Pisano sent me a message complimenting me on my Stryker fairing and asking how I thought it would look with the Morimoto LED headlight - the one with the fins that has a kinship to the double barrel GRiSO exhaust. I'm not sure I'm quite sold on the LED headlight concept just yet, but it does pose an interesting thought experiment and a fun PhotoShop opportunity. I do love the stock can and plan to keep it on my current G, but not quite ready for the LEDs. Then again, it does look pretty bad-ass.

The headlight and Stryker fairing look good. The exhaust I've never been a fan of which is why I changed mine.

Wow Pete thanks for doing that.  Great job once again!  

The Morimoto is a bit longer than most LEDS and the Stryker fairing washes the length out nicely.  Looks evil and hungry - in a good way- but might be too busy.

I can't make up my mind on the fairing and LED combo but I'm convinced that the fairing rules.

I, for one, welcome our new alien robot overlords.

Personally I prefer the exhaust 8v shape rather than the cyclops headlight cyclops

Jokes aside, I actually think it looks great. I am almost tempted to reinstall my Stryker fairing (suitably orangified, of course).

Wanna go halvesies in a pair, Pete?

Like beetle the oem exhaust is unique to m/cling & for that reason I'll keep mine.
The fairing isn't bad but the LED lights look like a protracted arsehole.

Looking at that exhaust, it is so unique .................... I want one.

If any Australien has a spare, even one with side damage I would gladly relieve you of ownership.

I wish to mount it to my tray back ute, as long as no damage is visible from the rear.

Thanks guys, PM sent to Pete for a slightly damaged one, as only the end will be visible on my ute.
Pictures will follow when its done.

Have considered it may be too restrictive for a 4 litre six cylinder, but then I only drive at 1,5000 rpm.
So I may have to cut and gut it, another reason for a less than perfect example.

Those pristine mufflers will be worth big bucks in 10 years ................ to the resto boys.

Cheers,
Wayne.

Hi Ghezzi,

Why not beat the increase-in-value curve and trade me you plastic wheels for my mint exhaust?
I look forward your polite reply!
