    Lightbulb 2015 FZ09 head lights swap?

    I have a 2015 FZ09. I was wondering if I can swap out the 2015 headlight assembly to the 2017 headlight assembly?

    it can be done. the wiring is different. @DutchRider did it to his 2015. it's really expensive unless you can find it used.

    I'd wait and see what the 2018 headlight is like before committing to the notoriously bad 2017 headlight (the beam pattern makes it super sketchy in corners)

    If you look closely at the pics of the mt09SP the headlight is different again next year (2 LEDs not 4) so obviously Yamaha have identified there was an issue with this years and hopefully next years will be much better.

    You could probably find someone with a 2017 that can't stand how bad their headlight is and would be willing to trade with you.

    If you read the headlight description under the feature page for the 2017 vs 2018, it is exactly the same:

    "the slanting dual headlights are equipped with four LED bulbs".

    So no changes on the headlight from what is stated on the website

    Same problem. Anything that uses a projector lense with a cutoff on the beam will have this problem.

    Not sure if you can mount an FZ-10 Headlight on an FZ-09???

    The FZ-10 headlight is not mounted on the forks, it is mounted off the fuel tank, fake intake scoop bodywork.
