Hey folks  Grin
One of the mods I have been mulling over for quite some time was the Hesa "Fire" headlight.  I liked the look of it on CDawg's bike but his doesn't have a fairing.  I want to keep my fairing but am not sure how it will look or fit.  I've done a photochop (okay it's not the best so maybe that's why I'm shying away from this light lately).  Let me hear people's suggestions/ideas.  If there is anybody out there that has done this headlight mod with a fairing a picture would be greatly appreciated.



Kind of reminds me of the headlight/fairing mod that Grubby did to his bike and I really liked.
Maybe if I darken the headlight in the photochop it would look better.  Huh?

John, I'm not a big fan as I tend to like the big stock old school round headlight on the monster.
 But I think if that headlight was black would look good in that set up.
So I say go for it, it's your bike follow your heart.

Grifo, I know what you mean.  When I look at the original picture and the photochop I'm just not feeling the hesa light like I was a year or two ago.  I'm hoping that someone has a pic of the mod already done.  Or maybe I'll get off my ass and re-edit the chop.

Here's the original pic for reference:


Maybe just lowering the headlight/fairing/gauges would be enough to make me happy for the time being.

Is that thing really that big ? I'd be really concerned if you hit a good bump and the fender smacks the bottom of it.

Not really sure, that's why I am looking for some firsthand experience.  Let me see if I can find a pic of CDawg's bike for reference.

Found a pic of CDawg's bike here: http://ducatimonsterforum.org/index.php?topic=7364.0



Looks like the size on my photochop is off and I would have to mount the headlight differently as it looks like there wouldn't be space for the fairing using the OEM headlight mount.

that's like a fancy version of my headlights. you could drop the headlight mounting ears like a half a hole and that might give enough room on top to fit the fairing. Streetfighters Inc sells that headlight. The german dude that runs it is good people, I've dealt with them a few times.

I think Streetfighters Inc is where I first saw that headlight and starting imagining it on my bike.  I saw it on CDawgs and liked it then saw your Project Terremoto and liked that it may look something like yours as a matter of fact.

My lights are both the same size though. And they're just projectors mounted into a stainless bezel that the fairing is supposed to bolt over. It's the same idea as the Hesa but not as fancy and well packaged. But it's supposed to have the fairing on it too like I said.

Sorry about that Oni, I beleive they should have been pointed down a little farther but with the way it bounces around it keeps working its way back up.

Finally got around to doing some new photochops showing the correct size.

Below are images of:
my bike with current original headlight
photochop of same with Hesa light
photochop with Hesa light and lowered light/fairing
photochop with original light and lowered light/fairing






If anybody has this light installed, please post a head-on view so I can verify mounting point.  Thanks.

I don't mind the lowered Hesa light, but I'm still a fan of the stock one.

I love it. I almost like it better than mine cause it would be a lot less troublesome and I had to fix mine a few times.

I still like the original alien fairing the best of ANY I've ever seen.

I agree with Mario on the round headlight monster etc.  I do like the Hesa with the fairing looks more modern.  The fairing sets the bike off in a good way.  For what its worth thats my input.

I like the looks of the lowered hesa light better than the options with the stock light.

Whatever happens, just be warned that if you don't take the rubber grommets out from where the headlight mounting tabs attach to the U shape bracket, that thing will bounce around like stripper on crank and will cut the grommets in half. If it's not very heavy at all then it wouldn't matter but any kind of heft and you'll go the the same shit I had to.
