Headlight

Post by Shags » Sat Jun 20, 2020 5:07 am

I've got a triumph Bonneville and have redesigned the headlight cluster. A mate of mine has a triumph speed triple 1995 and wants to know if the headlight cluster will fit on the speed triple? Anyone know?

I'm afraid not. This forum is great but for such specific questions a triumph specific forum maybe a better bet.

Hmmm....these don't need relays. We had a scooter club used to meet at a local pub for rallies. I took a look at a few and they seem to have a really clever way of powering the extra lights that doesn't involve any wiring at all. No idea how they do it but not a single light ever had a wire running to it.

In terms of the op's question, yes it can be done, but you'd need to do some fabrication. Has he actually offered the Bonny lights up to his bike's front end or compared the two sets side by side on a workbench?
