Is anyone using Diamond Cut headlight lense that fits?

I've got a chipped OEM headlight lense and want to go with a diamond cut. I know Dianna is using one but had to change her bucket to fit it. Have any of you installed one that fit without modification? If so, where did you get it and what model number etc.? Thanks!

From what I understand, the Vulcan headlight bucket is to shallow, and thus that is the reason Dianna changed buckets. I have not heard of anyone intalling the aforementioned headlight without doing this, as they require a deeper bucket.

Figures. I wonder if there are any buckets that would match our brackets from other bikes? I guess I'll have to carry my tape measure around with me when I'm sniffing on bikes.

I had switched to a Suzuki bucket.. ummm one of the 650 models I think. That might help narrow down your search a bit. Side mount brackets of course..

Is it a black plastic bucket with chrome ring? That's what my son's sv650 has on it. The sides are wider than my mounts so I guess I'd have to switch mounts too. Maybe I should stick with the OEM. It does put out pretty good light. Did you notice a nice difference with the diamond cut lense as far as light output?
