What kind of Auxiliary Light is this?

I purchased my 2005 1200LT a couple years ago and the previous owner installed these auxiliary lights. There is no indication on the case that would give me a clue as to who the manufacturer is. Now the bulb is blown on one of the lights and I can't figure how to get to it.
Anybody have a clue?
Thank you in advance.

Re: What kind of Auxiliary Light is this?

They are Motolights. Some have purchased replacement bulbs from Home Depot. I believe that they are 35 watt bulbs. On my LT, I replaced the clear bulbs with amber to give a little more attention to other cages.
As for getting the bulb out, you need a special spanner wrench that will un screw the lens cover.

Re: What kind of Auxiliary Light is this?

As Mike said, they're Motolights. Go here for their webpage.

In lieu of a spanner wrench, I've used a pair of wide-mouth needle nose pliers and carefully inserted each prong into opposing dimples around the perimeter of the faceplate. Just a little coercion and praying, the loosened ring came off.

While replacement bulbs (M16, I believe) are available at the big box stores, I couldn't find any here locally that were of the correct reflective spread. They had floods, butt no beams. Used to be, Motolight replaced their bulbs for free, but I'm not sure if that is for original buyer/owner, or even if they still do that. Website should address that.

Re: What kind of Auxiliary Light is this?

Moto Lights now also offers LED replacement bulbs. Longer lasting, whiter, and draw less current. Just remember, Moto Lights are for being seen, not necessarily for seeing.
Just my opinion. I DO have them on all of my bikes......
