    I would also like a parts list, looks like what I want to do. I wonder if a guy could seal the light up from water. Would hate to be halfway between tullyweeds and pucker brush and get caught at night in the rain.

    Just got to looking close at my headlight bezels and guess what, in 2017 polaris has made them a single piece now. There is no removable piece like on the years before. Guess I will need new bezels if I change things, must be a Canadian thing, eh.

    Yes Polaris did change the headlight bezel. Give cyclesprings a call I think they are making their own so they can keep doing the conversion on the 2017. I'm not sure if it's available yet tho

    Maybe I can be a beta tester for them.

    Just an interesting fact that I never noticed and haven't seen it pointed out in the forum. Maybe I just missed it. Maybe I am late to the party. lol. The Canadian version with outside headlights also has a taller center nose piece where the "POLARIS" is stamped. Obviously to cover the area that should be taken up by the center lights. If a Canadian was doing the reverse conversion, they would need to buy this.

    You could be right on the center nose thing. I never noticed that and I already ordered the 60mm Hella's :(

    Was there a Hedgehog in any of those pics, lol. Hey, I meant to to you last week something about one of your post. You showed some pics of yourself as well as you had your wife in a few pics. That was nice of you to let us see what the true Hedgehog and wife look like! Its always cool to see what people actually look like, at least to me it is. Makes things a little more down to earth and friendly! Anyhow, thanks for sharing those pics, take care

    I noticed this before ordering my one.
    So........
    I asked Polaris UK for help and information for what parts I would need and they said "Ask a dealer"
    So I asked a dealer.
    The dealer asked Polaris.
    Polaris asked. "What are the part numbers?"

    Oh!
    Big, big fail by Polaris with that one.

    I have seen it on one in the UK but that may have been a US import changed to meet EU specifications rather than a Canadian/EU model with the centre lights added.
