Motorcycle Headlight Assemblies

Nobody wants to ride in the dark if they don't have to; it's also illegal to run without lights. Luckily, motorcycle headlight assemblies are relatively easy to repair and replace so you can be back on the road quickly no matter what happens to your headlight. With both visibility and safety on the line, it's important to make sure your lights are good.

Choosing Bulbs

The most common issue is a burnt out headlight. The easiest way to deal with it is to just change the bulb and be on your way. While it's easy to find the right motorcycle light bulbs, LEDs, and HIDs, it's important to make sure that the new bulb is right for your motorcycle. No matter what your vehicle, you cannot add a bulb type that hasn't been certified for use on the road. As long as you stick to original equipment or authorised replacements, it should be no problem.

Lighting Assemblies

You don't just need headlights; you also need indicators. Changing motorcycle indicator assemblies isn't hard, but it does require attention to detail. Just as with headlights though, it's important to remember the legalities if you intend to ride the bike on the street. Safety matters, and the best way to ensure that is to ensure that all your bike lighting is approved and that includes your motorcycle lighting indicators.

Light Changing Basics

The basics of changing your motorcycle headlight are simple. Once you know you have the right bulb or assembly, all you have to do is open up the existing assembly and make the change. If you have a sealed beam, be careful when you remove the retaining ring. The bulb can fall out and damage your front fender if you are not careful. Luckily, a little attention to detail is all you need to get it right. When in doubt, protect your fender with tape.

Halogen Bulbs

Halogen bulbs have replaced sealed beams in a lot of vehicles and motorcycles are no exception. Replacing halogen bulbs is easy, but one thing you have to remember is that you cannot touch the new halogen bulb with your bare hands as it might burn out.
