    Just the inside. The sunpie will replace the stock clear H4 halogen bulb housing. The chrome bucket itself you won’t need to do anything to. Just make sure you take your time, make sure the notch on the light is at 3 o’clock or it’ll be a little crooked in the bucket. Make sure you’re extra careful with the set screw for th bezel. I messed mine up

    Any pics ? If it’s any brighter than a day maker it’s gotta be ridiculous. I’d like to see yours if you don’t mind.

    I too would be really interested in that -- the only thing I had that was brighter than my daymaker was my HID when used with the CandlePower lens/reflector. But that didn't have good high beam -- low was GREAT -- high beam was useless.
    The Daymaker is a great low beam and a great high beam -- Haven't been this happy with a high beam since my first bike that had a 100W high beam (but I don't think it was DOT approved) was also a 6 1/2" headlight (springer size).

    Ronnie actually got to see the daymaker today so if the bulbs I passed along don't work, he knows what the daymaker can do.

    Nice to actually met another member today! Have met very very few in all my time here and still only ever ridden with 1 so far.

    Ok so I'm interested now WHAT IS IT? Where can I get it?
    Can you post a pic of the beam pattern on the road rather than a pic of the lamp (much more informative!)
    thanks

    I may give them a go. Soon as the weather breaks and if not satisfied with the daymaker.
