Mostly for the looks. The headlight is alot of chrome to show, not hide behind the shield. Some need the extension to get a lightbar to fit.Are a headlight extension needed if I'm putting a MS fat 21" shield on my C.? I see it in the DLP cat. Or is it mainly for the looks.:doorag:
I'm not sure if I need one. I don't have the 21" fat shield mounted yet. I don't plan on installing a lightbar. So if the headlight isn't recessed too far into the headlight opening when the windshield is on the bike. I think I might leave it alone. Thanks for the offer.I think I am going to sell my 3" from Glen if you are looking for one.
Yeah Smoke II. A local...:thumbup: I just measured the cutout, its 7". When I do the steering bearing mod. I will be installing the shield. If I need a extension, I have peices of billet aluminum 1/2" thick from my dragrace stuff. My sure I can make/fab one if needed. :b2b:'Rosa, I have the 21" with a 9" cutout on a C. NO PROBLEMS at all. Not sure 'bout a 7" cutout. To be honest the 7" with a headlight extention may work better. I have a couple inch gap between my shield and the top of the headlight.
