    C650GT headlight cover

    Hello All, I am so excited and cannot wait for the moment to collect my bike soon. Now that I am searching for all sort of accessories to beautify the bike.. also searching for the headlight cover. I have seen GS1200 has got some sort of a clear plastic cover to protect the head lamp.. I wonder if we can find the same protector cover for C650GT? If there is can kindly help by informing please..
    Thanks

    Note that in the US, only the clear is legal. Not sure if that is true in Malaysia.

    Probably just use the clear 3M protection film over it to protect from scratches and damage. I am not aware of a fitted cover. Cee Bailey makes some but none available for the BMW C-Series.

    Amazon sells it in various sizes:

    I saw the sentence about color of cover but did not see the link until after I posted. Looks similar to the ones Cee Baily makes.

    3M film would be cheaper but depends on what the OP is looking for.

    Off topic, I bought a radiator cover from that company, nice piece, but overpriced in my mind and I thought was a simple install and instead you need to remove shroud and install directly over radiator. Will see once I get time to install. Wish there was a company that made some accessories for BMW more reasonably priced, but we all know BMW=Bring More Wallet.

    It's a matter of economics. I doubt there are enough of us (especially in the US) for it to be profitable to mass market. Paige at Aeroflow said they had a choice between the windshield or the headlight shield and figured there would be more of a market for the windshield so that's what they built.

    Unfortunately, in the US, scooters are still the red-headed stepchild of the two-wheeled world.
