By request, I uploaded a much higher resolution STL file to thingiverse.  I also created a V6 model which is slightly longer and has larger holes for easier removal of infill.

It worked like a champ. Thanks, Logularjason for developing the part.

Could have spray painted it black before installing. That green is an eyesore.

Sure, I could have.  In fact, I could have printed it out of black plastic to start with.

But I didn't.

Seriously, I like the green. Leaves everyone guessing what the modification might be. And my bike is red, and it's Christmas season.

How about water and moist?

I think i might do a similar thing, but keeping the lamp sealed. Cooling is not an issue, as the original headlight bulb is 55W, and LEDs typically are less than 30W.
