Default Barracuda Moto Headlight

I've been trying to fit a Barracuda Moto headlight to my bike.

I'd be in love with it if I could find a smaller replacement for the gauge display.

I'd love to find a gauge setup that had the same features but was a third of the size, or smaller. Then I'd sneak it just above the headlight and in front of the top tipple clamp.

I haven't ridden the bike at night with this headlight but I suspect it isn't as bright as the stock unit, because the stock bulbs do not fit into the Barracuda housing. I'd love to find a ridiculously bright LED or something similar that fit.



In this picture the headlight is zip tied in place.

Joe, you could try to fit a Trail Tech Vapor speedo - shows everything I believe. Time/MPH/RPM/ODO/Temp...

And here's an Amazon review of one w/ some guy saying he fit one to a 2004:

I had one on my first DR650 (the previous owner had it installed) and it was nice. I'd put one on if I was going your route.

Looks like 370Steve had one on one of his bikes, too:
