Are you wanting to replace the entire headlight assembly or make the stock one better? Whats your budget?

i just put an Acerbis Cyclope on my '00 XR650L supermoto. love it. $100 for the part, $60 for the wiring job. it comes with a clear piece of protective plastic for trail riding, which i will of course never use, but a nice piece nonetheless.

I'd go with the BajaDesigns single 8" halogen....

or for $250 you can get the Ricky Startor dual PIAA setup...

You also have the option of upgrading the stock headlight with a better H4 bulb or even an HID conversion.

replace the whole headlight - $100 to $200.

Get a glass replacement Honda lens and a 100w bulb. That should keep the conversion under $100 unless you factor in a stator rewind and maybe a tougher regulator/rectifier. I did my own stator rewind for about $30 and decided to risk the power on the stock reg/rectifier.

i just went with a 80/100w bulb in the stock headlight, xr650L has a glass lens and 186w alternator factory so its really bright and doesnt effect battery charge much. i havent noticed any dimming even at idle :applause:

Can someone point me in the right direction for doing a stator rewind? $30 isn't a bad price.

I like the Trail Tech round light, but what do you do to seal and protect the underside of the speedometer and indicator lights?
