My brother did this with his Ninja, pulled the headlight apart, installed a green LED strip, cut to length and wired it up. I think his install was about $25 and 4 hours of work. For bolt on stuff, I'm not sure if Alren Ness or other places make Bolt On rings for the Vs. I did find a cool alternative from custom dynamics for the turn signals.

One of the members here added a circle of LEDs around his headlight. I'm sure there's picures somewhere. Getting the housing apart to install aLEDs as a headlight is a whole nother can o'worms

He (Louballs ?) found that the headlight could not be taken apart using the typical 350F oven technique. He had to install the LED's using a "build a ship in a bottle" method.

I took it from his post be wanted both LED accent lighting and aLED headlight. You're not gonna get that with a stock A headlamp without disassembling it somehow. I'm still working on that.

Switch to the DX fairing and you can at least get the LED headlight.
