Head light upgrade

Has anyone upgraded a stock head light to a head light with an LED lamp?
I have a 2007 Big Dog K9 with an EHC system. The stock head light has a 55/60 W H4 bulb. I want to install an after market head light assembly and replace its lamp and lamp holder with a brighter LED set up to see farther at night. Would like any input from any attempts made sucessful or not.
Thanks Bros!

Hey Dean, get yourself a Sunpie 5 3/4 led headlight on Amazon. Quite a few of us run that light and have had good luck with them, they are bright, look nice and don't cost a lot. I have the black one on my 07K9 and the chrome on my bagger. Follow that link that mjsk9 put up and you will find out everything you want to know.

Thanks for the response. I'm shifting through the information.
The rest of the story:
As part of my customization I have my mind set on a custom headlight (see attached pics). I need to change the lamp sockets out alowing me get the added lighting and dependability of an LED. I understand increasing the wattage above 55W is fatal to the ignition system. Any ideas to help me get this installed would help.

The wolf headlight will hold the LED bulb, like Shannon stated.
I have this light, and I can eat 2 things very confidently about it.
1. It looks really cool.
2. It’s light distribution absolutely blows.

If you primarily ride daylight hours, or in groups, it’s great. But riding solo in the dark makes you wish you went with the Daymaker.

What is everyone's opinion on the daymaker on a big dog? I have them on my deluxe, which also includes the spotlights. With all 3 on, it is amazing! With just the main headlight on, it is ok, but not earth-shattering. In fact, I seldom use high beam, because I feel I can see better at low beam as the spotlights turn off when switching to high beam.

Tilt it down a bit and run it on high beam all the time. Very seldom will anyone flash their lights at me.

Not sure what year model your Deluxe is but on my 2014 Ultra Limited I had the ECM flashed and my driving lights stay on when I turn on my high beam. It's a five minute job at the dealer. They didn't even charge me to do it.

Yeah, I wondered about that. My deluxe is an '05. I think that may be a law that the spotlights have to turn off on high beam, not that it might be strictly enforced. It used to belong to a very good friend who was killed when he hit a deer. I bought it and restored it. Since it was totaled, I had to have an R title. I needed to have an enhanced inspection. At that inspection, the guy told me that one of the things he checks for is if the spotlights turn off on high beam. If it is an easy job to keep them on, I would be interested in doing that.
