While you’re already doing the work, why not upgrade to an LED? The sealed beam lamp on these bikes is one of the biggest bears on the weak charging system - an LED gets you near breaking even at idle. I did my front end for about $80 all said and done, with the following parts:
It can be done, but it involves carefully cutting the sealed beam glass and putting in an H4 socket, which I think would still be a major improvement over the sealed beam (can ya tell I have a special hatred for those old Stanley units? ). Trying to keep it original?
