33mm. I used some of the generic ones and they were ok except for the one gouging at the cables on the left side of the bike. This was fixed by grinding down the extra material not needed and reshaping it.



They also held the headlight really close to the gauges.

Hey blindstitch, did you add rubber to make those fit tight?




Didn't need any rubbers. But I did upgrade the nut and bolt holding them on. The screw and nut held fine but it became a pain.

Okay, I ordered the headlight bracket and got it today. I put it on and it fits good and snug. Now the problem is how do I get a dome headlight housing unit for the headlight. I took some pics to help you guys see my problem.



Also, I had a fairing on the bike and I didn't like thats why I need the headlight bracket. Well.... I have A LOT!!! of extra wire that take up space (See on picture) How can I eliminate this problem?



Thanks, Randall Brooks



Note: Bike is dirty right now. Don't get mad at me =(

A bunch of wires that are getting on my nerves. Anyone got ideas? I'm about to just use a pair of scissors =)



Me holding the headlight where it should go.



Wires.. yay. NOT!



The headlight bracket.

Doesn't need to be a cx custom. Could really be any large headlight bucket. Mine is from a yamaha 1100. Works just fine.
