Got held up the other day and ended up riding home in the dark. Low beam is OK, but the high beam sucks. I live in the bush, so there are no shortage of kangaroos, wombats and feral deer, all of which become very expensive if you don't see them

Has anyone upgraded the globe? Anyone found any auxiliary lighting that fits up neatly?

Bumping this thread because I’m looking for a used 950 headlight. Going to look into retrofitting a projector into the housing, which will greatly improve visibility.

I found one eBay for $750… way overpriced.

I’ve reached out to Cyclops in Kent WA to see if they have an option. I haven’t looked at the rear of the housing to see if there would be clearance for their heat exchanger/fan assembly.

Not too familiar with them, got a website?

The thought for me was to get a headlight, pull it open and throw in a TheRetrofitSource single projector. But as you said, the only headlight for sale is $750... Absolutely crazy.

Cyclops said the HM950 is on the fitment list. So I bought one, will try it and let you know.

Bad news--no way to get the H4 connector between the rear housing (black plastic) and the reflector.

In order for this retrofit to work, I'll need to sacrafice the $7 plastic H4 cover (p/n 39040351A) and hack up a deeper cup to fit the driver and h4 connector:

It's entirely possible the connetor and driver will fit in the void space between the refletor and black plastic, but i'd need to pull the tabs on the headlight housing to get into it. I'm not interested in that. I've had bad experience cracking those kind of tabs on clear plastic!

Here's what a deeper cup looks like on the F800GS with the same bulbs:

I'll need to cut a hole in the rear cap, pass the barrel connector through, silicone it up and reinstall.
