    Default Head Lights - Are these a standard automotive bulb?

    I have a 2019 Spyder RT. I just had a head light bulb burn out. Are these a standard automotive bulb? I know how to get get the bulbs out I just would like to have a replacement before I tear it apart. Where can I purchase a bulb?

    You would be well served to replace both of them at the same time. Once one goes the clock is ticking fast on the second one.

    Been there done that. Sometimes I think BURP designed and built their spyder around a headlight bulb.

    If you don't already have LED headlight bulbs, now is a good time to put that in. You have to remove panels anyway.

    ...yours now are Halogens .... if you stick with them they have versions of your size designated as Motorcycle .... they are more shock resistant .... you could also think Sylvania Super Brites .... good lucl ... Mike

    Another +1 for LED headlights.

    Another vote +2, I put in Tricled 360 LEDs which are much brighter!

    I went an looked at the tric led led light bulbs. Those are pricey bulbs with only a 1 yr warranty - that I could find. I try not to ride at night. When it comes time to replace my headlight bulbs I'l stick to Halogen bulbs, for motorcycles. Worked good in the motorcycles I had, should work good in my Spyder. JMO

    Night time riding is not the complete picture. LEDs make you much more visible during day light hours.

    Something like 77% of bike/car crashes are caused by cages turning left in the bike's path. I want as much attention getting light on the front of my Spyder as I can get. There are 8 LEDs; 2 fender/marker lights, 2 headlights (Slingmods Tricled), 2 fog/DRL lights (also Slingmods), and 2 "can you see me now 3,000 lumen road lights mounted on the insides of the front fenders. Decades of adding extra (and bright) lights on the front of bikes has avoided me getting hit a few times. Don't trust to luck Gerald, it's a jungle out there and you want to survive it. BTW, I do very little to none night riding too.

    A few years back, I installed LED bulbs (from a company recommended here). Six rides later, one of the bulbs died. So I reinstalled the original bulbs. I'd had similar lousy results with various aftermarket bulbs with my BMW RT, so I figured the headlight gods were tapping me on the shoulder to remind me of their presence.
