hello,

We saw at emoto a light cover wich cover the light offcoarse.
But some people told me that to put that light cover on you need to remove the complete body and light. Is this true?

Hi Rickadelic
It seems your timing was out when asking this question, day after Christmas is, well at best, a wobbly day! :friday: ... :laughing:

In answer to your question, eMoto supply the headlight protector with 3m tape.
There is no need to remove your headlight, the protector is to be stuck on the outside of the light for obvious reasons.
Its a 2 min job mate.
I bought mine from eMoto.

Pics for ya Ricky

Someone should make the headlight out of polycarbonate instead of glass so you don't need to use the headlight cover.

I use a thin polyfilm which suppose to protect the headlight instead of the hard plastic. You have to cut it yourself and use a heatgun to mold the film into place.

Thats always a good option, any signs of the heat from the headlight turning the film yellow Mimime?

Does it scratch when cleaning?

I've been using a heavy-gauge, adhesive-backed clear film which I cut to fit. It is sold as a headlight protector specifically. It's been on my bike for more that 1-1/2 years now (9500 miles) without yellowing or peeling. You can hardly tell it's on there unless you look closely. I ordered a small, square sheet since I couldn't find a pre-cut pattern.

Here are a couple of links you can try.

You can't tell that the film is on the headlight. The film is clear and has not discoloured after about 1 year of installation.

I went for the thinest film available because the MV headlight has that funny step in the middle. It was hard enough trying to mold the film to have an airtight fit.
