Headlight Glass/Lens Shattered!

Was out riding today enjoying a rare sunny day in Nov on my recently acquired 2006 Brutale 910. Came to halt at the traffic light, suddenly head some glass shattering on the road. Guess what it was a headlight lens from my bike just broke to pieces. Shock and helpless came back home (low beam bulb blew also) - however trying to figure out if there was a recall on this. My bike is out of warranty at this point. Reading couple of threads here and it appears to be a know issue. Any suggestions guys? Can the dealer help? Also if I were to spend $$$ out of own pocket I like to upgrade to the new headlight with projector and HID. Also happen to come across a aftermarket conversion kit - wonder if anyone has tried this unit - feedback would be welcomed!

Forget eMoto....yes, you can put the newer Brutale headlight on your bike...can't remember who did it, but there is a thread in here somewhere. Wiring connector is the only problem area, and can be overcome.

Don't expect any help from MV...I think CAG may have what you need if you want the original part.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

The glass ain't cheap but I got one. Replaced my entire headlight w HID installed in a carbon fiber housing. A fun way to spend several hundred $. So anyway, I have a full intact headlight assembly. Mine broke to, MV replaced it no questions asked.

There are 2 on eBay, not for your bike though but still at a healthy 800+. CAG told me awhile back he had the glass but yeah uber expensive, several hundred. I'll under-sell anybody because I only got 1 and will just spend it on the bike anyway and I don't really care. I think I might play "make-an-offer".
