You may not think of headlights as safety features, but on BMW motorcycles, they most certainly are. That's because they not only improve visibility in low light and at night, but also let other drivers (and riders) know where you are, and how far away. There's plenty to consider when buying them online. Luckily, our parts store has the info you need to make the best possible purchasing decision.
Motorcycle Headlights Buying Guide
How Many and What Types are Available?
There are three, generally: halogen, Xenon, and LED.
These are relatively easy to change and, when it's time to order new ones, fairly inexpensive. However, you may have to replace them more frequently than other kinds.
Also called high-intensity discharge, HID for short, these are not only brighter than your average headlamp, but they also put out less heat and last longer than other types. They can be a little more expensive, though. Plus, you may need a BMW technician's help when it's time to fix one or put a new one in.
These are both exceptionally energy-efficient and much longer-lasting, though they may be a little costlier to change and they're not as common as other kinds.
When to Replace Them
No headlight is permanent, unfortunately; you'll have to swap out the old for the new eventually. Do so when it weakens or goes out, or when its electronics die. That can be as little as every couple years, but it depends on the type.
What Kind Your BMW Motorcycle Needs
This depends on both what it came with and what it's compatible with. Your owner's manual should have more info on the subject. When it's time to get new ones, however, be sure to order genuine OEM. The headlights BMW produces are guaranteed to fit your model, after all. You can buy them right here.
