  • What is the best headlight?

    I am trying to find out based on everyones own experience what headlight is the best. Halogen, LED, HID etc. Also brand. And what fits in the stock headlight bezel. Please post links and any photos of your own setup or what you would like to have if possible. Thanks everyone.

    I don't have any personal experience, but IIRC, a lot of members here swear by TruckLite. It's an HID LED combo similar to the new Harley HID lamp. I'm sure someone will chime in.

            I went with this setup and am really happy with it.

            i did have to change the passinging lamphousing rings to fit the passing lamp but it just depends on what passing lamp set up you have. I had the stock Yamaha light bar. I ordered these housing https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1. I ended up just using my stock housings with the ordered housings trim rings and it works great.

              I swapped my stock H4 headlight for a Sylvania Silverstar H4 & it was a huge improvement.
              Next thing I did was swap out the Silverstar H4 for a Sunpie LED Daymaker clone from ebay.
              Wow, that sucker is WHITE and very bright.
              Razor sharp cutoff too, very nice pattern with good ground coverage.

              Then swapped out the crappy HD stock spotlight bulbs with the matching Sunpie LED spots.
              Bike now looks like a 747 landing at night. LOL

              The headlight was $70 for a PAIR of them so I had a spare for my other bike.
              The spots were only $40 shipped.

                Check out Rivco for a headlight bulb. I have one in my 02 roadstar and love it.

                  I have tried several types but ended up with Trucklights. Love them (have on two bikes) especially with the cut off level line. If your housing does not have a center barrier, then you cannot get a good cut off line and the light will shine up into oncoming traffic. The only downside is they are so dim looking in the daytime, that oncoming traffic will barely see the light, so I run daytime with my brights on. That works well.

                  On fitting the stock headlight housing, there was a small space between the light and the housing which I filled using a small diameter vacuum hose.
