mine has got a stone chip crack in front glass .. not desperate but anyone know of anything around or notices something coming up as a replacement let me know. Maybe removed to make a track bike etc.
Cheers

Have a look on Facebook Aprilia factory or Aprilia Performance and there's Aprilia Tech too.
Just ask in any of them groups you will get something for sure. As much i loathe Facebook,  it ain't a bad place to get parts, good luck. 👍

Hi, already put feelers out on there, Spence from Aprilia Racing site has been most helpful but I'm still searching, a case of being in the right place at the right time I suppose

I'll be needing the later type, I believe the earlier ones are slightly smaller and have a different bulb type fitted, but thanks for bearing me in mind

He's going to take it out and see if there any damage first. 
Can you take a picture of it and post it on here , then i can send it to him to have look . Or when he digs it out i will get him to take pictures and i will post them on here for you to look at. There's one on Facebook €310,  that is ridiculous 😂

Yeah I saw that one, as nice as it is I can't afford/justify spending that on a headlight, the light in your ad is the earlier type, the one going for the 310 euros is the type I'm after

Ok mate as soon he digs it out ,i will get in touch with you. At least i can send him a picture for him to compare it to. 
It is a ridiculous price on Facebook, saying that Aprilia wanted £287 for a plastic gear that goes on a water pump on a Shiver,  my mate built one out of brass 😂

I've even approached a couple of firms who work with polycarbonate and plastics to find out if it's possible to fabricate a lens but unless they have a bulk order to cover the cost of making the tooling items required it's not really feasible

I know where you are, not far from where my son lives.Will no doubt hear if not see one another when the better weather gets here, roll on summer, and you've joined a great forum here, a wealth of knowledge from other owners on here, no matter what questions you may have there will always be someone who can help you out.

All headlights in decent condition seem to be going up in price as will everything that is prone to getting damaged. Get a headlight guard on now because you know if you don't that at some point yours will get damaged.

There's a new one from Italy on ebay here:

yes indeed - they do sound good - I have seen a yellow one around town so a few about.
I was on here 13 years ago - seems a bit out of date with all the facebook groups now .. still some good chat and info so worth hanging on :-)
