And voila, she's done! I FINALLY got the front led running lights/turn signals installed today. I wanted to mount them from the rear ( no pun intended) of the hand guards, butt ( pun intended)馃槈 there wasn't enough room. So I surfaced mounted them and I'm pleased with the results. I also took advantage of the now empty mirror perch and screwed in a RAM ball mount for my cellphone. I'm not holding out for a lot of hope that I will be able to use it because of the vibration!馃檮
Supposed to be in the low 50's tomorrow, so I can get her out for yet another shake down run!馃槑 Cheers! jevers

Well done!

I had those same hand guards on the FZ-09 I sold to buy my SCR950. 馃槂
I had a roll of 3D carbon fiber wrap and trimmed them a little bit.
That might look odd on a retro bike, though.
Eddie, that carbon fiber really takes the hand guards to another level! It's tempting...... I think that I might've already crossed that retro line.Thanks for sharing the pic! jevers

That's the cool part about using the 3D wrap. It's only as permanent as you want it to be. Change your mind and it peels right off without any fuss. I bought a huge roll off eBay for like $15. My girlfriend has a V-Star 950 and the big chrome bezel on the instrument holder really blinded her sometimes with reflected sunlight. Less than an hour of measuring, cutting and fitting some wrap solved her problem.
That was three years ago and it's holding up fine. (pics of it and my Tracfone 1st attempt at wrapping anything.)

Very cool! I might have to pick up a roll of that and experiment.
