There are options for those with '13 and older. Those of us with '15 and newer are s.o.l. for now other than CD. But now that those are out there, only a matter of time before the cheap Chinese ones start showing up.

Even though the China ones are let's say inexpensive, I see alot of different ones for 13 and older, about 4 or 5 different designs, saw the brand called eagle eyes looked pretty nice, and not really alot of complaints on qaulity, so I going to check out that other thread, thanks fellas.

I have a few friends that are running after market Daymakers. Not on road glides but still after market Daymakers. They are bright and have had zero problems so far, Got them off of ebay...If mine ever go out, I will be getting the after market brand.

The LED bulbs make a huge difference over stock. I have the fuelmoto, but hooked mine up a little different, I made my own doeble row LED halo that I have hooked up as low beam and are very visible during day then when night hits then I hit the high beam and on comes the LED bulbs & they lights up everything. In my sig pic, it's only halo lights on

I forgot to put this on my build thread but did headlight mod same time as I did the glovebox light mod, used same double row LED strips in headlight as in glovebox, they work awesome and can be cut to size. Been on almost 3 years now. Here's a thread for glovebox mod. https://www.roadglide.org/25-lighting...box-light.html

A pair of 80/100 watt H-4s is $20. A pair of relays is about $10. Add $5 worth of wire and a pair of ceramic plugs and the whole deal is under $50.

No lenses to smoke over or leak water, and when a bulb goes out, it's $10. Not another $800.

The same amount of light, if not more, just not quite as white.
