Powered up (Single Side) Low Beam 14.4v 1.63 amps





Powered up (Single Side) High Beam 14.4v 2.45 amps





Powered up HD Logo (Single Side) 14.4v 0.03 amps





Pre-Scratched...... The light should be wrapped in a protective sleeve but it just rubs on cardboard during transit.......bad idea Harley!

Question. Does the 2 led blocks look like it can be separated from the housing? Reason I'm wondering is to add the led halo mod.

As best I can tell, the lenses are Glass (one of the reasons for the weight gain), so you might be able to polish out the scratch with out too much trouble. Surprised they would scratch so easily.

One other guy had the idea of splicing the bike harness to the LED harness, and eliminating the H4 connectors. That much less bulk to deal with behind the fairing.

The Glass is sealed to the aluminum housing. I would not even attempt to get them apart.

When I did my radio install I clipped and Heat shinked all the the extra connectors and would just solder in the new style harness but if I ever trade the bike in for a newer one the lights most likely will be swapped

You can also check lshd1.com. If you have the Part Number, they are 20% off always. Sometimes with free shipping. That is where I got mine.

The headlight assemblies (what you called LED Blocks) mount to the exact same backplate (part numbers 6 thru 9 above) as the 2010 and up headlights. They are individually removable from the front as well, same 4 screws but with rubber washers. The domes appear to be made out of glass so they may not be the same shape as the non-LED lights. Not sure if that affects the Halo mounting or not.

When I mounted mine I used the same process as I used ever since I put the 2010 headlight assembly in my 2009 to put things back together.
  1. Remove the headlights from the backplate (4 screws each)
  2. Hang the fairing without the headlights installed, get it bolted/screwed down.
  3. Install the headlight backplate to the fairing.
  4. Install the headlights on the backplate.

By not having the headlights installed, it makes hanging the fairing easier.
By not having the headlights on the backplate, it makes it easier to get the damn thing installed on the fairing. You can see what those green clips are doing from the back, make sure they are not pinching wires, make sure they can seat properly, get the f***ing things off if they do not.
