So far so good makes my 05 xl1200c look like a brand new bike. Need to tilt my housing and we ready to go. Would recommend making a foam gasket to make it fit tighter very slight shake overall would recommend very stylish.
So, i honestly figured i would try this before spending a lot more. I put it on an 04 dyna low rider. First off, i had heard that people had to kind of make adjustments to get it into the stock light fixture, that was not the case here, i had to make zero modifications and it plugged in and fit perfectly with no movement. I used it a few days later in the dark and it was actually pretty amazing how much better it lit up than the stock light. It it literally 3 to 4 times brighter and even puts out like a line that extends about 30 feet to the left and right of the bike. Once i clicked it to the bright, it was like i was in an actual large truck, thats how much light it emitted. As for the durability, it has only been a few days, but honestly if i had to replace it every year, i would still be totally fine with it. Great light and the black looks really cool.
I received my light a day early which was nice, the packaging doesn’t come off as cheap at all. The light itself seemed like a quality product from the looks and feel. The next day i went to install it expecting it to be a pain in the ass. Other than me forgetting about the inner ring for a few mins, it was in and back together in 5 mins. I haven’t had the the chance to test it in the road yet (wisconsin) but it is so much brighter than what i had. So far very happy with this product, it was recommended by someone who has 1 on 2 of his bikes and loves them. Hope i have the same experience.
I have 140k miles on my 2003 harley dyna and have tried so many different daystar, sivlerstar, halogen bulbs it’s ridiculous. The hd led headlights are 3 -4 times the price of this which is why i never purchased them. This headlight fit perfect in my 5 3/4 inch headlight housing. It was literally disconnect old light, connect new light, tighten bezel, and ride. Super easy, exact replacement. This headlight is freaking bright. There is a definite difference between low and high beam (not accurately portrayed in pic) but the high beam throws a vertical wall of light way down the road. I would give it a conservative estimate of 3x the distance of the same watt halogen bulb. If ever a product was appropriately named, the daymaker headlight is that product. Because of the vertical oval of light thrown in the high beam, it was extremely easy and quick to adjust the headlight exactly where i wanted it for max throw. I wish i had a dual headlight setup so i could have two of these things.
Exactly as described fits and works perfectly. Only one downfall of this one is the plastic (chrome) bezel is not quality. If your original taillight is an exact match and the oe chrome bezel is in good shape all you have to do is swap out the mounting screws and the led light and gasket will fit perfectly. Otherwise use lots of locktite and do not overtighten with the cheap plastic bezel this comes with, it will twist/split and/or crack. Light itself looks and performs great. It’s clear and bright day or night.
Installed this light on my 2002 fatboy. Turn signals to put saddlebags on so this light i seemed to be what i needed. Chrome bezel but it would not line up so i ended up using the bezel that came with the light even though it seems cheaply made. The light seems bright enough as do the turn signals. I may have to add some foam behind the light as it is open where the wires come through the fender. Overall i really hope this light holds up over time.

Light power seems very bright, light pattern is okay. Installation was okay, but a bit difficult due to connector. High beam increases light output, but may not be placed correctly to have further sight. I’ll update review after i ride at night or have a wall further away to test. Looks good on the bike though. Pictures show original and this new bulb for comparison.
Just installed 2 of these on my 2013 triumph thunderbird storm. It’s a major improvement over stock.
As far as i can tell, this is the same headlight hd sells for over $200 clams. My buddy came over and he has a hd model daylight headlight, we took it apart and could not tell a difference between this one and the oem model. This one took 10 minutes to install, looks nice and tosses out a lot of lumens.
Put it on my 07 dyna lowrider. It seriously took less than 5 minutes to install. High and low beam works perfectly. Plug and play and this appears to be super bright. Will leave more feedback after a night ride.
I can’t say enough about this light. Given the price, i expected some corners to be cut. The product is well made, solid construction from the lens, to the heat exchanger to the wiring. Huge improvement over the stock halogen. I installed it last night on my vrod and it looks fantastic.
I bought this for my 2018 indian scout. I had it in and working in about 12 minutes. Upon removing the stock light. Plug and test the new one just to make sure there are no issues. It takes 10 seconds and it also allows you to know what side is up even though the pictures indicate this on the packaging. It fit without issue outside of finding room for the bit of length of plug. After a little bit of maneuvering, i got it in without issue. S others have said, take caution in removing the spring or retaining clips from the old one to use for the new one. They will pop out and possible hit you in the face. I suggest an area where you cannot lose them and safety glasses should be worn.
I looked at numerous daymaker led lights for my dyna low rider and because of the reviews picked this one. Mind you, hd wanted $300 for a similar light. My niece and i watched a youtube video on the installation and we had the light installed within 15 min. Super easy to install and it’s functional and looks great. I highly recommend this product.
Had a bit of a time getting it to fit but once it settled in its been fine. Way brighter than the 9004 replacement led bulb i had. Roadsigns pop even during the day.
This was exactly as described and a complete plug and play installation taking less than 10 minutes. The difference was obvious even in the daylight. Upon taking it out tonight, i couldn’t be happier. It seems more like having the lights from my truck rather than a single unit. It provides a very bright, very crisp white light. I’ve read some reviews that mentioned issues with installation regarding a ‘tight fit’. I didn’t see anything of the sort. The plugs match, it slides in the housing and you put on the trim ring.
Took a while to install on my sportster but i’m somewhat klutzy. Make sure you get the dot marking at the top during the install as there are other locations to index the locating tab on a harley. Appreciate the smaller current draw to take some of the electrical load off the bike. Sure hope it lasts as it is definitely a great improvement to my 2001 lighting system. Makes the old headlamp look like its candle powered in comparison.
You can use it with the stock base plate or the one provided anddd the circuit board fits inside. I originally got the phgiveu and i don’t want to bash the light because i knew i’d have some fitting issues based on the reviews, however. There is almost no way to make that fit into the stock light mounting plate. I spent a couple hours with the dremel fixing the holes to line up the bolts, trimming the plastic edge, and trimming the gasket which wasn’t even close. It’s a nice bright light but it won’t fit without a 1/8in gap and that’s if you hard wire it without the circuit board. I ended up getting this sunpie led brake light which fits perfect in the stock base plate as well as the one it comes with with the circuit board inside. Save the money learn from my mistake.
Motorcycle 5-3/4 5.75 LED Headlight for Harley Davidson 883,sportster,triple,low rider,wide glide Headlamp Projector Driving Light : Ordered for a victory octane, arrived today did install and a before and after night ride. Althoughhonestly i can’t tell if i have it in upside down or not. I have the highbeam bulbs on the bottom. Pros:black ballast looks amazingplug and play was simple and worksshipping was fast even though it arrived later than “expected”(i live in hawaii)package was small, very tight, no room for damagecons:no instructions (install is simple but what side is up?)wish they had more lumens, i ride through roads with no street lights daily in rural areas. Honestly, my cons feel petty. The lights are brighter than stock, but i had hoped for a little more, and the install simple, just wanted a picture or a sticker saying which side should go up. So really solid product so far, i will come back and update if i have any issues with wet visibility, or longevity.
