Looking for Film Headlight protector

X-Pel made a scotchcal 40mil film kit for the 2000-2004 LT that I really liked, but it doesn't appear from their website they are offering one for the 2005/06. Has anyone else found a similar film product (I don't like the CB hard plastic guard)? The search uncovered only one prior post back in July, with no replies, so I'm not sure the poster is still on the board.

Thanks in advance.

Keith from UK posted on the old site that using a film on the headlight on an 05 caused the lens to crack. Apparently heat build up causes this. Unlike the pre-2205 bikes the headlight lens is not glass.

Hi Phil,

I purchased a "kit" from eBay from Auto-trim designs, that contained the headlight covers in addition to fender, mirror and fairing covers. I don't know if they offer just headlight covers, but it wouldn't hurt to ask. They were pretty good to deal with and the product seems to be holding up well. I contacted them previously at [email protected]

Good luck,
Tim
