to radius the corners and make then twice as thick as the originals. I also got him to make the rivets. I think the whole lot cost me R150.00 or something like that, I even used the same clutch cover gasket. Since then I have had no issues with the clutch. 
Were the rivets done RR? :thumleft:

Still learning the TE's mechanical, but suppose one has to drill out the rivets, to replace the cup washers, and redo the rivers.👍

Yip; you drill the original rivets out and replace them with new rivets.
