OK guys, I have an '01 R6 that the previous owner banged into his mailbox, so I am left with a gaping hole in the starboard headlight lens. Everything else is fine except the bloody lens.

I don't really want to shell out $150-175 for a whole new assembly, I just want to replace the lens. I have a piece of plastic taped over the headlight now so the bulb won't get broken.

Anyone have a junk headlight from a 99-02 r6 I could buy cheap and anyone have suggestions on how to remove the old lens without tearing up the housing???

Thx

i'm in a similar predicament except mine is an 05. the PO laid it down around a corner and broke the headlight lense on one side. I don't want to replace the whole headlight because this one was wired by highbimmin's mod (dual low beams, dual high beams just like a car) which i really enjoy having

anybody know how to replace the glass part if possible?

Look for a tutorial on installing the Angel Eye lights. There is a section that involves removing the clear lexan parts by putting them in the oven for a few minutes. Aparently once the heat sensitive seal is warmed up they pop right off. Hope that helps some.

So I bought a new headlight assembly and I have the old one available to anyone looking to replace their LEFT side headlight lens. Send me a message if you're interested and we'll negotiate.
