Gudday all,

I recently bought a YB8 Furano which I'm importing to Australia (not arrived yet). To use it on the road here, I'll need to change the headlights for use to drive on the left side of the road.

The parts manual doesn't say what lights are fitted. Does anybody know what bike supplied the headlights (there is some anecdotal information about suggesting it may have been a FZR600 or FZR750).

Geting 25 year old parts that aren't worn out is another challenge as Yamaha has made these parts obsolete for many years.

This would save me waiting until the bike arrives and then scratching about parts suppliers and breakers yards with the lights to see what I can get.

Andrew...

Hi

Not sure , but I have been told the Dieci used early FZR1000 headlights. Have a feeling the Furano lights are the same

All the best

My '89 YB8 uses FZR1000 Genesis headlights. Not sure if the Furano would use the same.

There is a set up on Gumtree at the moment. It might be worth a punt.
