From the help of a dremel and a Tom Tom sat nav windscreen holder i have rigged a ball joint flip up or down filter for the 170 striker..time will tell if it will see the test of time it seem's robust enough but we will find out..

That looks handy, they're a pain in the arse when you're whipping them on and off. It's not even as if you can slip it into a pocket easily with the shape of them as they come.. :thumbs:

Millet, you should drill a 25mm hole in the center of that filter, you will get a better beam, without losing the colour

I have thought about it mate.. :thumbs:

I cut all but 1 lobe of mine, and melted/bent it 90 degrees from it's original position, it slips on and off no problem, wrap 2x round with insulation tape and it is a snug fit.

 

That's a smart idea but looks too permanent for me. :thumbs:

To be honest I did it too mine and wised i never, Dont get me wrong i still use it now after two seasons but it throw a circle white beam rim when the filters on and it takes a bit of getting used too, But i do get more range with the hole driled into it than without it

 

 

Wish i would of left mine alone now, (Infact mental reminder get a new filter for the season lol)
