Touratech could get DSY to make these for them - then they'd paint them yellow - call them a hard part - and charge about 45 bucks a pop!

What's amazing is...

What's amazing is so many people suffer from this design flaw and they tolerate third party solutions. Sure it's the right fix vs a $500 plus installation bill, but I personally prefer not to have to jury rig fix a design flaw.

IMO, BMW should be recalling / warranty repairing anyone with this issue.

I do thank BMW for warranty fixing mine. Perhaps they are now starting to offer this when it's asked for. Check with your BMW dealer.

I don't ride a lot in the dark here in TX, too many forest rats willing to shorten you ride. Lights on my motos are mainly for me to be seen. The standard H7 and a pair of H3 55w aux lights do this job nicely, I carry a spare of each.

I have in a pinch, pulled my high beam out and stuck it in the low beam bucket until I could get to a replacement.

Why not just flip on the highbeam switch?
