I have the original new 35 watt, and the upgraded 55 watt that were installed and shipped by Motolight, and they are both open face.
I know why not just go through MotoLight? I am asking myself this question also at this point.
But hey, only a couple of bucks, and what the hell get another set so I am not a 35/50 cyclops as I am now.
I ordered a Osram Sylvania #54208 @4 I got Osram Sylvania #58325 @4.
The difference is the original is open face and 12 Degree Spread.
The ones I received are close face and 10 Degree Spread.
Here is the cross:
Cross Reference: GE (14787), Osram Sylvania (54208), Ushio (1000416), Philips (39262-1)
The company (Michell) shipped me six of the Ushio which are open face, exact cross, and stamped made in Germany as the Osram Sylvania are. Told me to keep the 4 they shipped N/C.
They also said the open face are going out, not being manufactured any longer and their book showed the sent bulb as a cross. They were great to talk to and do business with. They are:
My big concern is heat? With the closed front of the bulb, the o-ring, cover light glass of the motolight, I just thought a closed front would be too much heat.
Well if the closed are OK, I have two sets anyone driving by can have.
My MotoLights are 5 years old or better so never a bulb out until now, always in line, never a switch, bike on they are too. Been burning 40,000 miles on the FLTRI and the LT.
Says something about them don't you think?
