2005 XT brake light globe #7443

Just went and bought a brake light globe from korean parts in Parow @R15.00 ea. They first gave me a 7440 which only has one strand of wire.
Interesting, the OEM globe is heavier than the globe I got (could be better manufacturing now vs then).
OEM 6.14g
New globe 5.84g

This is very interesting,
the bulbs have different "E" markings which is why I found this.
