Rated 3 out of 5 by JTE1 Lens must be out of alignment
Bought this new with the bike in July 2013, five times I've brought in for aiming at three different dealers.
The set that I have you can either have effective lighting on low beam or high beam but not both.
When aimed using the instructions (Light mass C/L 2.1" below C/L of high beam lamp height at 25') the low beams then are useless with no light beyond 100-125' in front of bike.
At highway speeds, this is just over one second travel distance.
So then I aligned them to the low beams myself, with the center of the light mass 3" below C/L of low beam lamp at 25'.
Now I get wonderful light down the road on low beam but the high beam is useless as it goes so high up into the trees it's actually funny. Rode thru a neighborhood of two story houses at night and turned on the high beams and it lit up the rooftops of houses only 100-200 ft away.
For nearly $1000 installed, any customer should certainly expect this lamp to have razor sharp aiming on both low and high beams, and not the "one or the other" choice I have experienced.
Thirty years ago, I was selling Cibie automotive headlamps-and I still have sets on my two old cars and they are far better optically than this lamp, with no aiming issues at all on low or high beam using a standard halogen H4 bulb.
I am actually very much in favor of the LED lamps, had the 7" daymaker with the 4" aux lamps on my Road King with no issues so it appears I might have received a bad set but the dealers won't replace it under warranty #still valid# and no response yet from Harley on a resolution.
Buyer beware on this lamp, and check right away for both high and low beam aiming effectiveness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nychopper I can ride at night again
I was jealous all other models had LED, so I was ecstatic when the Daymaker came out for the FLTR. Of course I have a 2001 and it only fits 2004 and newer. Why? They changed the angle of the fairing mount in 2004. It bolts right in, but does aim a tad higher on pre 2004. Some oncoming motorists have voiced displeasure about this, but at least they saw me. You could change the mounting bracket to the newer style if it really bothers you, but I figure its the same angle as if I put on lowering shocks. Expensive? Heck yeah, but well worth it

Half of my miles are at night. I ride on country roads and Highway. I had LED's on my Ultra and wanted them on my road glide. I installed them, not too hard be ready to drill 2 holes in your fairing (Not a big deal# using the template provided. The lights wiring plugs into existing wiring easily. Total install was around 1.5 Hours I would rate it a 4 out of 10 for skill needed. #drilling, Fairing removal, Adjusting lights)
Now the question are the lights worth the cash? I took them on back country roads and Highway and could see 2x better than with my regular headlights. I thought my road glide lights were the best stock on a motorcycle I had ever riden with until I installed LED's. The low beam covers the sides and center of the road very well. The High Beam lights up anything in front of you. Highway overhead signs seem to "turn on" when I approach. Oh the parking light feature is a added bonus.

I am an LD, so I knew the advantage of LED's. Most of the other bikes in the Harley line had them available, except the Road Glide. The 3rd party companies that offered LED's for the Glide just didn't look right, so when the dealer called me and said that they were taking pre-orders, I made the move. The dealer didn't even have a set to demo, so when they called me to pick up the bike, they couldn't stop raving about the brightness. I soon found out what they meant. I drove down a very rural road at night and it seemed as though every reflective sign or marker was self-illuminated. VERY IMPRESSIVE!!! It was worth the wait. I would say that having LED's is as good an investment as a louder set of pipes.
