Sealed beam 4667-1

1. Sealed Beam Headlights (bulbs)

Sealed beam means the entire glass lens in front and mirror reflector in back, are evacuated of air. The bulb cannot be replaced without replacing the whole glass. Moped 4.5 inch round head lights, sealed beam or non-sealed, interchange with some tractor lights, auto and motorcycle fog lights, forklift, golf cart, and utility vehicle lights. There are even clear plastic 4.5″ round 12V landscaping lights that can interchange.

2. Non-Sealed Headlights (fixtures for bulbs)

Non-sealed headlights means the bulb is not sealed in. It can be removed and replaced without replacing the whole glass, at a much lower cost. 

a. for under 21 watt generators (most mopeds)

These headlights take automotive bulbs with a BA15s base. Bulbs with this base have about a 20 watt rating. That matches the headlight power output of most mopeds. There are two main bulb choices, #1156 (12V 21W) and #1129 (6V 18W), and also 6V 21W. The bulbs are for car turn signals. The #1156 is sold in every US auto parts store and in some convenience stores. There are also other less common bulbs with this base that interchange, including LED versions.

Luxor, ULO, Taiwan headlights have different w-clips. See below.

RBH-06 replaceable bulb headlight

Generic non-sealed (replaceable bulb) Headlights

RBH-06   comes with   6V 18W #1129 bulb $30 
For 6V DC battery power, or 15 to 20 watt 6V AC generator power.   
RBH-12   comes with 12V 21W #1156 bulb $30
For 12V DC battery power, or 15 to 20 watt 12V AC generator power. 

#1156 12V 21W bulbs are easy to get at USA auto stores.
12V bulb (temp. substitute) works in a 6V system, but is dimmer.

Bulb socket snaps onto metal back reflector.

This is offered in single filament only, for three reasons. 1) The socket requires a bulb with equal nubs. Common dual filament USA auto bulbs have unequal nubs and unequal filaments. 2) Most moped generators require about 20 watts for each filament. There are 21/5 watt dual filament, but on a generator-powered moped that would quickly burn out the 5W filament, because the generator makes 20 watts. The generator watts must match the total bulb watts, or there will be an under or over-voltage. A 5 watt headlight would get super bright from an over-voltage, and soon burn out, in a few minutes. 3) There are plenty of automotive dual filament headlight bulbs, but they have too many watts and the wrong type of socket.

b. for over 21 watt generators (motorcycles and some mopeds)

RBH-H3-06a replaceable bulb headlight

RBH-H3-06a  with H3-type  6V 25W bulb $28

This headlight is for mopeds with stronger generators, or motorcycles with moped-size 4.5″ headlights. The bulb is a halogen type. They run hot and require the glass to be clean and free of fingerprints.

 

 


3. Sealed to non-sealed Conversion

Metal-Backed (not glass-backed) Sealed Beam Headlight – Upgrade to Replaceable Bulb

CEV 171 upgraded

CEV 172 upgraded

This conversion/upgrade is a service procedure, not a part replacement.

Any metal-backed sealed beam headlight can have a hole cut in the back. The hole allows a snap-on bulb socket to give access to the bulb. Then when the bulb burns out, the entire glass does not have to be changed. This is a big advantage.

Myrons can perform this procedure on your burned out sealed beam, as long as it has a metal back, not glass.

Honda Express headlight upgrade

Honda Express, before and after upgrade

At right is an original Honda Express headlight before and after the conversion. When Myrons Mopeds performs this, the wires are transferred over so they still plug in the same way as before. The high and low beam wires are connected together, so the hi-lo switch does not change anything. The benefit is there are many bulb choices that are inexpensive and easy to get.

The snap-on bulb socket can be ordered separately. It has spring loaded wings that hold it in a one inch hole. That is the size just big enough to pass a #1156 bulb through.

E8764   snap-on bulb socket for any 1 inch hole   $6
This has only one wire. Must solder on a second wire.
The old plug(s) can be transferred to these new wires,
then the bike wires will remain the same.

CEV 4.5 inch round headlights, with metal backs, can be converted. Two examples are shown above. So can vintage Japanese headlights with metal backs, like most 1970’s -80’s small Hondas and Yamahas. 

The conversion/upgrade costs $30 for parts and labor, plus return shipping $9 (to USA). Takes about one day.

4. CEV Head Lights

C.E.V. head lights, made in Italy by Fratelli Pagani (Pagani Brothers), are on many Italian motorcycles, most European mopeds, and all Italian mopeds (US models). The moped size is “Tipo 105” which is 105mm at the lip of the glass, and 112mm at the edge, which is 4 1/2 inch. This size sealed beam bulb is also on farm equipment and auxillary vehicle lights.

  Far right, a CEV 2158 “bullet” headlight. It comes with a block off plate over the speedometer hole. Most European moped speedometers fit into the hole, such as CEV, VDO, Huret, Veglia. Japanese made Tatung speedos are too small. besides the beautiful classic look, hiding most of the wiring inside, the glass fixture features a replaceable bulb socket, a big benefit. With sealed beam headlights, when they (often) burn out you have to buy a whole new glass, that’s both expensive and difficult to find. But with a non-sealed beam (replaceable bulb) fixture, you can change the small 15mm bulb inside. It’s a common automotive bulb #1156 (12V 21W) or #1129 (6V21W). You can get an 1156 at all night convenience stores for $1 or $2. Another benefit is you can run an LED bulb, or any 1156 compatible. That’s a single prong bulb. No high beam, just low.

CEV Rectangular Head Lights

Saturnus oldCEV
Both CEV and Saturnus made rectangular head lamps for Tomos mopeds in the 1990’s and 2000’s. They use a large base 12V 25/25w BA20d hi-lo bulb. They are wider than the older round lights, but not as tall. Note how the CEV glass has lots of certifications on it, including SAE and DOT. Then notice how the Saturnus glass has only the E10 certification.

ULO6. ULO-Niox Head Lights

 
 
 
NioxNiox German-made head light fixtures are made for ULO German-made rings, housings, and clips. They do not interchange with CEV. On 1970’s US mopeds, a Niox 4.5″ round head light in a ULO housing was original on 1978-81 Puch Magnum. Niox square headlights were on 1984-86 Puch Maxi Sport LS, Maxi Sport LS II, Cobra, Cobra II, and Austro Daimler. ULO-housed Niox round headlights were also on some German moped makes like Solo (Odyssey in US). Every other German, Austrian, or Dutch moped had a CEV headlight.

7. Taiwan Head Lights

Taiwan head lights, made in Taiwan, are on General, Angel, Indian, etc. The rim does not interchange with CEV. The Taiwan spring “W” clips are different than CEV ones.
