Loony....are you talking about the HD orange/white wire? I don't have a 04' wiring schematic but I assume it is the same as 06'.

If so...that wire is utilized for international models only. So you could have cut that wire clean and not worried about it.

no, on the back of the dogeye there is a red wire (brake) and orange wire (run), along with the bulb blank for turn signal and earth. The orange one had detached from its solder joint on the circuit board.

We in the UK have to have: red run light(on contstantly), red brake light(brighter) and orange turn signal.

I contacted radiazntz to see about exchanging it and they said they would send me out a new one! This is very good CS.

Although I have bodged the repair I will replace it with the new one when it arrives, dont really want to take any risks with signals. I will post the damaged one back to them. At least they could repair it and sell it on.

Ahhh, ok....that makes sense. Glad to hear you didn't have any issues getting an exchange!

Thought I'd snap a pic of the difference between the stock setup and the Radiantz LEDs with smoked covers. They are very snug in the housing. I too can vouch for their customer service. One of my LEDs did not work properly and they sent a replacement out right away. Happy customer.

Yea, I should have said I got my replacement dogeye in the post a few days ago, I have to say this is outstanding service and a lot of companys could learn from radiantz CS.

Very pleased all round and now my brother and father want to do the same thing.

I have an 09 Iron 883 (XL883N). I replaced the rear bulbs with the Jam Strait ones. look neat. do you guys know if I'd need a load equalizer for the front bulbs? I was thinking of getting some amber ones, and they seem to accept the same 1157 bulb.

I just got my bike, a couple of months ago. and already began to customize it bits. Someone recommended this forum and so far it's the best I've seen.
