My E came with a dual filament 35W but only one filament is wired, stock. The base looks like a miniature H4 (three tabs but diameter of the bulb base is about the same as an 1157, with a small diameter flat circle with the three tabs on it.)

I'm replacing mine with the lights/fairings from ADVMonster.


I already had a 44 and John sent along a 60 already installed in the fairing.

Ok so it might not be a E. But what kind of bulb is it. I know it sucks.
Here is what it looks like. The bulb is 2 prong, single filament, no hi/low 55w, 12 volt. Funny that it does not say on the bulb.

That photo was taken after this was done (hopefully correctly):

OK what kind of bulb is that. No hi low Motorcycle HID's available for it. This kind of messes with my plans.

Is there another name for this kind of base? Like a b0004 something or other.

A normal H3 will fit (but your earth/ground may have to be done differently. Common as- mostly in driving lights. Available at any auto store... heaps on ebay, but I've never heard of one with Hi/Low.

HID hi'low usually don't look like they'll fit properly and, from the few I've seen, are not a 'direct fit' for these smaller globes.... but they claim to fit.
This came up on ebay AU, look up some in your own area:

For the money, I'd just look at changing the whole light to something like the Trailtech X2. Less stuffing around. http://trailtech.net/light_comparison.html

First time doing an oil change.. and overtorqued the oil drain plug leading to a crack in the threads.

Anyone have any suggestions on patching this up? I was considering JBWeld or similar options unless someone has a better idea.

the off road lens is very small , this means less light with out a good optical lens to amplify the lumens .

look in to 2-4 rows of leds some for low and some for hi beams

I have stumbled across this tidbit. I was going to look at another one tomorrow, but he sold it already.

http://dallas.craigslist.org/ndf/mcy/4048676700.html

I know the obvious questions to ask. What are some non standard things to look at that might be wrong with the 2002's. Ill check airbox, verify carb is not the CV carb and make sure everything looks ok from the outside. Any other information I should know?

Best repair would be welding up the cracks and re-tapping the oil drain bolt thread. Obviously you could also get a new lower case, but that's a lot for money and time. JB... yeah it'll work in a pinch, but I wouldn't ride around like that for any period of time.

If you search around this damage has happened to a few members. The usual cause is reusing the crush washer which leads to over-torquing the bolt.
