Rated 5 out of 5 by BarginHunter Blinded by the light!
Every rider knows just around the next corner lies the possibility there is someone waiting to pull out in front of you because you have not been seen. It's my belief that by riding defensively well within your ability, one can diminish somewhat the chances of t-boning this lurking vehicle. However, I also believe one should do everything within their power to make themselves seen. For instance, wearing reflective clothing and putting LOT'S OF BRIGHT LIGHTS pointing down the road is in my opinion a step in the right direction. The Custom Auxiliary Lighting Kit is an easy and relatively inexpensive way to do just that. What's your life worth?
By the way ... these lights look nice too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CCrider77 Perfect Once Installed
I've been wanting these since I bought my 2012 FLD and received them for Christmas! First the good. Quality is extremely good. Fit & finish is great, they look right at home on the FLD and the additional lighting really does make a difference when riding at night. I also highly recommend relocating the turn signals below the spots. They look so much better there and it eliminates extra wires running along your handlebars.
Now for the not-so-good... This kit is overpriced - big time. For $309+ you get shells, brackets, hardware, a cheap plastic switch, zip ties and that's it. No bulbs. No reflectors. No lenses. Those will all set you back between $70-$100 additional. Welcome to Harley-Davidson - batteries not included...
Next, the instructions are jacked up. Throw them out and install these using common sense. The electrical connection portion is especially confusing.
And for more, did you know you'll need a special slotted 9/16" deep socket to tighten these up with? Yep. With the wires running through the center of the spotlight shell mounting bolts, it's the only way to get them aimed and tight. I had a machinist friend of mine slot a socket for me, but these aren't real common at auto parts stores. Fair warning...
Oh, and that included switch? It's cheap. Real cheap. I highly recommend chucking this thing and buying a nice lighted. weatherproof switch.
Finally, although the individual lamp wires seem to be really long, and they are - don't trim them. That extra length comes in handy when you have to plug everything in behind the headlamp shroud.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigHD103 Great Look
These lights look great and just the right size.One thing that needs to be changed on the web site is to say that when installing on a new Fatboy these cannot be used with a heritage windshield.If you have the 57140-05 windshield you need to use the light kit such as 69287-07 or the other one that has the cross bar.Between the dealer and the HD site it does not say this and they did not know.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KDurrence great add-on
If you own a switchback this is a must have , changes the whole look of the bike and gives a much better looking place for the turn signals than the stock handlebar position.
