Let me check at home.  I may have an old headlight that was damaged when I crashed a couple years back.  The bucket and trim piece are jacked up, but I forget if the lens is.

if you can not find a OEM part, check out LED.  ive read that the phase 7 led will work on the raider. 
sure is a lot cheaper than the HD led that i bought for the wife's sportster....

You could also swap the headlight out for a victory headlight. I think it looks great. Here is a thread about it.

MudSlide- You're wanting the glass part of the headlight, correct?  If so, I should have you covered.  The aluminum lens frame was trashed, but the lens is in good shape.

The Raider's headlight is 5 3/4" in diameter. The phase 7 is 7" in diameter.

ok that sucks that the phase 7 isnt made in the 5 3/4 size....i know the HD is made in the 5 3/4 size because thats what the sportster has and I put one in my wifes IRON.  only thing is the trim ring on HD is just that, its a ring slides over that holds it to the bucket and then you adjust the entire bucket up and down...where as ours bolts to the ring and has adjustment for the lens within the ring....
the HD LED was expensive but it is considerably brighter than my 55w HID.  the down side to the HD is that when you go to hi, the low cuts off.  the phase 7 the high function leaves the low on as well....

Wicked Cool!!
I should have no problem replacing the glass and sealing the assembly up.

Ooohh... I don't hate that at all!  Mighty sexy!
No modding for me right now.  I just need to get the Headlight watertight again.  Not to say my packing tape isn't doing the job, but...
Thanks, Monsoon.

PM me your address and I'll see what it cost to ship.  Depending on how much it is, maybe nothing.   I need to go to the post office anyway.
