Rated 5 out of 5 by DrKNC One of my top 3 upgrades1
This is a must upgrade. Increases visibility in the day time dramatically and at night, it lights it up amazingly. The install is really plug & play, however the only challenge will be reinstalling the head lamp trim ring. The stock screw seems slight undersized (my buddy's was much longer...but he had the dealer do his). Just be patience and you'll get it on.

Definitely riding more confidently at night with this new addition. The difference between halogen and LED light can't be overstated and this product is worth the investment for anyone wanting to see more at night. Do yourself the favor because you're safety is worth every penny for this headlamp. Installation was simple and to the point. Thanks again HD for another quality product.

If your pipes aren't loud enough, then consider adding this headlamp and be noticed day or night. Provides extensive visibility in dark areas. You probably won't even have to use the high beam since the main light is great. Installation was a breeze. I had to lean the front fairing a bit forward for it to fit properly.

My OCD really started showing on this install, so I'm posting this so that you may benefit from my neuroses—er, attention to detail.
On my 2009 FXD the install calls for the installation of the LED housing assembly, essentially a new bell for your Daymaker. Some may have questioned this and fit it into their existing housing. More power to them. My closest dealership is 4 hours away, so that was worth the $60 to me just to go with it. I'm ultimately glad I did.
The housing assembly has three connections, and the headlamp has two. I don't like having unexplained loose connections or wires. There is nothing in the documentation to address these extra wires, but they are indeed extra for North American installs, per the Q&A section here. I'm pretty sure the black was a ground, but there's just nowhere to plug it in. The is a red/white wire as well, but again nothing to match it anywhere. I electrical taped them up and let them hang. The red wire on the light has been addressed in other reviews and questions.
(A H-D tech also suggested Dynas require an additional wiring harness. I don't know about other installs, but the FXD did not require anything other than the housing kit.)
The difference is all in the performance, and it's worth the 4 bills you lay out for this. Compared to my OEM halogen bulb, the difference is remarkable (I was an early adopter of Trucklite's LEDs on my Jeep TJ, and have loved the bright white they threw. I wanted it on everything I drive/ride.). I was initially wary of these when I read reviews criticizing the field of light on turns. My experience does not warrant that kind of criticism at this point.
The lateral light seems to throw somewhere around 110-120°, estimated. It's wide right in front of the bike. And it reaches out a way, too, just using the low beam pattern. Throw on the high beams and it really reaches out there.
It does come with a hefty price tag. I wish it were less, but the enhanced visibility for me and to other drivers is worth very penny.
