    Suffice to say it's not the same quality of the Harley one and it's about 1/8th the cost. With that said however most of us that haven't had any issues and those that have had issues seemed to be defective units from the start and failed pretty soon after purchase <30 days which were replaced under warranty.

    Regardless of quality everyone seems to appreciate the light.

    I have 8000 miles on one light and no issues. And 2500 miles on my other bike no issues either.

    I have had mine in for a couple weeks now and hadn't ridden at night until just now. It def does a good job. As for as durability IDK. If it went out as whole that would suck but I believe it has like 5 or so leds in it so if just one went out you could def make it. It was a perfect fit, only trimmed the rubber gasket because it was stretched and deformed. Yea I seen those blinkers the other day someone put up with the white lights, they look cool.

    I just got these, but the ends are for the 1157 bulbs, so I ordered some JST connectors, I will let ya know how it turns out, my good buddy Ker has them and when I saw them in person they are bad ass! I think along with the Daymaker headlight they should light things up well.

    I didn't get them for night time driving necessarily, but more for blinding on coming traffic during the day:oldeek: too soon:oldhardlaugh::oldhardlaugh::sorry:no I ain't :oldlaugh:

    When I got them years ago, they where plug n play

    Maybe you ordered them from Andrew? I remember back when he had his website he had them for sale maybe he added the connector?

    IMG_3550.JPG IMG_3551.JPG the daymaker is a nice bright light I put one in alicias ironhorse but there is one other option that I put in the k9 it's considerably brighter and is not a whole assembly just a bulb which fits very tight and will not bounce around like others have had it comes in pairs only so if you partner up with someone it's only $50-$55 each I rode with it at night last night and I was extremely impressed and happy with it. I shoulda gotten a pic last night but didn't think of
    It
