Painted Headlight Bezel & Vent Screens

Installed my Vent Screen branded Vent Screens that I purchased off facebook..... while in there I opted to buy a can of gloss black Krylon and put a few coats on the headlight bezels.

I think the screens really make the bike look sporty, would be a very easy DYI project for someone with a little time to trace a template and cut some metal mesh. Also like the painted bezels too- $4.00 upgrade that just makes the front end a little more cohesive in my opinion. Figured I'd try and pamper her before the polar vortex hits me tonight into Wednesday.

That looks great, really like the gloss black on the headlight bezels also. It isn't always the big / obvious changes that make a difference, subtle touches like this really add up and make a difference in the appearance. Good Job.

I did the same thing to mine. It just went so much better with my gloss black paint job. I got a $5 piece of gutter guard to make the vents from Home Depot and a can of spray paint. It was the finishing touches to go with my CD Trubeam headlight.
