What do you think?

I have an idea in my head that the FZ1N headlight might look good on my speed triple. Thoughs?

Here are a few pics for reference. Along with another (black) speed triple with an aftermarket headlight to compare.

Some would say anything is an improvement while others would say the twin headlight setup is a traditional look for Triumph and you are messing up the "face" of the Speed Triple.
I think the FZ headlight would look good.

I agree with bumble, it would look good and if I had a triumph I would do it myself

I'm not at all opposed to single headlight setups on the Triumphs but I don't like that one personally.

I like the dual headlight setup personally... that said, the Yami headlight would look good too. If you decide to convert, I'd be interested in picking up your S3 parts to put on my naked Sprint.

Any suggestions? I'm not a huge fan of the headlight on thr black speed triple. I wish I had more retrofitted headlights to compare
