    Default BX Tail Light Vulnerability

    I have raked the tail light lenses off 3 or 4 times cutting close around shrubs. Anyone make a bolt on guard for them? 2"x 1/8" flat stock formed to the outside shape of the light would be just the ticket. It would wrap around and bolt onto the existing light bracket.

    I put out a similar inquiry a year or two ago as my wife is on her third set. If you can figure something out please let us know.

    I cinch a long tie wrap around the center section so they don't wipe off and get lost or run over. So far so good.

    Nope. We just let the whole lights break off and tied the wires. The tractor is much more sleek without them. Not needed in the 1st place.

    Busted lenses 3 times.

    First time, slipped while getting off my BX, fell against the light & broke the lense.
    Second time, backed into something and broke the lense.
    Third time, too close to something and broke the lense.

    Injuries sustained - 1, just a minor scrape.
    Total costs - approximately $30 taxes included.
    Time wasted in travelling to the dealer to get a new lense - priceless.

    Mine from getting too close to fence. Second time...haven't replaced latest yet. Thinking about some kind of guard, but concerned that would just move force to fender. Rather break light than fender...

    Buy your replacement lights at TSC, their price is VERY fair, well under $5 as I recall for the lenses - exact same part I might add.
