    Yes the wiring for connecting the blue light to the battery can be done but it has its ill effects-
    1. If not done with good skill it will interfere with ur important electricals like headlight/passing light/indicators.

    2. After connecting it to the battery in that direct manner if u leave it on for prolonged period then it will weaken the battery (reduce the battery life)

    As far as the mirrors on the fairing go it might look pretty nice and cool if u have split/clip-on handle-bars.
    RIDE IT LIKE YOU STOLE IT!!!

    May look good on fairing and not visor, but may minimize its usefulness unless you make the mirrors reach out to its original position. Fazer mirrors may be a good option. Seen some bikes with ridiculously small mirrors on the fairing that the rider can most probably see only his chest.
