Headlights F 800 R & GS

Does anyone know if the headlights from the models in the title are the same ?

Found a replacement for my stolen headlight, but it 's from an F 800 R 2014 and I need to get sure that it fits my 2008 F 800 GS.
Cannot wait till Monday for the dealership to open.

Thank you all !

Got a little bit confused since BMW changed their headlights from CEV to HELLA and the part numbers are mixed up (superseeding, exchangeable retrospectively etc.)

Thing is, does a 2014 HELLA headlight from a 2014 F 800 R fit to a 2008 F 800 GS ? Will it work ?

They look the same, even the cable connectors look the same, but do we know that it will fit for sure ?

According to Max BMW parts fiche, yes.

The 08-13 lights were superseded with the Hella PN, that PN fits the R and the GSA. Transitive. Keep in mind that the US lights are a different PN from the rest of the world due to some unknown spec. I have the US light on my EU spec bike but I doubt I'll get caught.

The '14 lights actually came into use part way through the '13 model year. I have an early '13 with the deeper back covers (i.e. the CEV version), and my buddy who picked up his '13 bike early in '14 as "old stock" has the Hella head light.
So, a mid year change like that says to me that they are exactly the same as far as mounting and connecting to the bike goes.

It's officially tested, the F 800 R headlight fits the F 800 GS.

I received the headlight on Wednesday and installed it on Friday.

It' s the new Hella one and I like it (click)

If you are owning a GS looking for a headlight don't hesitate to search also for F 800 R. Seems that you can find a few new or slightly used Hellas for the R and in a good price as well.

Thanks all for your help !
