    I was never a fan of the "look" of the daymakers, but I bought one, since I'm not in my 20's anymore, I noticed my night vision isn't what it used to be, and I've hit a 4 legger on a bike and it's not fun. When I first put it on I was still not a fan....then I took it out at night. I don't think I'll ever use anything else, what a huge difference!! It's grown on me while sitting still, that it doesn't bother me nearly as much as it used to

    Do I have to register it or anything like that? I ordered another one because I really like it and I'm hoping it doesn't happen again but if I can get another one I'll be happy as can be

    No register required I think you can start the claim through Amazon directly.

    I hope it doesn't happen either.

    Another guy on here had one that got water behind it and got a replacement shipped to him that week. but he had it on an uncovered trailer during a monsoon here in TX for about 300 miles. Kind of a rare situation, as I don't anticipate anyone would have ridden in that kind of rain, and surely wouldn't have done a full day in hard rain.

    On Amazon? No. Just order it, and it'll ask for your address and info when you checkout.

    You can see the area around the 9:00 position. It's also starting around the 3 but doesn't show up.

    Strange...hasnt happened to either of mine. I'd start a claim process for a new one..

    Sorry guys, for those that are having trouble I was hoping this was a good affordable solution. Think we got more good than bad ones overall but still annoying for some folks. I suppose if you want to splurge you buy the official LED with glass which are around $400.

    I got 6500 miles on this one looks like I just got it..

    No need to apologize at all. It is awesome and of course there's gonna be some bad apples. But overall it is the best light I've ever seen. Amazon has them down to 45. I ordered a new one and wrote amazon about the old one. They freely gave me my money back. I made sure I expressed I was pleased with it and sometimes things just happen.

    I found it on Amazon, thanks for the information! I wonder how these compare to a HID set up? I went with HID over LED on my Electraglide, and the reason that I did that is because I can keep a spare bulb with me when I go on a trip. With these LED's, if they go out far from home, how easy will it be to get a replacement? I believe that I'd be ok with one of these on my Pitbull though, because I don't see myself on a long trip with the hard tail.

    Ker has a solution for that with the turn signal replacements should be enough light to get you home.
    I'll see if I can find the link.

    You could just carry the regular H4 with ya, but the round trim ring is a bitch. The Wolf headlight is easy peasy to change the bulb if needed, but the daymaker won't work in that design.

    Yeah, so many options. Just wondering how everyone is doing with the LED's, are they lasting a good bit, anyone having any problems with pre-mature failures?
