2012 Street triple headlight bracket
« on: December 04, 2019, 09:02:58 PM »
Hi hoping someone can check I am not going mad.  I have come to the conclusion that you can't mount a 2012 (slanty) headlight bracket to a 2013 model, is this correct?

Am i missing something  :027:...why would you not just use your 2013 bracket to mount the 2013 lights ?

CBUK, not quite sure what you are trying to do but use Fowlers Parts website (other parts websites are available) and check the VIN range and models used on for any parts

Hi, I realise that the request sounds odd.  Basically I bought the bike and it needs some work to get it ship shape.  One job is putting the headlights back to OEM. 


I won a set of 'slanty' eye headlights on eBay complete with bracket from a 2012 model, but it does not fit (comes up a bit too narrow to fit the frame of a 2013 model). Thanks for the tip re fowlers parts site, the part I I need is https://www.fowlersparts.co.uk/parts/view/T2708008

I think I must have this part, https://www.fowlersparts.co.uk/parts/view/T2700717 but confusingly it had 'slanty' lights rather than round ones fitted!

Argh, now I see.
The 2011-12 model Streets run the same frame as 2007-10 models but have slanty headlights (and a few other updates).
The 13-16 model has updated frame, low exhaust etc and keeps on with the same slanty headlights, but with an updated bracket to match the newer frame.
The Gen1.1 (11-12) few differences are not always clear on parts sites. Ie no specific picture for slanty headlights onto gen frame bracket.
In short you need the 2013+ bracket

Ohh gawd why?!? 

Yes.  It needs rescuing.   

Good luck, a noble cause.

As Dave says, Good on you CB, you appear to have rescued that Street from an abusive relationship.

Gen 1 round headlights, classic one round headlight - fine.
But that thing!

Thanks chaps, bracket now ordered, I will put the LSL conversion kit up on eBay, maybe someone else wants to make their bike look 'unique'!?!

And yeah it does seem as if it has been a little unloved, the more panels I remove  :006:
Quite a fun project though, I'm determined to get this thing looking and running sweet.  Once the headlights are dealt with its onto the next issue which is that the radiator fan does not come on when commanded by the ECU, it does run however when dropping 12v across it.

Ok LSL Urban headlight conversion kit. pose its looks a bit MV Brutale,... from 100 yards away and without my glasses.
Fortunately it might have decent resale value
