Parts for PIAA lights?

Lost one of my lenses...doh! No idea where to start looking for a replacement; Google didn't provide much. Anyone run into this? Just wondering if my set-up is now toast and I have to replace mostly everything.

DISCLAIMER: This author did NOT use ten thumbs on the housing and loosen stuff when replacing a bulb this spring. Not at all. Nope.

Re: Parts for PIAA lights?

I guess your PIAA's are differnt from mine. Mine have the lens/bulb as a complete replacement. I've tried to pry off the lens and just replace the bulb, but they just broke apart.

I keep a spare lens/bulb on hand and I can replace a burnt out one in about 5 minutes. I run them all the time day and night and they last a little over one year. I love'em.

Due to heart health, the Dr says not to ride under 40 degree air temp. Ugh! Now it is harder to get my 18000 miles a year in just in the summer. Guess that stopped my 20 degree rides now.

Re: Parts for PIAA lights?

I received a second hand pair of 1100x's that did not include the mounting "feet" I sent an email to Piaa and they sent me the replacements "free"! Great customer service...

The 1100 does come with the lens glued onto it. I also followed the instructions on this forum and removed the lens and used $9 bulbs from Lowe's HI. Once I found bulbs for $33 I went back to the better PIAAs. I wasn't going to pay $45+ for them.

Re: Parts for PIAA lights?

Thanks...

Looks like they won't ship to Canada (just like some of our own in the classifieds! Different peeve).
However, it shows that parts CAN be had - all I have to do now is find a shop here in Canigeria; I'm sure there are some.

Having said that - I'm getting off my fat (mule) right now and removing the rest of the light, so make sure of model number.

Thanks again!
