  • headlight nacelle

    does anyone know of a headlight nacelle that has mounting hardware? i have found many but none have hardware? bad dad used to make one but i spoke with them on phone and they no longer make nacelle for roadstars but theres actually came with hardware that slid over fork tubes and allowed for fasteners on the side of nacelle to hole it steady. any help would be much appreciated.

    There has been a few folks that have modded a HD nacelle but I'm sure it required DIY hardware........good luck
    not all those who wander are lost......

        Send a personal message to GreenMachine. He used a Harley one and it looks great. He also set up another one for a clinic member and mailed it to him. He last logged in in July so it may take him a while to respond. I'll send him a reminder text.

          I modified a Road King nacelle to fit on my bike. I had to trim off some of the back side of the nacelle, trimmed some off of the upper fork tins, and cut some of the front side of the speedo housing to get it to fit. I used split ring pipe hangers on the forks for the lower mounts and I drilled and tapped the upper triple tree for the top mounting points. It was quite a bit of work, but it turned out nice.

            thanks all who replied, do u have any photos or written down dimensions of where u made trims, mounting holes, etc.? was the nacelle you used from a roadking? there is an ebay nacelle listed for our bikes but it has no hardware. says its all glass and they are out of texas?? i wonder if the split ring and tapped tree would work with the ebay nacelle and save some trimming? any thoughts? they are pretty cheap($110.00 shipped)

              I took a look on eBay. I would guess that these are designed to fit right over the triple tree with the top tins removed and avoid any trimming. It looks like you could drill holes in the nacelle, and use the split ring hangers for both the top and bottom mounting points. I think you would need the guts from a Road King headlight to mount a headlight into the nacelle?

              I do have some photos etc from when I did the mod. PM me your email address and I'll send you what I have. I used a Road King nacelle.
