I finished installing the headlight today. Would have taken less than 2 mins but I had to come up with a solution to block out the glare that was now reflecting off the fairing.
Since Ive been doing some extensive weather stripping repair on my house I decided I would use some extra I had laying around. Works good. I attached some on the inside of the front fairing and also around the edge of the headlight itself. Time will tell how well this holds up.

I am very happy with the result. Won't know how much better the beam pattern works until I can take it for a test drive. Snow on the ground right now so it will have to wait. Regardless, I know the light output is better than stock, it looks badass, and it uses less power which will be of benefit when I run heated grips and auxiliary lights.
I've heard that the lens scratches easily so I plan on getting a screen protector for an ipad and cutting it to size to fit the headlight.
