    I would like to move the center headlights (the high beams) to the outermost position and the light that is there to the covered up hole next to the new location of the high beam lights. In other words make it more like a standard car/truck setup.

    Does anybody have experience in doing this? I am concerned about mounting the lights and how easy/hard it would be moving wiring.

    Thanks for any input.

    This would also be considered the "Canadian Version" I am sure there are others that have done this conversion. I think there may be kits too. But that might just be to add lights, not just move existing ones.

    Don't nessecerly want to add more lights than I have at present, maybe change to LED at a latter date. Just want to open up the center intake and look a little more traditional by having all the lights in a more familiar pattern for oncoming traffic.
    Thanks for your posts.

    You could also get the Canadian conversion, then put the center lights on a switch, to be used only when you want to.

    The
    The center lights do not mount in the outer positions (either of them)... I've tried.

    Canadian version is the only way to go.

    Most leave their center lights in use when doing the Canadian version. But I'm with you... would prefer to kill the center lights and run like the Canuks!

    I prefer to stand out from the crowd a little. Hence the slingshot in the first place. ;)

    I did that to mine about a month ago but I added a set of FX-R projectors

    I did it because I don't like the center headlight and I feel the center projectors are low quality.

    There's not much you just need the projectors and the HIDs with the harness. The projectors use D2S bulbs so there's lots of options, just depends on how much you want to spend on bulbs. They range from $50 up to over $200

    There's only one catch about retrofitting these projectors, they're not 100% water proof so if you drive in the rain than I wouldn't do this. I don't drive in the rain so I'm not worried about it.

    If you still would like more information let me know because these are not for everyone
