Looked here and there but cant find an answer. There are several lines that go across the outer headlight glass on my 92 R100RT. I think they were on my 84 I had 15 yrs ago also. Is there a purpose? Or just to look kool.

Lines on headlight

I remember this question on the airheads list and did a search. Nobody knows for sure the purpose of the lines on the headlight. Some people suggested they were defroster lines that picked up the heat from the headlight and redistributed it across the glass. Since headlamps get real hot anyway that explanation was thrown out. The consensus is that it’s just for styling.

You’re correct. It just looks kool.
