    Help an imbecile install headlight set springs on a Yamaha YT125G

    So I am putting a 1980 YT125G back together, and got an NOS headlight lens and bucket to install into the chrome ring, and I have these four set screws that look like handlebars (they were out when I got it)...how do they go in? I assume one per side or two on the top and two on the bottom, but its not actually clear how they're supposed to go.

    Have a photo of them? Only spring mounted lights I've seen were two clip/springs on each side of the light to the chrome ring.

    According to the diagram on partzilla, there's atleast one on top lol. Since there's 4 I suspect one on each side of the light since the diagram appears to be centered.

    Also seems like the light is still available, mind measuring the width/height of it? Might be a suitable replacement for some Honda ATC's.

    Thats the spring, the lens assembly itself is approx 5 1/8" side to side and about 4 1/4 top to bottom, and about 2 7/8" from the edge of the bulb socket to the front of the lens.

    Its not perfectly rectangular, all edges have a slight curve to them

    I see, smaller than what I was hoping, but I think the smaller Hondas had a similar sized headlight. I'll have to see if I have like a ATC110 headlight around to compare. Thanks for the numbers.

    Also I ran across a Honda headlight lately with a similar clip system, it was a round headlight, but it used 4 clips evenly spaced out.

    Here's a link to the diagram. Ironically it's also a 1980 lol.
