Hey all, I'm pretty new to the forum. Picked up my "Canadian" 2011 Brutale 1090R back in Feb. and couldn't be happier :yo:

Just wondering if anyone has used protective film for the Brutale headlight. Living in a place where riding after winter means many flying rock chips :jsm: I'm just checking my options and don't want to overheat my headlight.

PS - I'm far from a fan of the velcro'd shield.

I have tried to install headlight protective film on the Brutale headlight.

Unfortunately, due to the curvature of the lens, the film looked like crap when installed and I reverted to plastic headlight protectors.

These can be sourced from Design Corse:

or from Australian Motorcycle Headlight Protectors:

:)

P.S. You don't have to be a 'fan' of the Velcro'ed shield - it doesn't look that bad and it's better protection than film.

+ 1 for the AMHP guard. It doesn't look great but it's not that bad. I recently had to replace the headlight on my < 12 month old bike and would very much like to avoid doing so again :mad:

Yes, the plastic headlight protector is, in my humble opinion, the only true and safe option to prevent stone chips / glass breakage.

I would also recommend using the rectangular / strip "hook and loop" adhesive, instead of the round ones that are supplied with the protectors - looks better - see pics below - and it also fits better.

3M makes this product - in black or white (no clear/transparent to my knowledge).

I've got a headlight protector from design corse fitted. From a couple of feet away you can't tell its there.

Thanks, the rectangular attachments definitely look a lot better than the round. I was definitely concerned about how any films would deal with the curve at the top of the headlight.
