Any input would be appreciated.
I am considering either of these. Need to have some more lighting up front. Would love to light the road directly in front but also fill the sides a bit for a wider lighting pattern.

DayMakers:
and they need these so I can mount to the engine guard:

OR
Custom Dynamics:

I don’t have any experience with these products but I have used several CD products and am currently running their Trubeam headlight on my Raider and had their running lights on my highway bar, took them off for some more industrial looking Rigid LEDs.

Of those two choices I would go with Custom Dynamics every time.

I have the Harley Fogs and I think they are pretty decent but would love to see what these two look like side by side. Otherwise it definitely lights up the sides pretty well.

Great question! I’ve been thinking about adding the Custom Dynamics myself.

I've used Custom Dynamics lights on my last three Harleys! Can't go wrong...

I have the Harley lights on my bike, absolutely love them. I also use a lot of Custom Dynamics products and like them. I guess it would come down to price. The Harley of course are plug and play, very simple to install, I’m not familiar with CD for this particular product.

Not on your list but you might consider these. Just put Clearwater Darlas on my limited. Quality lights and they are bright for their size.

It was a little more involved than I thought it would be. Definitely getting to know my bike.

I went with the Harley Daymakers, but instead of the engine guard mounts, I went with the fairing mount option and Custom Dynamics Ringz with smoked lenses in the turn signals. Lights up the front pretty well, and the fog lamps add a decent amount of throw off to the sides. Still considering adding some down on the forks so I have some extra lighting down low.

Whenever someone ask me what I would choose between HD lights and CD lights, I ask them if they prefer to have a 1 year warranty or a lifetime warranty? Then the choice seems pretty simple after that.

I have the HD Daymaker Reflector LED fog lamps mounted on the fairing. They are paired with the CD LED turn signals/running lights. They do a nice job and integrate nicely. I have some CD aux lights on my Slim and I actually think they light up a little better.

You probably already know this, but just in case you don't .... always mount the fog lights as low as is practical, whereas driving lights would be most effective up on the fairing. One thing's for sure, they'll see you coming!

I second this motion. Even buying the chrome caps for mine, They're still a great deal. Pricey yes, but good ain't cheap and cheap ain't good.
Good morning, were you able to use a HD switch on the panel or the supplied switch with lights? Curious about that. I have the HD lights on the engine guard want these for the forks. Like using the HD switches though. Curious of how they wired up. Looking at the site haven't found the instruction manual on them yet.

Previous post from close to 6 years ago talks about how I had the previous set wired up. I used the HD switches I added to the left side of the fork lock and used one of the feeds from the harness I bought to power these.
