2000 foreman headlight swap

Hello everyone I've got a 2000 foreman 450s and was woundering if I can swap out my lower glass lens head lights for the newer plastic style lights? I tried searching on this topic but have had no luck so far. I was hoping I could get some input from this group. Thanks for the help

Welcome to the board. What exactly are you wanting to use?


On a 450 I'd probably swap in some LED pods like I have on this 300.....

Mounting points are different. Could you make them work? Probably. DIrect fit? Probably not.


Why do you want to go plastic instead of glass? The glass actually does much better at staying clear over time. The plastic yellows from exposure to light.

Because I like the look of the plastic ones and the light travels further through that clear lens versus the glass one

The top one is pretty easy. Bolts in i think i made a small wiring adaptor harness. The lowers will fit with mods, ill grab some pics of my set up over the weekend. You will need the wiring harness for the two lower lights as well, the headlight plugs are different, however the new harness plugs right into the foreman main harness no sweat.
