PostSubject: Head light cover protector   Fri Jan 15, 2010 11:27 am



Product Description

It can be unbelievably expensive to replace a cracked or rock chipped headlight lens. Some lenses are over two hundred dollars. Apply this cut-to-fit, double polished, ultra-clear, flexible film and you’ll be ready for common detours, gravelly back roads and the big Cassier-to-Alcan-to-Anchorage (and back) ride. The headlight shield goes directly on the headlight lens so there is no place to trap moisture, dirt, and bugs. It is also UV resistant, won’t affect light pattern or output, and is all but unnoticeable. Uses a unique, durable, peel and apply, later-removable, 3M adhesive. Face oncoming traffic on gravel surfaces without fear. Also great as a custom see thru tank pad. Medium 12" x 12", Large 12" x 24".
$14.00 and $26.00 for the large one
They also have a thicker proctector that is a few $ more.

I ordered at first the 14 mil. but the lady said they were out
and back ordered.
When I checked my email I got your email stating they had a 60mil.I called back to change the order for the 60mil. and she said they did have both in stock.

When you get it and install it let us know. I would be real interested how well the 60mil fits to the curves.

I received the 60 mm. yesterday and the stuff is like bullet proof! Much to thick for the S/W application. It was hard to cut and does not conform to the bottom of the head light.
The good thing was it arrived defective. The adhesive was not smooth and after being installed you could see a lot of the adhesive under the plastic.
I called the Company back and the same day they sent me out the 14mm. and gave me credit for the difference.
I will report next week about the latest installation.

I received the 14mm. today and it is by far, much easer to install and cut to size.
It does not afford the same protection as the 60mm but I think I will be happier.
It was much easer to conform to our head light angels than the 60mm

After installing the 14mm. yesterday I can only say that it was imposable to install with out getting bubbles underneath the plastic and even though I cut small openings in each bubble in order to push out the air, it still is far from perfect and would probably not recommend the product.

OK Live and learn the hard way some times.

I would never recommend this product to any one. No

After trying to remove all the bubbles with a pin and (squeezing like a pimple) you could still see the glue underneath.

The worst part was when I tried to remove it all together. It pealed off some of the headlight plastic film and now looks

%^&*@ terrible. and to replace the headlight was totally out of the question.

Maybe using a heat gun to remove the stuff would have been better. Question

Cee Bailey's makes a headlight protector specifically for the Swing. I have not purchased one, but am strongly considering it. $35, so slightly more expensive than the above solution, but it is custom cut and fit for the Silver Wing headlight lens. Also, since it is just a big piece of lexan, I suspect it would protect from impact better than the film.

Looks like a great choice. If I had seen this before, it definitely would have been used instead of that plastic film I used.

Thanks for this discussion. I hadn't thought about headlight protection. And thanks, kyouteki, for the link. It looks like a great protector and I just ordered one.
