Okay. So here is my first question for everyone. I need to get a replacement headlight (read: spare) for my bike. Neither the owner manual or the shop manual give a part number for the headlight, nor does it give any other identifying information. The shop manual calls for a headlight that is a 60W/55W (high/low beam). The current lamp in it is a Stanley, but there are no identifying markings on it. So, this leads to two questions:
1) Anyone have an idea as to a standard, comparable, OEM-similar replacement?
2) Any suggestions (other than LED conversion) as to a brighter bulb without overloading the electrical system and/or having to do wiring work to accept a higher wattage?
Thanks, all, and safe riding!
