    Hi fellow Yamaha owners,

    Been scouring the net for info on what size the stock headlight is on the old 1200 VMax but I haven't been able to find anything.

    Reason I'm asking is because I'm thinking about doing a headlight swap on my Yamaha MT-01 and I've found a really sleek and cool looking fairing that is originally intended to go on the old VMax.

    Fairing in question: http://japan.webike.net/products/4465671.html

    Now before I bite the bullet and buy this fairing I'd like to make sure the headlight I had in mind would actually fit it.

    So, is the stock headlight a 6½" or a 7" headlight? Or maybe it's smaller?

    Any help would be much appreciated.


    Regards,

    Viktor

    Does anyone have an forsure answer on this? I believe it's 5.75", I could be wrong though. Hopefully one of the knowledgeable guys will chime in on it. Also, does anyone have a fairing like this?

    Is tha the bucket opening or measurement including the bucket? I really like the Harley day maker light and I found one on eBay. It's a 5.75" so will that work?

    I would think the surround will close to that number.

    The headlight bucket bezel opening into which the lens w/its chrome retaining ring fits is 5-3/4". Measuring the fluted raised portion of the lens, it is close-to 5-1/4" but that is not the width of the lens, which is wider. The chrome ring which holds the fluted lens is fractionally-less than the 5-3/4" of the headlight bucket bezel's inside dia. The O.A. dia of the bucket bezel is ~6-3/4".

    If you're planning to use a cowl which advertises it's a 7" opening, that gives 1/8" on either side for clearance, and there is probably some type of whiplace or rubber gasket trim around the inner opening where your headlight bucket would fit.
