You have a seventies enduro with likely 6v magneto lighting. I'd say the 5 1/2" is correct.

Welcome to the VJMOG,


Was the one you got Suzuki or an after market? Are you talking about the bucket and the seal beam unit or just the sealed beam?

Here is the round about way to answer your own question. Enter the part number for the headlight bucket (51810-30000) in the images tab of google. Then you will see buckets for sale that have an embossed number on them along with the Suzuki 'S' logo. Does the bucket on your bike have the same number?

If you need the sealed beam unit only....... (35121-27630) ......6 Volt 25 watts/25watts will be stamped with ink on the back.

Go to Partszilla website and enter the part numbers and it should show all the bikes that the bucket and or just sealed beam unit will fit......then someone can tell you the correct size for sure.

Here is the bucket only fitment list....

http://www.partzilla.com/parts/detail/suzuki/SP-51810-30000.html







Just for general info...copied and pasted text....

Vintage Suzuki Headlight Bulb Unit
Suzuki OEM part #35121-27630
Stanley # 001-1103
6V 25W/25W

Fitment:
1973-75 TS185 (Sierra)
1973-75 TS250 (Savage)
1973-75 RV125 (Tracker)
and maybe others, above bikes were 6V 30W/30W after 1975


Good Luck and again, Welcome to the VJMOG

Shows to have the same bucket as my '75 t500, so we're talking 6 1/2" for the sealed beam. Overall o.d. 7"

thanks for all your research and help.i just don't wanna pay 100 bucks or more for a headlight.i found one in a halogen,but the light measured 6 7/8 across,where mine measures 6 9/16,and i didn't want to try to squeeze something in just to find out it wouldn't fit.

anybody ever hear of carefully cutting the bulb out of a sealed beam light and replacling it with a socket and new bulb?

Yeah that's pretty common. I recently did that to my '77XT500. I used an H4 6v bulb. Way cheaper than paying for rare hard to find sealed beams, especially in 6 volt.

I used a Dremel with a cut off wheel, like Paul recommends.

thanks for all the help and pics.the bulb replacement went great.now i can replace the bulb not the whole sealed beam unit.
so,my bike(only kick start)is hard to start.i cleaned out the carb,hoping that would help,but no.i found a youtube vid where a guy showed using a length of small tubing and blowing air into the tube on the carb.looks like the overflow,but i don't think it is.well,when i tried this,the bike fires on the 2nd kick!is it possible to get it to do this without blowing air into the carb?it runs good when i get it running, i just don't fancy 20 kicks to do it.thanks

If you're blowing air into the bowl vent, then you're forcing fuel into the carb throat. It sounds like your enrichment/choke circuit may be restricted. Also, the enrichment circuit only works properly when the throttle is closed.
