LED Headlight

Guys and Gals,

On occasion, I search the Forum looking for options for a LED, direct replacement headlight. Over the years I've gotten a ton of LED light Bulb suggestions, but not an actual LED light. I ride a 2009 Classic, and I don't have the mechanical skill to do a true modification, but I can certainly switch out a light inside a bucket. So if anyone has had success finding and installing a direct replacement LED headlight, I would love to hear about it.

LED Headlight

I went with the Cyclops H4 10K Ultra.

Make SURE you check your alignment after you install it though! It really is plug-n-play!

You're looking to replace lens and all, I'm assuming. Don't quote me on this, but if the classic has the 7" light, you might be able to find a direct replacement on eBay with adjustment ring. I have seen daymaker style listed with a ring on eBay for the 7" all day long. Don't know that it fits the Vulcan, but if you've got a 5-3/4" like myself, just kick rocks, I guess.

Sometimes you find diamonds in the ashes of your previous endeavors and losses.

Hello SirMickey as you can tell I did some research on the matter and I cuoldn't find a direct replacemnet per se , but there are many headlights that will fit with different degrees of modification , I'm going to try with the Sunpie 7" headlight as soon as I buy it and try to fit it I'll post my results , good luck .

I bought


last July and it has worked very well. Install was easy 'cept I found I could not reuse the rubber boot. I don't ride in much rain, so I can't testify as to water intrusion, but I have not had a problem and reviews all seem to agree it is not a problem. Easy to aim the beam, too, if you follow a good procedure.

Cool Austinrick. Do you see an obvious improvement in distance and spread?
