Yes Jan, it would likely fit although would need some (rubber) shims/washers to bring the distance between mounting points out from 171 mm to around 185 mm where the OEM distance sits. The LEDperf one (which is sold in several places as a generic is 191mm between mounting points so won't fit.

They also do a classic which is deeper but same distance between mountings.

Thanks Paul! I alway thought the distance is 170 mm (this info is mentioned on some websites, in forums, etc).
So the one from Motodemic is really the only Plug 'n' Play solution so far?

I think this one would fit (it already says it is good for V7) at 180mm plus a few shims....BUT obviously its just an H4 shell....Baak headlamp

According to Gutsibits website (& Officine08 etc) , GRiSO shares same shell as V7 variants, Nevada - here's the view...

It is the depth of the shell that is the killer.
There are some well recommended H4 LED bulbs like Auxito 9003 on ebay
Reviewed here (although he can't seem to adjust the beam height)

but the Auxito bulb needs 2cm more depth of shell behind the reflector than Guzzi allow for.

Also, due to the proximity of brake lines and steering head - i think that the deeper shell would need to be mounted at least 1cm further forward on the brackets

Posted this already in another thread.
My targets were ...
- Did not want to ruin the looks of the GRiSO
- A complete headlight with black metal bucket
- No Chinese fake crap even with fake approvals
- No LED bulb (illegal in Germany)
- A solution which really improves your sight but also gives your bike a better visability

Carbon black Stedi from Australia, E and DOT approved, dip to left suitable for UK, Australia and New Zealand under AU$ 200

Personally I think it suits the GRiSO, looks better and outperforms the original

I have the same spotlights mounted on longer headlight bolts which required less work and still clears the "wings"

They provide good infill lighting and improve visibility

I am just fitting a Stedi LED headlight but that was more expensive than my last Amazon 7" LED - hope it is much better

I just came back from 50 miles of darkness with my new Stedi 7" Iris headlght Stedi 7" Iris linky

Really nice light
Good beam pattern and bright enough to to do up to 50mph on dip on dark country roads. Can still see the road in face of oncoming cars and you can see forever on main.  sunny

£180 delivered in UK
It is pretty much plug and play
There is a black ring around the lens that fits tight into the chrome rim,
(1) you will need 4 W clips Ebay Linky and they are harder than normal to fit as the LED light is thicker at the edge than a tradional headlight.
(2) Need to cut the feed to the pilot light and fit a commector so that it powers the Iris on the Stedi

Possibly the best mod to my Guzzi after the Oberon clutch cylinder - Thumbs Up

Hi Guys,
i´m considering a new headlight for my 1100 GRiSO.
Does anybody know, if the orinigal 2021 V7 Stone Nightpack-Headlamp fits?

I really like the Moto-Guzzi-Emlem in the middle of the lamp, but i dont know, how much work it is, to fit it in.

I'd be very surprised if it fitted but without the dimensions between the pont holes it won't be possible to say. The extensions for the emblem are probably wider than the mounting bucket. If the light is smaller you might get away with it with spacers.

Revival Cycles has a trick LED unit that looks like a traditional 7" glass unit - linky - it may work for some of you. Not stupid $$ either

A great compromise for old style vehicles.

It doesn't appear to have an E stamp so probably wouldn't pass inspection in England, Australia or New Zealand not sure about Europen countries.
DOT is fine for the US and Canada I believe.

The Guzzi Eagle logo could be added on the divider between High and low beam.

Most inspectors over here couldn't give a toss - and I'd be surprised if they looked for the E stamp. I only have to start mine so they can see the headlights/taillights/blinkers working. Usually they just admire the bike and say "don't see many Moto Guzzis on the road".

It would work for me - however it won't fit my Sport nor my B85TT (which already has LED lights all round). However it might be a useful upgrade to the Himalayan. Hmmm?

The Stedi headlight is also E marked (it is small and at the bottom), fits the standard GRiSO rim (and shell) well, so it should fit the v7 shell from what i have read here.

It also works very well and costs 180gbp

The number after the E just means the European country where type approval was granted -
In the case of Stedi E4 means approved in Netherlands

If I was doing this again I'd just go for the LED main H4 bulb & sidelamp bulb approach (same as I did on V50) as it's much cheaper, easier & just as bright.....means I can ride V50 with just parking/running light and still be visible

The side light bulbs on both number plate and headlight are push fit not bayonet like the pics.....arse bought me the bayonet f*ckers Laughing
You want them?

I thought they changed the rules against using leds instead of halogens evidently they changed them in their favour Cool
