  1. Yes! The first of many (hopefully) how to videos. Great job. And awesome suit, Stewart.

  2. Kevin seems like a very nice guy. That is a sexy motorcycle he has there as well. Good job on the upgraded lighting !

  3. I like seeing something different here and there. I’m never disappointed with one of your videos

  4. *Thanks for this inside look at a retrofit.* Harley-Davidson factory-installs the J. W. Speaker 8700 in 2014-up FLH Touring models (viz., the FLHTCU, FLHTK, FLHX, and FLHR); I anticipate that a Truck-Lite six-diode model with two twist-lock flasher provisions will be used for the fleet-only FLHP and FLHTP (the smaller FLTR, and likely FLTP, headlights, installed in pairs on a frame-mount fairing, are subcontracted to Truck-Lite for 2016-up).

  5. I have a 2001 suzuki bandit that seems to have a (female) 6 pin connector. This lamp seems to have three large pins. Is there some sort of adapter I can buy to connect the two? Does anyone know?

  6. Was the demonstration low beam or high beam? Why no comparison? Thanks. Just curious.

  7. hi sirennet by any chance do you know if this headlight would work with stock 2017 kawasaki vulcan 900 custom? or would I need to buy a bezel kit?
