Rubber Floor Blanking Plug that fits (tight fit) the hole at the rear of Headlight MCH52...just need to cut a hole for wiring!

I got one of those, but I had to trim the inner lip off, I also fitted it dome inwards, I'll put a hole in it for the wires though.

Has anyone ever come up with a reason for that huge hole? Seems pointless to me.

Isn't it needed to allow clearance for the lamp base so the headlight shell can be separated from the wiring loom?

No, no other bike has ever used that shell, you don't need a large hole to withdraw the harness.
