Default 7in LED Headlight on a 1200C

So I did this for a couple of reasons...

1. I didn't like the look of the 5 1/4in stock light it looks small (IMO)
2. I wanted more light
3. I didn't want to spend a PILE of money on the Harley LED light..

It was easy to install I just de-pined the factory connector and removed the wiring that came with 7in headlight. I did have to trim the corner of the bracket to clear the steering stop. (easy task with a dremel) overall I like the 7in headlight it makes the bike look bigger and more stout! The headlight bucket was $59 and the TRUCKLIGHT 7in LED was $169. the 5 1/4in HARLEY LED is not as bright as the 7in Version. Plus its OVER-Priced

Looks good. I did the same thing but I bought the day maker from Harley and then overkilled it with the day maker auxilery lamps as well.

Thanks. I want to do the same thing. I was thinking of using a side mount bucket but that looks nice. No problem fitting the TruckLite headlight?
