Bright lights
« on: May 09, 2017, 02:33:35 PM »
Hi everyone.

So I have a big boy sportflite F35 150cc... I need a new light bulb (brights)... How easy is it to replace it myself? What kind of light bulb should I buy?... Or do I absolutely have to go and get it done by a mechanic?

Super easy Lerato. Bulb will cost under R100, and I'm certain a Philips screwdriver is all you need.

Visit your local nike shop and they will give you the correct bulb.

Not sure whether you had success in changing the head light bulb yet?
I found that it was easier removing the cowling housing the headlight. A few screws and indicator and head-light plugs to remove. Yes, it is a bit more labour intensive, but easier to ensure correct seating of the bulb and the wire clip to clip in correctly. Also easier when you have big hands and small places to work in. :evil:

If its a standard type lightbulb (I'm not familiar with the Chinese scoots) try getting it from an auto spares shop (Midas, Autozone, etc.) as it will most probably be a lot cheaper than the bike shops. It will help if you take the old one along.
