    UK models have lights permanently on and I rarely if ever use high beam so I reckon I'll be OK.
    Also, this mod is purely for extra daytime visibility as I can't remember the last time I rode at night.
    I bought these for high beam, just in case I ever go down the diode route with low / high beam on together:

    Nice. Why do you have Gold calipers? I have the same paintjob and my calipers are red. Strange

    Nice work Stevex! Looks good!

    Do you have anymore detail photos on how you mounted the HID in the reflector/housing?

    Red / gold calipers, no idea I'm afraid, lucky though because I prefer the gold ones.
    Six5, no other photos, but the HID bulbs come with various mounting plates; I just ordered one with the same plate as the original H7 halogen bulb, so fitting it is identical, just had to enlarge the slot in the rubber cover.

    Nice.

    Even though you don't ride at night, please turn it on sometime when it is dark and tell us what you think of the beam pattern and illumination distance. Maybe post a photo.....

    Now that looks tidy!

    I'm curious, what are the rearward frame savers you have fitted? I have a set that are pretty ugly and don't match the Rhinomoto sliders up front, and yours look much cleaner.

    When Aprilia were in financial difficulties in the early 2000's they started to use up old stock on new models. Red calipers from the earlier Mille's were used on some Tuono's and some lucky b'stards even got 57mm TB's on their otherwise bog standard Tuonos.
    FUCK THE MAGS


    Never live the same day twice. (My wife nearly pissed her self laughing when she read my signature line, because she reckons she has never met anyone in the whole of her life who hates change more than me) She does have a point .

    Sorry, no idea, they came fitted when I bought the bike; I guess if you bought some Delrin bar, any decent machine shop could turn some up to your spec for pennies.
