Headlight Question

PostAuthor: hedgie6 » Fri May 01, 2020 11:35 pm

I have a 91 XV535 that I bought when I lived in England. I brought it back to the USA with me last year and it was wondering if there is a different headlight lens between the 2 countries? The US part number for a '93 model (535 wasn't available in the US for 90-92) lens is 2GV-84321-A0-00. TIA for any help!

Can’t say for certain, other than the part numbers are different, so presumably they are different.

The headlight bucket is the same for a number of years and models from 250 up to 1100. If you are in need of a lens, the US model will fit. I’ll have to research to see if 3,4 and 5 are the same as the EU model.

Evidently the head light bulb is different, but other parts are the same, except perhaps the lens.
