`07 headlight questions
Posted September 28, 2008 - 05:19 PM
just got me a `07 WR450F headlight from ebay. Looks great on my `04 WR250F.
I noticed the following points
- the light itself has a plastic cover. The old ´04 version was glass.
- the light doesn´t carry any homolagtion imprints like CE or E.. and won´t be street legal in germany because of this. The `04 headlight has the imprints.
Does my description fit the ´07 WR headlights as sold in the US or did I buy a copy? Here is the item I bought:
The price at Yamaha Germany is sky high.. Where can I order the Yamaha original in the US?

That headlight looks exactly like my stock 07 WR450 light. Mine has a plastic lens without any markings as well. I can't tell for sure but it looks like the unit you bought is an OEM part.
Thanks. The quality of the headlight and cables is good so OEM seems possible.
But why would Yamaha produce lights that are not street legal in the EU and the US. Which features does the headlight need to be street legal in the US?

My french 2007 wrf 250 doesn't have that little screw on the bottom which the one in the picture does. Mine is road legal number plated and insure if thats any help.
Are there numbers printed in the glass? Like E11 or something...
Is the glass made of real glass or is it just plastic?
