    BTW, whatever you buy, make sure the color temp matches. It will look funny if you have very white aux lights and a slightly cooler headlight. It will look a bit more yellow!!

      Are the truck-lites (27270C) the same as the Kury Phase 7? If not, what's the diff? I have a friend who has the Kury's. I agree a lot of light I agree (was impressed). Honestly I really don't care about halos on the headlight, just on the passing lamps. I want them for the passing lamps for added visibility during the day, without having to turn on the passing lamps on (halos connected to running lights). I want the lights to match at night as far as warmth goes. Sure I'd like to spend @ $125 for the whole thing, but am willing to spend more if its worth it. I don't want to change them again because I'll have to remove my fairing to replace my current headlight to get to the headlight screws (a big pain).

        Kuryakyn doesn't make lights, they buy Trucklites & slap the Kury label on the TL box.
        I've actually peeled the label off a Kury box to verify this & they ARE TruckLite units.
        They just charge extra for the sticker, like about $100.

      Ok...so this may seem a silly question. With our bikes they have a low/high beam. Light comes on when bikes running.

      Do the halo lights have to be wired separate? Does the halo glow during day riding and then turn the low/high on or is it halo on all the time with low/high accompanying?

        What the halo adds to the headlight is daytime visibility. This is not needed on the Aux lights unless you just like the look.

        The Truck-lite and Phase 7 are basically the same light. Walk out in front of your buddy's bike, off to the side like you're a car pulled up at a side street. Then walk closer and note at what point does the headlight become a hole. This is what the car driver will see (or not see!) as the bike is approaching. If you can live with this, then buy the Truck-lite.

        If not, look for a Halomaker, similar to the Hogworkz set.

          Trucklites are good lights. The jeep guys buy them all day long. When I had my 2014 jeep with halogens the trucklites were gonna go on it but i had read a bunch of forums about hardly any heat on the lense. This was a problem in cold climates and a danger in slush / wet snow storms here in Canada. I have a 2017 with stock led and wow now I can see!!! I have a cheap amazon 5 3/4" led for a sportster on my xs chopper and its bright. If money wasnt an option, hands down Trucklites all the way!

            Anyone use these? I know they are expensive Chinese lights, but supposedly they're spec'd by a US company.
            The 8700BG3 is the newest and brightest 7" LED headlight available. It outputs 33% more light than the Generation II with a wider beam pattern. It comes with a clean black finish to complement your bike. Easy plug and play installation with a industry standard H4. EAGLE LIGHTS QUALITY - The best Eagle Lights 7" LED hea

                Finally, got these...

                https://www.amazon.com/NTHREEAUTO-Pr...=pd_gw_cr_simh

                Actually seems pretty sturdy. For $68 bucks, so far I'm impressed. Nothing connected yet and got that little voice on the back of my mind "you get what you pay for". I took the headlight ring off the roadstar and removed the old headlight, and installed the new head light into the ring. It fit better than the previous one (whcih I replaced the stock light with an Adjure one Eons agoi, which was a little too small and loose and and had to shim it). Anyway, I now have to worry about wiring all the halos.

                ​​​​​​I need to connect the halos on the passing lamps, I was hoping i could tie in to the running lights of the turn signals. WDYT? Anyone know what color wire it is? Same color for both sides?

                Also, need to wire halo for the headlight. Where do you suggest i tap into for that? Thanks!

                  This is what I want for my outside halo lights. But don't know where to find them.

                    Kuryakyn, I think had something like that at one time. Might check Custom Dynamics as well. That might be a lighted passing light retainer ring as opposed to a halo on the passing lamp. Hopefully make me a bit more visible without having to constantly run the passing lamps all the time.

                        I think this was the set I put on.
                        The light is not the same as incandescent . It takes a little getting use to.

                      Will look at this. Click image for larger version

                        Other than more visibility what are the benefits, less current draw, longer life?
