Has anyone here had experience with the Chinese reproduction head lamp assemblies for the K bikes? Not unexpected, BMW wants $800 bucks for the assembly. The knock-offs are about a third that much. They do update the look to current standards by using a clear lens and the reflector to focus the beam, which would be a nice update, but only if it fits without the "usual" made-in-china quality issues. Anybody?
I would stay away as I have not heard anything good or bad from it YET ... although I visit 3 different K1200RS / K1200LT forums for last 15 years. I would hate to be the 1st guinea pig here...
As an alternative, you can find some good price from reputable vendor on EBAY for a used OEM units - source is mainly parted K1200RS (all years) OR any K1200GT (2003-2005 only).
