Want to buy cb 599 headlight

I know its a long shot but I have been looking for one for a year with no luck. Perhaps someone is ready for a change and wants to sell me theirs? Any ideas where to get one?

Nope. It mounts using the 919 headlight brackets, but its a tight fit width wise. Use some washers between the 919 side brackets and the wire framed stay to shim them outward, then the 599 bucket fits like OEM.

I'm having some trouble with what to order from Eastern Beaver. All I can find is part #H4RK not H4CRK. Also cant find the dual beam diode option. Can anyone point it out for me?

You have to contact the guy and tell him what you want since its a custom order.

Don't have photos, but all I can say is DO IT. Stock 919 headlight is terrible. Light output sucks and the angles between high beam and low beam are too far apart. Aim the low beam up a bit so you can see further down the road and expect your high beam to light up the tree canopy instead of the road. The 599 puts out far better coverage than the 919 stocker on both high and low.

Spend the money for it if you do any sort of riding at night, it's worth it. The Eastern Beaver harness makes it easy, but you can save a bit of coin if you make your own harness with a $7 30-amp automotive relay from Radioshack and some wiring. You can power the low beam directly off the battery and use the stock harness to power the high beam like I do. That way you can have both headlights on at the same time.

I used the stock bulbs last year they work great. This year I upgraded to H11 bulbs and they are even better.

So just to clarify, do you need a new harness if you use the stock 599 bulbs, or do you only need to upgrade the harness for going to H11's?

You gotta buy the conversion kit from Easternbeaver.com. Pvister posted it up earlier in this thread
