There's no difference between the 04 and 05 B models as relates to the headlamp or mounting. All attach to the top triple tree mounting points. Though if the 05 uses the small headlamp a D unit will mount right up with no issues.
There are a couple aftermarket headlamp cowlings that will work with the 3D headlamp. Some look nicer than others.
What comes to mind are Breathless Performance, Speed Point, and there was a member here, DDstreetrod, that was making one though he has not been active here in 2 years.

Glad you found it. Was it ran through the swingarm and chafing? Good troubleshooting. As far as I am concerned, a high-flow filter is next. Of course, the list of things I want to do keeps getting bigger.
...on my stock 2005 B SUCKS! :mad: I've owned it from brand new. When I'm making a turn I have to down shift into first gear. Even using second the friggin' thing will buck like a bronco,I just want to be able to roll on the throttle and GO. It has stock gearing so I need to change a sprocket. I...
I went and got my VRSCB dyno tuned today. Max horsepower was 107.60 at the tire, and Max torque value was 73.73 ft. lbs. Not bad. The tech optimized the fuel efficiency and power in every gear. Well worth the money. The only mods are Screaming Eagle air filter and Tab Performance slip-on...
