LED lights are the best
Lights are your first line of defense, make yourself visible and this light will deliver. It's extremely bright day or night. Yes it's pricey but I had the dealer install it right away so Harley would warranty it.
I've had this light on all my Harleys and will continue to do so on future bikes. Safety first !

Great addition to comfort at night, but....
(2016 Street Glide Special) Great light and good addition to the blacked out look. Gives me a lot more comfort when riding at night. Yes it is pricey, but when deer pop out of the woods like they do, I would rather pay 600 for a headlight than 6 grand for damages; even if it puts venison in the fridge. It does leave that line on the horizon, but not horrible at all. Now that the positives are out of the way, lets start with the downsides.
When I bought this light from a dealer they said i needed the harness, its only 20 bucks, right? Oh well, I bought it figuring I needed it. (The headlight packaged up does not fit in a saddlebag by the way. Had to take it out of the box to fit) Anyways, I took everything off and installed the headlight in the fairing. Upon connecting the harnesses, (the LED comes with a short harness) I noticed the two capped wires (blue and black) on the separate "needed" harness that were color coded the same as the wires from the bike and the wires from the headlight. You will see in the pictures that the separate harness has 4 wires in the terminal with two capped wires to the side that get plugged into the bike's receptical and the headlight only has 4 wires in its terminal. So I took a multi-meter and tested continuity to see where the capped wires went. I found out after peeling back the black wrap around the "needed" harness' wires, that they are simply spliced into the wires that go to the terminals. You will see better in the pictures, but the harness is not needed and there is enough room to connect the terminals and put the fairing in. The solid blue wire goes from the "needed" harness' female 4-way terminal to a spade connector. The harness included with the headlight has a spade connector with the solid blue wire continuing to the headlights' 4-way terminal. So, basically the headlight has a 4-way female terminal and the bike has a 4-way male terminal that plug directly into eachother and wires match up. With the harnesses plugged in, there is a lot of clutter and I am OCD and did not want unnecessary wires and terminals flopping around. So yes the harness adds unneeded length and it does work with the headlight, but is completely unnecessary. There are no diodes or resistors anywhere in either harness, simply just a mess of wires.
Also, to get the bar and shield logo to light up on accessory, put it in accessory and press the low beam button that flashes your high beams. The low beam and bar and shield logo will stay lit after depressing the button. It can be turned off in accessory the same way it is turned on, or simply turn the bike off. If a dealer charged you for splicing the capped wires to the accessory power, I would get my money back.
Anyways, I hope this helps save you some money.

Absolutely the best upgrade purchase including performance enhancements
Installation of the Daymaker is simple. It's truly "plug and play". I'm reluctant to ride at night in Montana and Wyoming at night for obvious reasons. A few nights ago I rode five hours in the dark and swear I could have seen the eyes of mice reflecting from this light! Roadside reflectors were visible from nearly two miles away. I was able to see more than enough for a comfortable ride without fear of a surprise animal crossing I wouldn't have time to react to. It's $500 that bought me a boatload of comfort. Worth every penny.

Just Okay So Far
Okay, so I bought this newer style LED headlight and had the Dealer install it in my 2014 Street Glide Special.
I do like the blacked out look. Goes good with my bike. The LED light is a truer white light. It illuminates more to the sides, wide pattern that lights up the shoulder of the road well. The high beam is great. Those are the positives.
The low beam does not shine down the road as far as I had hoped. I don't think it's any better than the stock headlight in that respect. I plan on taking it back to the dealer to see if it can be adjusted a bit higher on the low beam. You do also still get a bit of that line on the horizon that people talk about with the LED projector lights. That doesn't bother me much though. The other thing is that in this description it says that the Harley Bar and Shield in the headlight glows in the accessory position. It does not. Only when the ignition is on and the headlight is fully on. I thought that would be a cool feature in a dark driveway to get that little bit of glow. I asked the dealer about it and they said it would have to be wired differently to work that way? I don't believe that since I know the new Road Glides with the reflector LED headlights glow dim in the accessory position. I know this because I rented one. I'm going to check with a different dealer to see what they say about that.
Over all the headlight is okay. Not as good as I expected for the money. I will check with another dealer to see if it can be adjusted better. That may improve my review. I give it 3 stars for the positive points that I listed above.
