Head light Covers
« on: 09 March 2019, 07:41:36 AM »
Where is the best place to get a pair of headlight covers for a 2004 fazer 6.
looking for light smoked or purple in colour.  I have looked on ebay and can't find any in the UK.

I got mine of e bay from China, surprisingly they fit and looked great. There are some on e bay at the moment.


Powerbronze holdings have them advertised on e bay if you want a uk seller.


My fz6 is S2 model, might be different shape on the 2004 though.

Thank you for your reply. I have now bought some clear ones that i'm going to paint with a light misting of purple.  I can paint the insides of them. I have a clear plastic primer so the paint stays on the plastic and can be seen from the outside.

I'd check with a local MoT testing station before you do this as it could be classed as a defective lens and be a fail.

As long as you paint the protector, (not the headlight) just remove the protector before mot test. Easily removed as they are only held in place with Velcro type fastenings. However mine passes every year with them fitted.


Technically I believe only clear and amber are road legal. But I have never had any hassle with dark and light tints fitted on my previous bikes.
