Question PIAA Lens Replacement?

Anyone know of a good place to get a lens replacement? It looks like a rock hit one. I bought the bike used (2000 model) and don't know the model #. They are ion yellow with black housings. There are vertical slots in the back of the housing and mounted in the cowling under the head light.

Also, several times I have found one or the other lights aimed up into the sky. Is it possible for the fender to hit the housing when the wheel is turned to lock and you bounce through a narrow drain? I am wondering if the panalever compression is banging the fender into it. Any ideas?

Thanks.

Question Light Model ?

Need to know more about light, in order to help figure out what you have ?

Square body ? round body ? are lens and bulb a sealed unit ?

How is light mounted to your bike ? Directly to inner plastic panel ?, or to a light bracket that is mounted directly to the inner plastic panel ?

If you have seperate light brackets that the lights are mounted to, does the right side bracket have Ezy Mount stamped in the metal ?

Here's what I have..

It looks like metal light brackets are mounted to the tupperware. I did not remove the right bracket to see if it was one of yours or not and I did not dismantle the light to see if the bulb is sealed in addtion to the lens.

I hope the pictures will provide the information you need.
