Hello all,
Checking my headlamp, I realized that I need a new reflector and some other minor pats.
Please see some pictures enclosed of my lamp.
When going over to Huggett's site to chapter 63.05, I can see that there are 2 groups for the headlight:
"Headlight" and "Headlight Installation Parts".

https://www.bmwbike.com/index.php?e=mhs&hf=2&hg=63&fg=05&btf=63_0542&c=h...

What group/drawing should I refer to regarding my headlight and its reflector?
I can't get that answer from Huggett himself...
Another important thing I would like to know:
As BMW bikes where rare here in Israel and spare parts where tricky to find, with time goes by I understood that it is possible to find some non-original parts on my 51/3, fitted from other models (throttle for example, is a Magura from an R50, if I remember right).
Can you Pls confirm that the pictured reflector is the correct one for a R51/3? I do not want to buy a new one, the correct one – and then find out that I have a wrong lamp shell…
Thanks a lot! Appreciate your time!

As far as the reflector goes,

As far as the reflector goes, the part number is the same in the two pictures when I look on RealOEM. That part number, 63128050181, shows up on all bikes from the R24 to the R69S.

As for the lens, I checked my R25/2 and it was made by Bosch so it looks different and doesn't have the same things molded into the glass. I notice there's a Hella lens that matches yours on ebay UK right now.
