    Gentsvmax, Very interested in doing some type of upgrade like this, almost half my riding is done when it is dark out. I've heard the Daymaker makes a big difference from the Harley crowd. Do you have part #'s. Do you have any problems with on coming traffic with the low beam? Any information would be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance!

    Hi, yea for sure no flashing, in fact I can stand say ten, twenty feet in front of this light and look right into it! On the bike the light has a really wide left and right side spread for turning and one hell of a long bright high beam, you won't out run this light. I'll get you that HD part# when I get to my garage. The guy I got it from did tell me even before I bought it from him, pretty honest, that the after market Daymaker look alike's can be just as bright, they just don't stand up to the vibration of a Harley. No worries there with the Vmax. I do know of a look alike with a white halo, those look cool but are not at all bright. This was an easy mod, the flat back panel style light is well secured in the old school clamp style bucket.

    I also have high output bulbs and ceramic sockets for your stock light.

    The L.E.D. Daymaker, Bikemaster and the H.I.D.s I have used really look cool, especially that Daymaker and put out great light. Now my brother has an old Kawisaki police bike and an unmolested Vmax, both running an incandescent high wattage bulb. I.M.H.O., those are a brighter light and it seem's the color is a more natural light that doesn't take a"getting used too".

    one2dmax, What do you carry and recommend if staying with the stock light bucket? I am in the process of buying a used bucket to see what it would take to modify it to accept a "daymaker" type LED assembly. In your opinion is the light output of the high output bulbs comparable to the LED types? I prefer to keep the stock look if and as much as possible but there has to be a way to get a higher light output. Thanks in advance for any info!

    The stock bulb is a 55/60 watt setup. Our high output setup is a 90/130 (and a few 100/140) watt bulbs so a LOT more light. That creates heat which is why we have ceramic sockets to replace the stock plastic one. It's cheaper (at $40) and easier to install. I have also done a few LED conversions including some halo kits. Some of the daymaker stuff if they have a large back require significant mod to the bucket and I have hear some even use silicon to hold them all in place.
