Welcome to the site Hutchy, I have done this conversion several years ago and it was covered on here in a lengthy post. I will see if I can find that post later including a simple wiring diagram. If it has disappeared I will post up the info from memory and my records. The difference in the lighting is fantastic, like going from virtually none to reasonably good. If you can do a bit of basic wiring and make few simple brackets it’s not difficult as long as you have the fox eye front fairing bracket.

This is the original post from five years ago. http://foc-u.co.uk/index.php/topic,5252.0.html
It is three pages long with quite a lot of useful discussion and photo's, but don't let that put you off as it is just a matter of following the wiring diagram on page 1 and connecting the wires as shown. It is wired differently to the Foxeye (Mk2) method as that has changes to the main wiring harness from the Boxeye (Mk1) harness and uses different relays.  The method shown here gives exactly the same result and uses bog standard relays available from most car accessory shops etc. and in my opinion is a much easier option than trying to copy the Foxeye method.
The reason for making small brackets to support the fairing sides is that the mounting brackets on the Mk1 frame are in a slightly different position to the Mk2.
Don't hesitate to ask if you need further help or clarification and anyway let us know how you get on.
