Having kept my headlight together for the last 2 years it has finally given up the ghost and gone to plastic headlight bucket heaven

Can anyone tell me of a good fter market chrome ( metal ) one that will fit, the price of the guzzi one made me laugh then cry alot

Also is it a standard 7 inch fitting ?

Thanks Mike

Would be interested in that, too. I paid c.120USD for #2. Sad

Happily, that one is still fine, especially as the Marlin screen mounts fit perfectly, unlike the OEM screen. Yes, I am still urinated off.

Have you guys investigated into how much the one on a current Bonneville would cost, and if it's metal?
I go that route if those two questions can be answered positively...

Go LED. They're lighter and brighter!

I know that is the best option, but just not keen on the look TBH also very rarely ride the bike after dark

Try Af1 in the US they had original plastic buckets recently which were quite cheap if that is all you need

But to my eye, they don't project or spill... Conspicuous, but not illuminating.

My LED works fine & dandy. Nice spread and good penetration.

I'm still looking for a metal bucket that fits, but in the meantime I'm using the plastic bucket from a Nevada headlight - Nevada stuff is cheaper than GRiSO & V7 bits, and they are prom an earlier production run - seem to be a tad stronger. Runs up & down Thunderbolts next weekend may test that theory.

Interesting.

Looking forward to "data."

Beatle, does your Jeep light have it's own bucket or did you fit it in the original housing?

No bucket. The rear of the light has two mounting holes. I MacGyvered some adjustable adapters to connect to the stock headlight bracket.
