Switching over from sealed beam

So the sealed beam blew out on my lazer sport 50 and treats doesn't sell em. I'm thinking about switch over to the kind with the removable bulb like this (yeah I know they're out)

Should any 4" light fit? Are they pretty much universal? Would I be able to run a brighter bulb than stock with the stock electrical system? I do a lot of night riding and the stock headlight really blows, even for a moped. (edited)

Re: Switching over from sealed beam

You can get those sealed beams locally for cheap. Anyway the part you posted would probably work. If you have a metal backed sealed beam you could probably use the existing housing and glass and modify it to take the bulb socket of your choice.

This will work and takes regular bulb too. . https://www.treatland.tv/moped-chrome-black-headlight-mopeds-p/best-headlight-in-the-land.htm . Or if you had that 171 bulb you wanted do this to your old one. . http://www.mopedarmy.com/wiki/CEV_%27sealed_beam%27_headlight_upgrade

$11 tractor bulb from a lighting supply.

Re: Switching over from sealed beam

There should be a part # on the back of your current lamp, try Sears, they used to carry sealed beam lamps for garden tractors, both 6v & 12v they were not expensive.

Re: Switching over from sealed beam

This light fits in a moped bucket. You have to glue it in cause the little flange is thicker and the wire clips won't fit, but then you get halogen bulbs that are replaceable. And it's like 9$ and usually on sale.

Re: Switching over from sealed beam

Thanks for the replies. I haven't been able to find anything locally. I don't want to swap out the whole light because I want to keep the original bucket and ring. I'd take another sealed beam if I could find it but ideally I'd like one where I can just swap out the bulb because I eventually plan on going to 12v. It would have been nice if my old bulb was metal backed because I'd just modify it but of course it's the all glass kind.

take a drive out to the country, any farm & fleet type store will have em for tractors. Might be able to find a bulb that will fit at NAPA, but it will be 12v.

Re: Switching over from sealed beam

Check old hardware stores as well....no dice @ Sears? Used to get 6v there back in the day.

Re: Switching over from sealed beam

12v landscaping lights par36, 4.5 inch is a direct fit for stock sealed beam headlights.

*halogen, sealed beam

*single bulb only

*fog beam, glass lens

*cheap, like $7 complete.

Re: Switching over from sealed beam

you can get a 6v par36 sealed beam online, just get a flood beam.

Re: Switching over from sealed beam

This one takes bulbs and take it out of this bucket and it will fit in yours and switch it to 12v later. https://www.treatland.tv/moped-chrome-black-headlight-mopeds-p/best-headlight-in-the-land.htm . .If you still want a 6v 15w/15w(hi/lo) sealed beam this will fit. . https://www.treatland.tv/original-OEM-honda-hobbit-sealed-headlight-LAMP-p/oem-honda-head-light-lens.htm . Wal-Mart has 6v utility lights in automotive. (edited)

Re: Switching over from sealed beam

Your 6v system will light up a 12v bulb no problem. It will be just as bright. In fact your. 6v system puts out between 4 to 15v depending on rpm. I have the harbor freight set up on a stock magnum and it's nice and bright.
