Looking for a replacement now, thinking of a lynx fairing with built in hid support. If anyone has a factory glass reflector, please PM me. I did find a replacement made in italy for 55 $ online, but unsure of the thickness on reflector coating.

After riding KTMs for so many years I must say I'm REALLY impressed by the "stock" WR250R headlight......it's actually pretty darn good........my 02 KTM 520EXC offers the equivalent of a match on low beam and Bic lighter on high beam .......it's pretty useless..........and you really can't upgrade the stock headlight on the KTM without also upgrading the stator......yet another positive for the little bike
