Thoughts on headlight tint.

Plans for my busa is to murder it out as much as possible! :D. When I bought it it looks as someone has keyed the headlight a bit. Looking to darken the look anyways and in my search for a headlight cover I stumbled across this company.

Lamin-x Protective Films - Protect with Style

Anyone use these guys? They have one for the busa Headlight also. Anyone suggest a better cover? At the price might as well try it out its only 20 bucks.

Another thing you can do is open up the headlight and blacken the chrome background of it...like this pic. It will give you the murder look with OUT dimming and tining the need brights at night time.

No tint for me. I need all the light I can get as I ride at night. It looks cool with the tint though. Would you believe I used to live in Coventry R. I.:laugh:

I looked at that website and with the HID's and their 5% tint covers, it might look pretty good and not take away from your light. might try it too.

BigRod1300..do you lose the side reflectiveness of the light doing your mod? where i live the deer tend to pop out of the ditches as you drive by, good to have the peripheral light.

Got this one from Kempy about $40. It attaches with 4 small velcro tabs, so you can remove it at night.

I tried their tech area but gave up before I could find any info on the affect it had on the light. It's not for me but to each their own. If there's no impact to night visibilty I say go for it.
