I purchased knockoff Daymaker through Aliexpress two years ago for $60NZ, still going good on our rough roads! Vision is not so good when going around corners (plenty of them, too) on low beam though, so I ride on high beam all the time...except on the occasional straight with on-coming traffic. H-D Daymaker costs $650NZ here.

I got the Hogworkz headlight kit from Dennis Kirk about a year ago for my Fatbob headlight housing and they work great. Much more than Amazon but much much less than the HD version at $200 for a set of two. The pattern is great with good cutoff. High beam projects pretty far. The LED lens housing needs to be trimmed a hair for the bezel to fit correctly but they are fine for now. I went with DK over Amazon just for the ease of return if I didn't like them or had any issues with them.

What lens housing are you using with the H4 conversion? Did your bike have a replaceable bulb, or was it originally a sealed beam?

I purchased a LED headlight off of Ebay for $60 and installed it over a year ago and have had zero problems. I've had a lot of people comment on how ridiculously bright it is and asked me where I got it. When I tell them Ebay and how much it was their jaws usually drop
