    2012 Speed Triple Headlight Upgraded

    Over the course of a year and under the radar of the Misses.
    I've finally collected the following:2016+ Complete Headlight Assembly,48+ additional OEM parts,Speciality Crimper tool, Sumitomo 6 pin connector blocks/pins ect required to perform the upgrade,and transform the overall appearance of my 2012 Speed Triple.

    All in all.It wasn't cheap but for me It was worth it!.

    A Very Special Thanks goes out to DEcosse.
    For his willingness to share his infinite knowledge at a moments request, and see this project through from commencement to completion.

    Looks great! It appears that the headlight assembly drop is about the same as what you get with the 675 headlight bracket swap...

    Thanks! The drop is pretty significant and it also seems to be more recessed then the original setup.
    Cannot comment on the similarities between the 675 bracket swap,as I'm not very familiar with it.
    Here's another photo for reference.

    Now I see, you've upgraded your entire headlight assembly with one from a newer model...looks factory. I swapped out the stock headlight bracket on my 2014 S3R for the Street Triple bracket of the same year which dropped everything about an inch.

    Now you see...
    The updated assembly drop is significant from original spec,and greater than the 1inch result from your Street Triple subframe swap.
    Once again. Using my piss poor photos with straight lines drawn for reference.

    It looks killer sure! but if there was once any wind protection at speed,there isn't anymore.

    Any chance you can share more details of parts and procedures so that one can try to replicate?

    There always a chance. Flattery will get you everywhere.

    Your chances...not so good.
