headlight lens

My headlight is fogged over pretty bad. Looking to replace the lens. Do I have to get this from Kawi ?

Over time the inside gets cloudy, no need to replace. Remove the bulb an pour in some glass cleaner, ammonia or other cleaner and let set for 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with hot water and let dry overnight or put in oven @150* for 30 minutes and let cool.
