Installing clear / crystal front lenses 8 Years, 4 Months ago Karma: 47
Hi guys,

Hoping that my crystal headlights will arrive soon this morning.
I presume these are a simple enough fit, but I've seen horror stories before about these flying off at speed.

Do you guys have any helpful pointers when installing these?

Thanks, and see you hopefully at the Big Meet in 6 days.

Wrap two rounds of insulating tape around the steel nipple on the reflector before popping it into the indicator element.

No horrors then

x2 it was slips advice that I did it myself - they are a shocking design but a small bit of tape and they sit in solid.
