Slim chance, but worth a shot...

Anyone have (or know about) a headlight from the XV/TR Yamahas?

You know, the big 9 inch one?

Thanks.

A similar headlight, size-wise, is the early '80s Suzook GS1150 which was a substantially larger diametre than standard round lamps of the time and of today. I had one on an R1100RS that I'd stripped to the nuddie. It was a flat lens H4 with cool fluting and threw some serious lumens down the road at night. That didn't stop the mobile phone toting Honda Civic driver from heading me off at the junction, however. The night in hospital with concussion was itself illuminating.

A bare bones Oilhead, rumpety rump exhaust w/o catalyst, no airbox and a Techlusion, GS shocks, R1100S clip-ons; fun to ride and 36 kilos (80 lbs) lighter than a stock RS.

I can start you with the headlamp bowl but nothing else. I threw out the headlight and rim because of serious rust. I believe they were also fitted to the XS1100 Midnight Special but mine was attached to the front of a Moto Guzzi 850-T3 California for some reason.

Thanks Dai, I'll keep you in mind. I think the postage may make it a deal killer!
