No way to replace a cracked lense or damaged reflector, entire new unit only.

The flaking and discoloration of the reflector with HID lights is common, and AFAIK not really due to extra heat (usually 35W vs. the halogen 55W) but rather the higher UV emission of the aftermarket Chinese HID bulbs.
Currently going RTW on a KTM 690 Rally, trip blog:
