    08 suzuki s83: Just bought JW Speaker 8630 (HEADLIGHT) and doesn't fit... HELP!

    Hi everyone,

    I ride a s83 and needed/wanted a brighter LED headlight so i ended up buying a JW Speaker 8630 for an amazing price.

    So I took apart my headlight, ready to install and boom, it doesn't fit. I dont know if it's for all suzuki's but s83 have this very custom mounting ring that only works for a very specific headlight.

    Long story short, I tried absolutely everything and it seems that the best solution for this is for me to get another housing/bucket that fits JW speaker 8630 easily and drill holes on the bottom of the housing to fit my current bike. Now that arises a new problem: Which headlight housings fit JW Speaker 8630 easily?

    Preferably ones that are bottom mounted so that I can hide the holes.

    I am open to ANY suggestions! Much appreciated!

    Well THIS is really confusing.

    A headlight called "speaker"......but it's true.

    I suggest that you contact the company that makes the light and see if they can help.

    Otherwise, look for a good independent bike shop in your area.

    Bottom line: It just might not work out.
    Don't believe everything that you think.
