Hi y'all - gotta question for ya. On my run last week from KS to Boerne, I noticed one of my fork-mounted Motolights wuz toast. Worried that I might be riding into the Hill Country after dark, I dropped in to a Home Depot on the road and picked up a 35W, 15degree 'spot' beam replacement fixture. Wuzn't 'til I pulled the two-pin toasted fixture that I saw the new one had a lens over the fixture, whereas the old one didn't. And THEN, I noticed that I had picked up a halogen fixture!!! Those halogen thangs generate a lotta heat, and the Motolight unit niche has a glass lens up front - am I gonna singe or fry some wiring with this thang?
I did break the seal on the container, and since I realized all this stuff after dis-assembly, I went ahead and installed the new fixture and buttoned back up the unit - turned it on for a coupla seconds just to check that it functioned. It did, butt wuzn't on long enough to generate any heat. Luckily, I made it home before the sun went down, so didn't need to fire up the Motolights.
So - long story to ax: should I toss the halogen and then contact Tina for a replacement bulb. Or ??? Thanks all.
