Question 2002-2005 Headlight assembly swap?

Hi All-

First post on the forum after lurking prior to buying my new to me) 02 K1200LT.. i purchased the bike remotely and had it delivered. The headlight lens is cracked pretty bad and needs to be replaced (among other things).

Question: are the later model headlights a direct swap for the 02 single lamp units? I'd rather replace with a newer unit if the hole in the fairing is the same dimension.. Otherwise I have to buy a new unit and upgrade to HID?

Thoughts?

-Jeff

I think it will fit but there is one problem. The newer head lamp assy is a low beam only. The 05 and up had a separate unit mounted underneath for the high beam (where your kidney vents are).
