Headlight assembly or headlight bulb?
Bulbs are readily available as long as you have the shim that is needed to reposition the tabs.
Without shims, the bulbs can be bought in many places.
The headlight assembly might be a bit difficult to find.

I am trying to replace my headlight to the one that is on the 1998-2000. Every where that I look says they are discontinued. Any help would be appreciated.

Cyclemax carried them in stock for years, I would give them a call.

It was a popular change that many owners of pre '98 wings did to make them look "newer", but it's a plastic like lense and the reflector has the focus facets, the older lights had glass lenses and the lense had the focusing facets in it. I preferred the glass.
