Yes, if you can find someone selling an old kit, as I don't believe they are being made anymore. I think the company's name was Powerbronze?

I'd like one too. I have contacted Powerbronze to see if they can make me one but all they did was put me on their email list! No reply regarding the fairing...
They did the same to me. no answer......

Actually, GFK = Glasfaserverstärkter Kunststoff = Fiberglass reinforced plastic.

as cheap fairings are either made of abs plastic or fibreglass,
i felt free to inform you that ricambi-weiss uses epoxy resin
for their GFK fairings.

Just to add to the confusion.

'Fibreglass' is used as a generic term that is used to describe any resin reinforced fibre. The resin can be either polyester or epoxy based. To be pedantic 'fibreglass' just refers to the fibre weave or matting that is used with the resin.

Hi Phil

One light is wired dipped beam, the other high beam. No problems.

No offense to anyone that has one of the dual headlight fairings, but I honestly have never liked the look. The rectangular headlight, while arguably not the most attractive decision, still makes the ss look uniquely Ducati.......I don't think the dual set up is any more attractive and actually it screams mid-90s Yamaha FZR to me............I would totally stick with the stock set up.......IMO of course........

I agree that it defines the bike but the twin headlights do provide a solution to getting more light to see where you are going.

When I was looking into getting that set up, it was to change the appearance of my CR to make it different than all of my buddies SP's. If I did not have the SP at the time I do not think that I would have given it a second thought. I have sold the SP since and have settled on the cyclops look.

I'd love to have a single round headlight offset to one side, Suzuka-8-Hours style. Saw a picture of an 888 done up that way and it was the sex :)

Never seen a kit for the 900SS though, and the single square look has kinda grown on me too.

Cheers

'nother option: check out Gajus' bike on page 118 of the sticky Supersport Pictures thread, its #1180. About 2/3 the way down, third pic. I personally like the period look of the stock rectangular light (851/888 flavor mmmmm) but the one Gajus uses works pretty damn good for an updated look. Looks like the smaller "projector" lamps - don't know how good they work, or if there are electrical issues, but the look is cool. I agree about the dated Yamaha look - doesn't do it for me. If yer just looking for more light there's a thread about converting to rectangular Euro H4's - I've had these on cars and they put a lot of light right where you want it. TT
