I have been seeing quite a few guys using track plastics for street use. I love the R1 in its track cloths, so i figure why not? I was wondering if anyone can recommend a head light. I know ppg makes a single head light set up, but is way over prices. I see guys just mount lights under the air ducts. I mean unless someone can recommend a cheaper alternative to ppgs. Tail lights at simple to do.

Also, post pics of street bikes in track form!!!!!!!!!!!!

Try Catalyst maybe to see if you can get a front fairing with just one headlight cut out? That way you could use a stock one. I like the single headlight look as well.

I recommend catalyst racing composites with the head light cutouts. I have been running them for over a year now and it is great. You get the benefits of track plastic but retain your headlights for night time. I wired my turn signals into the running lights on the outside and put in yellow bulbs. I also don't run the mirrors anymore it looks better without them and MS state law doesnt specify that bikes need mirrors.

I'm getting ready to do the same thing with a 00-01 R1 modeled after firehawks. I just ordered a cleverwolf endurance light this week hopefuly it will get here in less than a month. OPP sells a endurance light also that was one of my other options, either way getting rid of the overly complicated stock fairings is a good thing

I dont see the point going to use buying track plastics if you going to have both head lights and passenger seat. Stock looks better with that set up imho. I may just go the the single head light route and fab up some small red L.E.D.S in the rear.

The point is, easy track set up and still have a street legal bike. I would swap the tail but I use the trunk and helmet locking quiet a bit.

You asked for opinions you should have been more specific on what you were looking for.
