Headlight recommendation

I have a 2000 650 vstar. Can't seem to find any bolt on led headlights or at least a headlight and a mount that will fit. Seems that most of the aftermarket ones I'm seeing is just universal bolt on cans that don't have the same mounting points. The headlight size is 5.75". Just have a can and harness no light. Bought the bike and somewhat "rebuilt" it now i just need the headlight.

this one looks like plug and play to use your stock headlight housing. this what you want?

Yeah tbat one would work, I had mentioned I don't have any of the stock hardware either. Just can and pig tail. I will keep looking around to see if I can find hardware or a mount kit. So far no luck.

only $40 for a 4000 lumen 45W LED headlight array?

I had no idea the prices had come down so much.

this one will fit my Royal Star for $60:

Great thread and got me thinking also of upgrading to led even though I seldom drive in low light conditions.

I did come across this Sunpie 7" led headlight which has higher lumens thant the previous one listed but it has a canbus - would this still work on our 650s etc v-stars? And what the heck does a canbus do??
