Has anyone put a larger headlight from say a cb650 on their rebel or something similar? I have an 85 250 and am wanting something larger with a different look. Thanks!

Be aware of the extra current that the replacement will most likely draw and decide with that in mind. Your stock headlight is only 35/36W. I went with Jack's H4. Many here recommend a relay but I stuck with the stock circuitry and have been fine.

Thanks, but I'm not really looking to do an HID conversion just really want a different housing and setup.

Buickguy, I am assuming that caddy is from a cb of sorts? Also is it a "plug-n-play" application?

I am guessing that this is a cb headlight?

No I believe Buickguy's headlight is an aftermarket light that he had to do minor alterations to for it to mount on his Rebel.

There are a ton of aftermarket headlights out there that will work on your Rebel. Check out Niche Cycle Supply, they have a good selection of headlights reasonably priced. I bought mine there.
