I put these on from SoCalMotorGear on my 13 RGU and loved them. I see they have a slightly cheaper newer version about to come out on their website.

$50.00
That's per bulb.
Is it just the bulb change out or the whole headlight bezel?

I'd recommend the Chicom Ebay Daymakers, I have the real Harley Davidson Daymakers and bought them right when they came out! Makes a HUGE difference in night riding, you'll be able to see EVERYTHING! Better projection with these Chicom Bezel than swapping bulbs out to LED versions.

I don't know as I never had the daymakers but a few of my buddies have the fake daymakers and alway comment on how bright my Fuelmoto LED's are

Check out Stark LED's on Amazon. I run them in my F150 and my wife's impala. Had them in my previous bike. Have yet to change over to my RG yet but will be soon. Run about 34.00 per bulb. I do agree they are incredibly bright and light up on the sides as well. However distant projection is compromised a bit from traditional halogens like Ultrastars

I tried the Starks, but replaced them with something even better.

LED 9003 Bulbs - Daymaker Performance on the CHEAP!

Equally bright with a much better pattern. I like them better than the stock LEDs on my '16. One of these days, I'll have to shine them both up on my garage door to demonstrate.

They're bright because you're running a LED bulb in a non projector style housing causing light to splatter in every direction instead of focusing it down the road lol. The Chicom LED are in a projector style lens focusing all the light output in the direction you need it lol.

Whatever the case may be, I have more than ample light in the direction I need. And again my buddies always say they are brighter than the fake daymakers

That was the issue I was having with the Starks. They have a triangular emitter pattern (as do the Fuelmotos) that does not resemble the original incandescent bulbs at all.

However, the ones I replaced them with...

On eBay:
2x H4 HB2 9003 180W CSP LED Headlight Kit Hi-Low Beam 6500K Bulbs 18000lm Lamp
Probably equivalent to these on Amazon:
NIGHTEYE H4 LED Headlight Conversion Driving lamp Bulbs 6500K Cool White 50W 8000LM Hi/Lo Beam

...more closely resemble the incandescent bulb filaments they are replacing and give a near-perfect beam pattern. As I've said, I like them better than the stock headlights on my Rushmore shark.
