There aren't 16 threaded studs anywhere on it, what do you need? You would absolutely have to relay a 100 watt headlight, 2 relays, 1 for high and 1 for low.

How do you know they are worn? They are rounded on the end originally. There are only 8 of them per engine BTW.

looked worn? compared to a new one? how many miles? did u measure them to spec in tech manual? doubt very much they are worn, these engines put a lot of oil into the camshaft/rocker area.




100w bulb yes relays as mentioned, but why with the LED bulbs out there today? less work, wiring, relays, etc. and much better light output compared to a 100w, plus less drain on the stator.

one of the better LED bulbs to use, https://www.cyclopsadventuresports.com/
