Suzuki Marauder Headlight Swap
03/24/16 at 16:01:37
 
The Suzuki Marauder 97-04 have 7" head lamps, ebay had dozens for sale. Make sure they're 7" and not 5" lights, ask the seller to measure the GLASS not the diameter of the ring.

*THIS IS A PLUG AND PLAY DIRECT SWAP, NO MODS TO THE HARNESS OR TRIPLE-TREE ARE REQUIRED.

unbolt your OEM headlight, 2x 12mm nuts under the lower tripletree.

remove the 2x phillips screws L/R that holds in your headlight glass and ring. Lift from the bottom of the glass and ring and a slight twist it should come out. There's a "lip" that holds fast to the upper portion of your bucket.

Unplug the BLACK plug that connects to the bulb.

next, unplug only 1 (one) of the turn signal connections, it's all you need to get enough clearance to remove the wires from the bucket. I unplugged the blue/black connector (right signal).

next, unplug the white connector that plugged your black headlight connector. This will take some doing, it's a VERY tight connection.

remove the rear cover from the Marauder bucket and mount the bucket to the lower tripletree.

feed your wires back through the hole in the new bucket and make all your connections.

Side profile picture. It sticks out quite a bit more than the stock OEM light.

this swap took all of 20 minutes

that included me smoking a cigar, getting a drink and messing with some clam chowder I had started on the stove.

IT IS AN EASY UPGRADE.

Awesome write-up! Thanks Rat! We've been trying to figure out which year Marauder lights work for a while.
