    My right running light burnt out. I opened it up to see what type of bulb it takes and was a bit surprised to find that the bulb is attached to a metal plate about the size of a quarter.

    My question is, do I have to get a replacement from Victory? Or, can they be found somewhere else?. The closest Vic dealer is 85 miles away.

    Does the glass bulb separate from the metal plate? It didn't look like it does and I didn't want to break it.

    No it is one piece. Good luck finding an exact wattage/amp replacement at local dealer or even auto parts stores. When one of mine burned out last year I wound up replacing both because I couldn't find an exact match.
