A word of warning on bulbs .

I fitted one recently and it started to burn lamp .

When i changed it for a new one i noticed that the glass globe can be  larger or smaller depending on manufacturer  large one sits too close to the reflector and was overheating it .


 Good warning! I recently bought a pack of 45/40W bulbs as they had the same fitment as the white OEs and thought they might serve as an upgrade. The fitting was correct but no way would the glass part of the bulb fit through the hole disbelief

Anyone know what they might fit so I can move them on?????

Anyone got any idea what type of headlight bulb my 1993 TTR 250 OE should have please?

The MH6SB 12V35/36.5W stamped in it seem to mean nothing.

 

Cheers

Can the headlight and plastic surround (number board?) from the newer blue bikes be used in the older white open enduro models? Is it a straight swap or are the brackets different? If so are they easily available or easily made? I notice Brian has brand new blue ones for sale!

Hi Ken

My recollection is that although the blue UK surrounds fit the older TTRs they foul the digital speedo. That's why I fitted the blue US version of the white surround to my project bike - see here and scroll down to see the US surround.

Not to worry Brian, I'll keep things simple and put it back standard!
Had daughter's partner check forks and rim for straightness all seems ok so I will contact you shortly for the bits I need.

Just looked up the white original headlight surround (part #4GY-84311-00) and they are still available to back order but at £61.49 inc. VAT .

I too had a b3 bulb fitted to mine and it blew recently so i removed it only
to find that the globe of the bulb had started to melt the reflector part
of the lamp as per what Comeragh had experienced with his.

I am pretty sure there isn't a Lucas equivalent.

Cheaper option here
