Dolmuj2,

You are the first request we have gotten for an XV125 Virago.

Where in the world are you located?

Doesn't seem there is any information that specifically indicates the headlight lens sizes only the part number and that number isn't from a U.S. Market source.

There are several parts on Virago's that are interchangeable. Not sure, if the headlight is one of them. I can provide you with the diameter of a U.S. Market XV1100 Special. If you would like that.

Let me know.

There's always a First for everything :D

I'm from Estonia.

As far as i know 125 and 250 should be almost the same, one just has bigger engine.

Yeap, i managed to find part number aswell, but no info about measurements.

Planning to change out the headlight, was hoping to get away with changing the reflector glass part only...no point to order anything before knowing the exact fitment.

U can tell me 1100 reflector housing diameter.
It should be smaller than 7"and bigger than 5.75", right?


Best regards

The lens face is 5.50" from edge to edge. However, there is a bit more that goes under the metal trim ring that can't be measured until the headlight is removed. Sorry, that's my best guess. I just went out and measured it.

What type of lighting system are you thinking of converting to LED?

Think Twice about doing that:
