(V7 III STONE NIGHT PACK)
I have no idea how much it will cost ...couldn´t find a part number.

Has anyone found a part number and price?  Indicators are LED too?

Just got the info from a dealer that the Stone Night Pack will be available from end of May or beginning of June.
After this the partslist should be available.

From all what I have read so far, (expensive) JW Speaker headlights are the only ones which also deliver better driving light at night. All other tested brands create dark areas /spots which means the driving light is worse than a H4 stock unit.

My personal conclusion is that JW speaker is the way to go ... but not for me at the moment because they look so fugly. affraid

OK, I aligned it and went out on dark roads to test. Here is my verdict:

THE GOOD:
Super bright and white, great visibility, and the high beam makes far away signs glow incredibly bright and show their markings very clearly. Switching high beam on and off is instant and pronounced. Using the flash button with that kind of instant-on/off would be a very effective attention-getter. I was able to navigate an unlit winding road under ink-black moonless skies with relative confidence.

THE BAD (AND THE UGLY):
There is a pronounced pattern in the low-beam, with highly visible horizontal dark bands. Not something that would detract from visibility, but something you really need to get used to. The high beam is more uniform, but still has some brighter areas. So in general the uniformity is not good.

Overall, it's a great improvement to the stock unit even though it has some weird banding issues to get used to. Although I didn't do a true A/B test by riding the same roads in same conditions with both lights, I am pretty sure I was riding with a lot more confidence in the dark than I had before. I always found the stock lighting to be lacking and inadequate, and with this I could see what I needed to.

So there is my biased, unscientific review. If you like the looks of this headlight and can handle the installation and don't value beam uniformity above all else, it's a good one! But I'll bet those über-pricey J.W. Speaker jobbies make a nicer looking beam on the road...


Thinking about mounting one of these over the winter.

Any further opinions/insights on the performance of this unit?

Bought my GRiSO with both lens and rim missing from a prang.
Also a broken mounting part in the shell. So useless.

Replaced the whole unit with this. It's a straight fit.
They do various black/chrome units.

This lens only has high/low beam no parking light.

Then changed the lens to an LED

All connectors go straight on with Guzzi connections apart from the parking light which is an easy mod.

The light is good with an excellent beam. Only have a photo with the parking light on. Will take some more photos.

Looks great Damo, with the bezel close to the oem position in relation to the screen. Thanks for the info on the bucket to fit the original bracket.
Now, to order one so I can fit my Stedi Iris LED.

I fitted the LED lens with the 'w' clips that came with the headlight. Good tight fit! there's plenty of them.

I made my headlight shell to fit a DOT marked LED fitting for my V11. Seems to work well. I'll get around to doing the GRiSO one day as well.

I've done 4 of those light fittings now..
I know why they invented cnc machines!
That's about 10hrs of machining

Great!... and when can we buy this here? Very Happy

I prefer the looks of the Truck-Lite:

This is the same idea - just add a ring without a bucket.

Can we get a photo when you have mounted your headlight?

You can buy them from purpose built moto.
He used my design and got them cnc'd.
Here's a 5 3/4 on my Ducati and 7inch on my V11
