7" Headlight
« on: Today at 05:45:49 AM »
Anyone make a recent 7" headlight conversion?

My stock light burnt out, running on high beam at the moment. Instead of simply buying another 5 3/4" sealed beam considering making the jump to a 7".

Ja ja... not legal in the US-DOT. Got it.

Looking for recommendations for a reputable seller and any "oh shites" to watch out for during the install.

In advance, Danke. (To include any snark ;)

I have not heard of a bad 7" light up grade.
 Depends on what you like.
 I like being able to replace a small bulb . Others like a sealed beam.
 After using two different 7" kits....easy enough to install.

A select few have had to elongate screw mounting holes to properly aim the light, but mine was perfect out of the box.  If you find yourself having to mess with those infamous "W"-clips, wear eye protection!
