Hi guys,

On the look for a UK headlamp lense to swap out for a EU lense if wanted.

PM me cheers.

Regards

Badger

Fitting a BMW spec part to a Buell will make him want to buy a hi-viz Aerostitch now. lOl

Got it , but my mechanic spoke to another one, and they say its replace the whole unit? I dont recall this when I put the EU lense in? Can anyone clarify how you replace just the lense?

Undo the screw, remove the bezel and glass, disconnect the plug on the bulb, unhook the dozen or so springs, take glass out of bezel, replace glass (remember the rubber seal) with location baulking feature in the correct position in the bezel, replace springs one by one, replace plug, hook top of bezel over headlamp housing, insert screw and tighten...

Who’s this mechanic then?

Thanks mate, he's my mechanic, but hasnt worked on my Buell, or any other I think. But he asked advice of another mechanic, but his advice depends on what dress he is wearing on the day! :D
