    So Eric (Th3infamaous1) suggested this headlight to me a few months back.. finally got around to ordering it and not only does it look better just sitting in place, it seems to be quite a bit brighter and kinda gives you a straight solid flat line beam to work with.. way to go and cheers to Eric!

    Have to agree I put one in alicias ironhorse very bright and gives the headlight a more modern cleaner look than the original:old2:

    LOVE Amazon. If you sign up for Prime you get free 1-2 day shipping, free movies and specials no one else sees. I order 90% of everything I buy from them. I've never had a problem returning something and they usually pay the return shipping and as soon as it's picked up they refund your money. Fook running all over town looking for something when you can find it cheaper and within 10 minutes on Amazon..... I just ordered an air filter for the Jaguar for $15 that Auto zone wanted $45 for and it will be here Tuesday. I also get my oil change kit for $47 with 4qts V-Twin oil, new plug rings and a K&N filter.

    I even order pantry boxes from them to fill my pantry. Their prices are as low as Walmart. Did I say I love Amazon? And wait until you install the light.... WoW.... Get yer sunglasses out!

    About 6 years ago I ordered a fairing bolt and nut kit that was supposed to be oem fitment for my CBR, got it in and it was junk and was unable to use 7/8 of it. Left a bad taste in my mouth so I steered clear of Amazon up until now for this. My wife uses it every now and then, but I wasn't interested in it and just stuck with Ebay.. so I'll be giving them another run after this amazing head light.. lol

    That Daymaker is an unreal LED. I've had sport bikes for years and my only gripe ever with the K9 was the lack of headlight. I did the HID when they came out, that was a bit better but caused huge issues. Then I went to the LED that Curtis has, that was nice and bright but still single bulb. I just got the daymaker (at Eric's recommendation as well) and it's unreal bright.

    And ditto @BadDawg Bill I love Amazon as well. Easy to find stuff, pricing is always right in line with anywhere else, Prime shipping is awesome. Short these big box retailers!

    Yeah really wish I would have had it when I went to Dallas a few weeks ago after he recommended I should get one a few weeks prior to that.. we rode in the dark for about 2 hours and having that light would have been great!
