Part: Honda CB450 K5 - K7 / CB500T / CB550K / CB550K/F Halogen Headlight Bucket / Lens / Bulb Combo
Why You Need This: Who doesn't want a brighter headlight on their Honda CB450 or CB500T? Increased visibility for you while riding and the easier for you to be seen on the road by others. However, the factory sealed beam headlight on your Honda are awfully dim and replacement bulbs are hard to source. Time to be seen with our 7" headlight bucket, lens, and halogen H4 bulb kit. This new light is significantly brighter than the original and is much easier to change when bulb replacements are necessary. The light is a 35W / 35W high an low beam so it means more light but will not over tax the charging system. The lens is the larger 7" diameter (earlier 450's use the smaller 6.25" headlight) and the replacement bucket looks period correct and works with the factory mounts. If you have not already upgraded the regulator / rectifier on your bike time to do it too. That is the other major electrical upgrade to do on your Honda CB450 or CB500T that gets more efficiency out of the charging system. This kit includes a headlight bucket and trim ring. We also offer just the lens and bulb if that's all you need. It is not an exact replacement but looks period correct.
Installation Tip: Clean your connectors well to remove any corrosion. The back of the lens benefits from the use some small shims (rubber, tape, etc.) to help keep the lens securely in place against the trim ring. This bucket uses M8 mounting bolts (included) which are smaller than the factory bolts, and is metal opposed to the factory plastic.
