    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?

    I need another bulb and lense suggestion. I just killed my 2nd daymaker. First fogged up. 2nd blinks on and turns off immediately. I just got the ehc replaced so I think my old one killed it.

    Check with Mike Manson, he just bought a pair of the ones that Dentdude posted and he was looking to sell the 1 since they come in pairs.

    Ill check them out for sure. I ordered another daymaker last night as soon as I found out it wasn’t working. I wanna try to a clear lense if I go that route.

    I've had my Adjure for a long time now. But if it goes out and needs replacement, I'm getting a Daymaker. That sucker is bright. I could tell at the Gathering in my rear view mirrors when a Daymaker was behind us. They are very noticeable :):old2::old2:

    I just installed mine yesterday. Finally have good light. I've always liked the look of the daymaker when Harley first started using them.
