Default Headlight modification/separation

I have a Halogen (victory oem) that has a broken lense. Any tips in separating it for the back/base that holds the bulbs? I see there is a sealant joining the two pieces and what I though was a metal ring. It is not a metal ring. It is silver painted glass. So I'm kind of perplexed. I'm sure I could break that stip of silver glass and separate the lense for the base. Then comes the question of separating the donor lense to replace the broken one on the halogen. Has anyone done this?
TIA. Dan

This is an excellent opportunity to buy an install a LED headlight unit. There are many being offered for way less than $200. Way better light too. Why not?

I just upgraded to the led light so if you would like the stock halogen I would not mind sending it over after we discuss an offer.

These work great after you get it fixed to prevent it from happening again

Who has them in stock that you know of? I haven't been able to find one for under $220.00.

I just plan on doing everything twice when I start it and that way when it takes 3 times to get it right I'm only half as mad.

Thanks. I thought you were talking about the OEM one. I should have grabbed a spare when they were clearing them out at Victory

I think Paulie at Honda East Toledo was selling them discounted. Witchdoctors also was throwing a big discount on the oem one as well with code 'Beacon'.

This LED light on Amazon works great. The other Chinese lights that have pigtails do not work as well. This one looks just like the OEM and it claims to be DOT approved. I can't imagine the OEM light is much brighter. If you can find an OEM under $200 grab it, but if not this is a great alternative for only $90.
