L'ASSOCIATION CANADIENNE DE MOTOS ANCIENNES
I've been search for a replacement 6 volt seal beam headlight for my 75 DT250 Yamaha without much success so thought I'd throw this out there just in case someone might have one in working condition or a suggestion for a replacement. It's 5 3/4" diameter, 3 prong plug, 35W/35W High Low beam. Thank you in advance for any assistance.
Im sure you have seen them on Ebay (expensive), I bought sealed beam conversion on amazon that allows you to change the bulb to your needs, and it worked great for me. check it out!
Best Regards Ken
Thanks Ken, I haven't actually but will check it out. Assume there is a selection of bulb types.
If you do not ride at night a 12 volt dual headlight used in cars fits and provides a dim light that is visible, if you are worried about being street legal. Car dual headlights were 5 and 3/4 pairs, only one of them had dual filaments, the other is only used with high beam and has a single filament, so make sure you buy the right one. These are getting rare as well, but still lots of used ones around.
I tried using the automotive lamps, but they would only last a week or so and burn out . I attributed it to vibration and when I used the conversion headlamp no further issues.
I may have what you need but need photo if you have broken bulb or wiring socket.

dumb question, but are you positive it is 5 3/4" across? the reason i ask is because i have 2 "koito" motorcycle use marked 6 volt 30/30w sealed beam bulbs that i measure at just under 5 5/8" using a vernier. i have checked them both for continuity using a meter and both are good. one is obviously used, other is most likely used as well.
