Can't you just look at it and see? If it has two bulbs in the reflector or it lights up real dim when you use the parking light function, then yes it has one.

Has anybody fitted a Sylvania H6024 in a late model bonnie?


I got the Sylvania H2064 at Wally World and attempted to fit it today. It wasn't wanting to go and as it was getting dark and cold, I gave up for the day.

TWinOKC , did you get it to fit ? I had trouble on my 11 Thruxton as well. Same as you gave up because of the cold and lack of light. Couldn't get the retainer ring back on.

I put one in Mrs. Irish's Bonneville, but it's a 2002. It went in like a charm. Maybe the later buckets are different?

The bulb has to leads that come off the socket and they go to a plug. I just pulled the whole thing out and left the other end of the plug in the bucket. I think I am going to use that plug to rig up a USB charger.

Same problem as you, couldn't get the retainer to go back on.

The headlight has 3 tabs on the back that make it too thick to get the retainer back onto the outer ring assy. Haven't mucked with it since, maybe after the holiday I will give it another look.

Any assistance appreciated.

I was going to purchase the Hella also and wanted to know if anyone has that in an EFI Bonny. Curious if the fit is going to be trouble.

If I remember correctly , the fitting problem affected the Hella also on later models of the Bonny and the Thrux. That was the reason I tried the H6024 instead of shelling out the extra money for the Hella.

That's a bummer. The Hella seemed like a nice solution. I'll consider the sylvania but I liked the fact you could change the bulb in the Hella.
