Would like some recommendations for an LED headlight with bucket which would be a plug and play by simply swapping out what I have now.
TIA

No that's a 7" that would be really big on a dog you need a 5-3/4.

If your headlight housing is in good shape just get the sunpie 5-3/4" on Amazon and take out your lense and plug this one in and off you go. Only about $40

Thanks, unfortunately the bucket doesn't come apart but I found this bucket with H bulb and lens on Amazon.
Just don't know if it's plug and play.

The bucket will come apart -- it might be a pain in the ass but it will.
If its a stock bucket the 2 stupid set screws on the bottom might strip out if not careful.
My first K-9 I drilled out the set screw and kept the beauty ring installed with a little clear silicone.

I used the stock bucket but replace the headlight with a Hog Lightz unit and I love it. It works awesome!

Big Dog makes a special tool for removing the headlight ring. It has three prongs in a triangle configuration with a square adapter in the center that your 3/8 ratchet extension will fit in. Just don’t forget to remove the setscrew at the bottom.

Almost built one of them years ago (my own design) but I figured I'd never spend that much time inside the HL bucket.
I can count on my finger the number of times I've had to fight with those rings and now that I got rid of the stock bucket never again will it be a problem on my bike.
The headwinds is much easier especially when you're on the road and a bulb goes out.

That’s the truth! Headwinds makes some great products.
