    Installed an LED headlight.

    $30 shipped to my door. Took some minor fab work to get it mounted. But seems to work well.

    I may need to modify my fab work I think it's focused a tad low.

    I will take it back off tomorrow and post some pictures of how I mounted it.

    I will await those pictures. I have an idea how you did it. I know the JNS has threaded mounts on the sides. Just like to see yours. Would save a lot of money.

    I slipped my mind a piece of aluminum bar stock into the OE headlight bracket. Seen here wrapped in black gorilla tape. Then tied some 14ga wire through holes I drilled in the edge of the bracket. All done with stuff I had on hand.

    Nice, but doesn't the headlight's stated 150 watts significantly exceed the TW's nominal stator output?
