Default F4 aftermarket headlight??

ive been looking around for an aftermarket headlight for my 2000 600 f4, and sadly, i have had absolutely no luck! anyone know of any direct bolt on lights for these without having to change out the fairing? my bike has a full airbrush job on it, so i dont want to have to convert the fairing. any help would be amazing! thanks!

Check motorcycle salvage yards as well.

Of course, there's always factory Honda parts but new oem will be expensive.

well, im looking more for something maybe with halo projectors, or with leds or something. and it looks like the kits on ebay are projectors that i would have to try to fit into my current housing, which i dont really want to tear apart if i dont have to.

More than likely, you'll have to mod the oem light for those modifications.

I thought you were just looking for another basic aftermarket housing.
If your looking for projectors or LED's inside then you (or someone else) will have to open the housing.

Do a HID retrofit. I have done this to my 900RR, 1098s, and 4Runner. Check out Complete Retrofit Kits from The Retrofit Source Inc

They even have my bike on there as an example...Examples of Headlight Retrofits from The Retrofit Source Inc

thanks vfr. will probably look into getting that sometime this summer! first i gotta decide if i want to do the f4i front end swap or not. if i do that, i might just redo the whole bike and lose the airbrush.
