5.75” headlamp change of design


Recommended Posts

Previously the headlamp securing screw was at the top. Now there are two at about 4 and 8 o'clock so they don't match if you replace one. Also, the screw closest to the nose cone can't be accessed even with a stubby screwdriver without loosening whole headlamp and turning it. Nightmare if you have to change a bulb on the road - in fact you would be lucky not to lose a screw as they are underneath. The quality is still poor with the glass not fitting properly into the frame. All in all a step backwards I would say.

Thank you. I hadn't seen the previous info. To confirm, both screws do need removing and access is by lifting the bottom out first as they hook over at the top. I decided not to fit the screw closest to the nose cone and used a drop of low strength Locktite on the other one. I will keep the unused screw in the boot as a spare as they tend to fall on the floor when removed.
