Default How hard would it be to convert my bike into a street fighter?

So I am liking those street fighter stunt looks. I am just wondering how hard to it would be to install those street fighter headlights from Ebay. I tried to take of the front fairing of the F4I and it seems complicated and just put it back on. Thanks guys. And if you also know any website that gives steps to steps tutorial on how to remove and install the headlights please share!

If you strip the fairings, you'll need new support brackets for the headlight.
I'm not sure the kit them in with the head-light or not.

It's not super-difficult, but you will need a confident set of mechanical skills.
You should also have a basic grasp of automotive/motorcycle wiring, in case
the stock harness won't meet your needs.

This part sounds obvious, but try to stay organized. Put things in an order as you
take-off/dis-assemblevarious components. Put them far enough away, that you don't have to move them again as you work on the bike.

Whenever possible, put bolts back in they're piece so you don't
have a bag/box/pile of bolt/screw/washers to choose from.

If the bolt is stuck, hose it with break-free and walk away! I prefer to spend that
15 minutes chilling in the house not wrestling a snapped/broken fastner.

You can write a book, people have, but these couple of tips will take you a
long way to learning to work on your bike.
