Head Light Replacement Lense for 2010 F 650 GS

Has anyone tried getting glass cut for a headlight lense? I phoned for a new one and I need to buy the whole assembly for $628.00. Any one have any Ideas?

I've heard of getting some Lexan or Plexiglass cut and put in. No need to get the whole assembly. I'm too lazy to search and will leave that up to you.

Did this replacement have anything to do with your riding style.

An ADV forum geek once said, get these things that are a must for your F650GS or F800GS: Skid plate, Crash bars, Bark Busters, Radiator protection and of course the light guard. This man sounds very wise, and must be very good with the women.

Let's say I had a F800GS and my wife rode a F650GS, and she broke her headlight, first of all I would be proud of her for kicking some ass on the trail, second I would take my headlight assembly off and swap it out with hers.....ya that's what I'd do.

I replaced my broken one with a piece of Lexan.
Got enough Lexan to do 3 of 'em for 10bux. Cut the Lexan with a jigsaw (sabresaw to the US guys?) with a fine metal blade.
Broke out all the glass and glued the Lexan in with Sikaflex, works like a charm, no problems over 20k km.
No pics I'm afraid, but some masking tape keeps it all neat and from 2 ft away you can't tell the difference.
I used Sika to glue the lexan in, then again to fill the space between the trim ring and the Lexan.
Oh, and no headlight protector needed as you won't break the sucker again
