    Yes I have a 950 ADV at home, but i am not at home, what i need to know it depth of the main bulb reflector surface to the headlight lens. On a US spec 950 headlight.
    Basically if you have a headlight laying loose, pull the main bulb and drop in a tape measure, what is the distance from the lens to the reflector in the back.

    If not, I will try and measure this up when i have access to my headlight, trying to work on a headlight option.

    Thanks all.

    I've got an unused USA-spec headlight out in the garage, I can try to get a measurement tomorrow if you still need one. Just let me know.

    Working on updating a lighting option, real projector HID or maybe an internal LED setup. Probably been done before but I like to build stuff (and stock output sucks)
    when I start I will update everyone. Thanks for the info, it allows me to start the options layout for building.

    I'm trying to fit two Hella "E55" projectors into mine. Lower one should be ok but upper one is tricky.

    Well, having converted a few vehicles to HID projectors, I am trying to put together a combo hid/LED system to fit the on/off road nature of the bike better. If just an HID system or 2 it would be no real issue, I am trying to come up with something new to challenge my fab/design.

    Concept so far is a 35 w Bi-xenon projector in the bottom mount for on road high/low, and try and make a LED system for the top area that would have more spread for low speed visibility while being less apt to be damaged by vibration or heat, some sort of a 2 stage system so having at least some form of light is possible, probably with a separate switch, maybe flip top to bottom depending on output ability and spread needs for the LED system.

    Like I said, it is a concept at this point, have enough to do to outfit my 950A before I move on to special projects.
