since the headlights have to mount to the fairings in order to stay on i would say no.

I second this. Not to mention that it's illegal (at here in CA at least).

I used a set of small acerbis cyclops headlights. ones a projector type I believe, like the new yamaha r1. the other is a small oval type headlight which is the high beam. they're fitted in small cut outs on my track fairings and mounted with aluminum brackets. it has a great look and they work pretty well. this is your opportunity to stand apart from what everyone else is using. not to mention you'll save hundreds if you go that way. well worth it. most motorcycle manuals will have the headlight wiring showing you how to do it.

depending on if you have the front fairing, need something to fit in place of the headlights, or have nothing up front. You might be able to pick up a set of driving lights, or fog lights if you want super bright form walmart. or an auto parts store for about $20. then run to a hardware store and get some metal (such as the use for hanging like garage doors etc) its a long piece of metal/l brackets and such with several holes driled in a line along it.

Cut all the metal and fab up a way to mount the lights onto it and run a toggle switch to turn them on and off.

I'm going to be getting an acerbis cyclopse headlight soon. i took all but the tail plastics off the bike. if nobody posts any pics before I get it i'll put some up after I mount it.
I also jumped the bank angle sensor so I dont have to put that back on either.

If you can think it, you can achieve it! everything is possible and nothing is impossible.
