I know you researched these before buying, so can you point me to a good source of info? There is a huge difference and I do not want to run the risk of component failure and not be properly illuminated. Of course, again, for me, it can also be a cosmetic thing.
Be sure check used book condition from the seller's description. I definitely understand budget too. This would be one way I could very inexpensively increase ground clearance with no modification to the bike itself well almost. A few dollars here and a few dollars there, and my mental build plan adds up. Installing the lights was pretty simple; black was ground, white was hot. Powder coat is generally much more durable than rattle can paint resistant to fuel and other solvents too , and it completely cures in mere minutes instead of days. I don't know how long they've been available as I just discovered it last year myself.

The filter is sealed by being sandwiched between the cover and backing plate. They are axel pegs for bmx bikes. But, if these Kellerman's meet my needs for functionality. I spent a lot of time looking at various options. Used a little rattle can on the headlamp bracket and got the Biltwell moto bars installed.

There was also a small gap between the top of the mounts and the backside of the metal plate on the the filter. It was a little pricey but fit the bill nicely. Shaped the bracket to fit the front down tube and bottle; rattle canned it semi gloss black. She denied she even pulled out in front of me. The hole in the center was to compensate for the gold eagle riveted to the outside of the current one.
It may be a little late for my recommendation to help you now, Rod, but I'll throw it out there for the possible benefit to others.

She made it clear that if she was going to be riding on the back of this thing, those tires were going on by somebody who new what they were doing. The aluminum rim is lighter than the stocker, and generally speaking a larger rim allows the use of a tire with a lower aspect ratio. Not many people make stupid choices, really. Used the rattle can primer and semi-gloss black; and now I had the beginnings of a pair of custom foot begs.
How stupid could I have been. That alone is a big benefit for me. Mixing and matching aspect ratios gives you another tuning variable that can allow fine tuning chassis pitch and handling characteristics. Got everything stripped down and removed all the broken parts. Replaced the the clutch cover with a stock cover; used a little rattle can spray paint in black Biltwell Moto bars arrived along with a Black chrome gas cap. Got these all installed and had planned to relocate my turn signals the next weekend when disaster struck second weekend in August. It will keep me busy until the front springs arrive.
