    I've ran an automotive bulb in my XS650 for 10 years and haven't had any issues. I considered another one for my Vetter but figured I'd look into a true motorcycle lens for comparison.

    With that info in the manual you can get a new lock to fit in Tractor Supply. It's located in the hardware isle. If I remember correctly it's for 1/2 inch thick wood drawer facing. That 1/2 inch denotes how thick the wood is but...
