    Headlight housing hot

    After a short 10 min ride today i touched the headlight housing and noticed it was super hot, was just wondering if that is normal or something electrical i should be worrying about?

    Thanks for help!

    Which bike?
    Stock or aftermarket light?
    metal or plastic shell?
    How hot was and time of the day?
    Where?

    A black plastic shell at noon in Arizona on a 110 degree day will get warm, maybe even hot....."super hot" is problematic...

    Wonder if it is something easy such as wrong bulb and hopefully not some wire problem

    Actually the metal headlight shell gets pretty warm, especially if there's an H4 55/60w bulb.
