I don't remember exactly but a headlight from a YJ Jeep is a direct fit replacement.

Generally known in auto-speak as a "5x7" headlight.

I don't have an S2 but I got this one for my Jeep XJ and it was a big improvement:

Truck headlight. Formally "2B1". Plenty of choses. From $10 to whatever you are willing.

I also use a hella but I use the "e-code" version and not the DOT version. Better light spread IMO.

I have a ddmtuning.com H4 HID bulb in it. Same as my XJ Cherokee. Love it. Cherokee I run 55w but on the bike I run a 35w. Color temp 4500, nice and white. 3000 starts to go amber; 5500 gets into the blues which are crap for actual task lighting.

I am actually looking at putting a square headlight on my build I think it fits the lines better but I will be going with a 4x6 led instead of the 5x7

4x6 is S3 for reference on the "look".
