    Here is a link to the updated comparison of the forward lighting offerings (headlights and passing lamps) from Truck-Lite Company and J.W. Speaker Corporation (JW makes the HD branded LEDs).

    This now includes passing lamp offerings from each, and an revised headlamp from TL.

    Hope this helps.

    Comments appreciated.

    Yep-

    The CD item # is 2261...

    But you need to determine if they are shipping the Phase 5 or Phase 6...

    The manufacturer choose to use the same item number for the Phase 6 as they did for the Phase 5 :dknow, so any distributor will need to actually open the box to be able to tell the difference...

    I have a Road Glide that has the dual H4 lights. I converted to a true HID lighting system. Finding a place to mount the ballasts was truly a challenge. You'd think there's a ton of room under there but that's simply not the case. I fabbed a bracket from the 4 bolts holding the fairing assemby and formed and curved it to the contour of the inner. Granted I had to drill 2 holes on the inner fairing but (Edit). I wanted more LIGHT.. Period. Well.. I got what I wanted for $60.00 plus a little of my time a couple of hours. I got the light kit on Ebay at " HID Direct" It is listed as "BI-XENON HID Complete KIT HI/LO H4 Motorcycle Bike MOTO" This is a HI/LOW kit with BOTH Bulbs. They use a electro magnet to move the bulb in its socket. This is sweet. I can see everything.... WELL! The system uses much less power than the stock lights and is waterproof also. I liked the lights so well that I bought a set for my truck and the O'ladys car.

    Great Info. What size are your glass envelopes (5-3/4", 7" etc).
    Were the ballasts the "mini Ballasts" or the full size Bosch units. What color temp did you select for the HID capsules (4500, 6000 etc). Tks!
