Hi neil, got some fly kill there !!!

Mine looks slightly the same except when looking straight at the lens, is it by any chance the bulb that has had the halogen gas inside lose its properties or by the tungsten/halogen imbalance its become hotter and unstable and has discoloured the bulbs glass. might be worth taking the bulb out and inspecting as i would of thought near impossible to have a lens discolour ?.

Hi Angus

Yeah the bulb is fine.. just the projector turned opaque from all angles :confused:
The light just scatters everywhere now...
Oh well.. dealer has put a warranty claim through to Benelli. Just waiting on the replacement headlight arriving :ele:
Was just curious to see if anyone else's headlight has suffered this same fate!
Must be the scottish cold weather and flies!

It could be that the light became very hot again through bulb fault causing lens to do this and is the lens a type of plastic ? . By the way how is your partner and do you now have the sound of a young un keeping you both awake and was it a boy/girl what did you decide for a name and what was the weight ( god i've covered all there on that one except was it gas and air,tens etc:rolling: ). wishing you all the best one that one of having children :) .

Hi Angus
