anyone tried the new RMX 450 headlight on a DRZ 400 yet or know anyone they can ask about to see how hard it is to fit

I think the RMX450Z guard and headlight would be an easy fit to the DRZ and looks good. My only concern would be the price for a genuine unit from Suzuki, not sure there are any aftermarket company's making replica's yet.

I currently have a 91 model RMX 250 unit on mine. I bought for $30 of a guy who had it hanging in his garage since 91, it's like new. The colour is a little darker yellow but it's over a kilo lighter than the standard light and brackets.

I agree the RMX stuff would look great, but didn't bother as I know the price of Suzuki Genuine Parts.

I just ordered my light of e-bay. It is a knock off of the Acerbis (I call it predator) light (with the two halogen lights and LED's on the side. It's yellow with a linted lens. Close to $50AUD posted.

Will give it more of a review when it rocks up/

Didnt realize the standard unit was that heavy at 8kg's. Glad to see there are some options outhere though.

Just another thing to add to the list i suppose. :lol:

Are you guys sure about the 8 kg's? I pulled the headlight off my bike a week or two back thinking it was going to be heavy but there's no way it could have weighed 8 kg's. I also went up the local bike shop to check what they had in stock and they've told me there's no real difference in the weight between the standard one and aftermarket lights. Am I missing something here? I removed both the light and the surround.

The standard unit weighs about 1.5Kg with the metal bracket that holds it on the forks. Most aftermarket units are less than 500g. The metal bracket is a pain to remove, you have to slide the forks out of the triple clamps.

Seems like a pain that you have to drop the forks to get the headlight bracket out.

Do you use the original bracket for aftermarket lights?
