Those are extremely affordable! Even a used OEM unit would cost more than that. Good find.

So that should fit in the original headlight mounts no problem?

The price on the Delkevic unit is great, and makes it look like an attractive alternative to a stock unit.

Two obvious cautions:

(1) hard to determine the exact fit of that shell to the bike's mounting hardware until the unit is in your hands. I think you could find a way to make it fit even if it is not an exact replacement.

(2) the stock headlight shell holds a lot of wires and connectors. The Delkevic item may or may not have a large enough interior to house them all. If the interior is small, you may have to go to Plan B and relocate some of the wiring to underneath the gas tank.

I'd be willing to bet it would work, as long as I don't get blamed if it doesn't!

It fits between the brackets with the gauges on. I haven't tried cramming the wires into the bucket yet, but I did notice that the hole for the wiring is on the left side of the bucket, which may make things fun.

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

Yep, had to see if anyone else had tried it. Looks damn close to the OEM light!

it was really easy to install the wiring into the bucket. The only 'gotchas' are the lack of blinker connectors and the gauge harness, though I don't see it being a real problem for anyone. It looks as good as the OEM and is easier to install, not bad for $80!

I've been thinking about getting this for the bikes: Truck Lite 27270C 7" Round LED Headlamp Complex Reflector Trucklite Trucklight | eBay

They're made by truck-lite for Wranglers, but the light's the same size and it fits both the Ducati (using an adapter ring) and the 919 (direct fit). I've heard some good things about them, and the cost is far less on ebay than what I've seen on both the jeep sites and the bike shop sites. Figured it might be a nice way to improve my viz without having to go through the rigmarole of getting an HID, then ballast, then a projector, then getting it all to fit in the bucket...

Yeah, so I didn't search because I'm not looking for suggestions on a light, I've already found one, I was just throwing it out there since the one I found looks to fit, and is a few hundred dollars cheaper than the one everyone else bought.

Riiight...

If you had searched, you would of found what light was used which was KNOWN to work and compare dimensions to see if the one you found would work.

But hey, its your money and time.

Damn, I must've missed the thread that explained it all. So tell me, how long have you been on your hormone regimen? I presume that's why you're acting like a big girl who just found some sand jammed way up her brand new cooch.

Or maybe you just need a snickers.



Next time, why not read the original post first, where you can see that I found the part on a website that specifies it as fitting my bike (which is different than yours!) and the 919.

Now, be a dear and either go eat a snickers or grab a bottle of the ol' Massengil and get that crusty stuff out yer crotch.
