What do you think??

So I picked up a used Memphis batwing and painted her up to try and match my 07 650. What do you all think of the lines etc?? Headlight cut out is a bit big for some reason and I do get a draft through there. Don't know what's up with that. Any tips?

Looks Great! I think I'd try to find a bigger headlight maybe? If that's possible?

Yes I painted myself. Bought the colorite spraycan kit. Thanks for the responses.

As for the headlight gap...does it look bad to you or am I too picky? Also would a classic's headlight fit mine? I notice they are bigger in diameter.

It doesn't look bad, I just prefer the bigger headlights. Not sure about the classic fit..

Great looking fairing and nice job on the paint. +1 on the bigger headlight. I think it will look better.

Yeah I really think a larger headlight would fit nicer. I think the fairing actually was mad for a classic and that's why it looks so.

Anyone have a classic headlight for sale???

it seems your options are to either keep it the way it is, get a bigger headlight, or add bondo or fiberglass to the fairing to close the gap and then repaint it.
