Didn't realize that after yet another crash on 2001 WR (looking older by the ride) my headlight lense is broken but still working.
Any sugestions??

If you're asking for advice on how to fix it, I can't help you there. But if you'd like to prevent it from happening again...Last year I put a rock guard over my front headlight and so far, no broken lens. I drilled 4 holes into the plastic shroud around the light and attached it with four zip ties.

Here's the only picture I have of it (sorry for the grainyness):

Mike, if you are not riding at night take it off. I was concerned that I would trash mine so I took it off and replaced the whole thing with a number plate. I have noticed in the bike mags lately though that guys like Scott Summers and others leave the assembly but remove the bulb. Good luck! Paul

I am a dualsporter, so I need the headlight. It still works. Has anyone tried to replace theirs with an automotive one?

Thanks for the tip Marty, but I can't do it! :)

I like the screen...

1 - make your protective lens cover
2 - slap on the Acerbis dual halogen
setup, with those 2, tiny little 35w
3 - take the light off
