Update: I see now (5/7/17) they are down to $147 at the eBay link below. Wow...and they have a "make an offer" so it's actually even cheaper than that. Dollar for Dollar one of the best upgrades you can do!



Update 2 (9/8/19) here they are on Amazon at $130 ish


OK, so I've read multiple references about the chinese daymakers and how some are actually decent units. Looking on eBay they mostly are all the same product....most of them utilize some of the same product pictures which tell me they are mostly coming from one of if not the same manufacturer.



So with this in mind....I found one of the cheaper units on eBay and did some research....I found that even though they were asking like $225 ish, (and have sold 38 sets for road glides so far, with only positive reviews) they had a "Make an offer" button. And while perusing there reviews I round one guy who had gotten them for $190.00.



So being the cheap bastard I am I put in a offer for $190. It had two days before it expired which would have been about two hours from now. I just checked on eBay and while they had not responded to my buy it now.....they DID send me a new listing with a "sale" price.



$183.59 (Edit: The price has gone down since this was written.....offer them like $150 or $160 and see what they say!)



Yep, cheaper than I'd asked for and almost $40 cheaper than the next cheapest listing....so yeah, I bought it. It says they have 9 sets left....and there ARE people selling these exact same units for over $300.



I'm gonna update this thread once I get them on and I'll review them then, but in the meanwhile if anyone is interested....for as long as it lasts...here is the link.



This is THE cheapest price I've ever seen for these.



1set Dual LED Headlight Assembly for Harley Davidson Road Glide Hi Lo Beam 90W | eBay



Edit: I'm now seeing them for as cheap as $140 (link below) by all apparences these are the same units..... They've sold over 50 with no complaints

Offer up a cheaper price and let me know what you get them for and I'll update this thread!



Edit: there are several "install tips" throughout the thread....I wrote one of them on post 52.



here are some pics

Got one! Paid for it by selling take-off parts from the Mustang (so it didn't really cost anything ;) ). Once it shows up, I'll install it when I pull off the fairing to add an amp.

I see the headlight bezel fit remained the same. That was my one big concern because of my custom paint color. Thanks for posting the pic

Yeah, I was worried about that as well with the custom bezel that I have. It took some maneuvering but was able to make it work! Just a word of advise on the install of the lights: mount the bracket and then the fairing into the bike. Then snap the new headlights into the fairing. I first tried with the lights in the fairing first and tried mounting the fairing on the hooks and was a big pain in the a$$. Having the lights out first helps getting the fairing on the hooks!

So how is the quality of lighting as compared to the halogens? High/low beam? Are they actually 5 1/4 round lights or are they slightly oval? Mine is a '80 Tour Glide which I'm not certain as to how differently the newer bikes headlight mounts are. When I upgraded from the original incandescents to automotive (Sylvania) halogens they fit fine. Obviously (or maybe not) they are sealed beam units. Thanks in advance.

Mine showed up yesterday. I'll install this weekend. I've got a few other things to do while I have the fairing apart.

Few more pics.
If this instal goes well, and your happy with the improvement I am going to pull the trigger.
One question, Why did you choose this particular brand, price, bulb numbers?
