I have been looking at replaceing my headlight with something different. I see sizes of 4.5″, 5 3/4″, 6″, and 7″ I know the RK and ST have 7″ headlights that are obviously bigger than mine. What size do I have on my bike? How do I measure, the dia of the houseing or the glass or what?

I mean the bucket. With the right mounting block I can make anything fit. I wanted to get an idea of what might look good as far as size goes.

I am pretty sure stock is 4 3/4,I bought a visor from the dealer for my fxdl and i like it,But i think all the bigger ones look better if you go with the running lights to,if not with the running lights i light the stock with the visor,35 bucks at the dealer.

You know that once you replace that light it will lead to a lot of other mods. It’s a sickness.[sm=biker.gif]

Well actually I want to make a light bar like those on the softails to fit my bike and I want it to look proportional. In looking at the passing lamp clamps for the dyna’s that Harley came out with just don’t look good and it isn’t balanced looking. So I want a larger headlight, basically large enough to take up most if not all the space between the fork tubes and trees. I then plan on makeing a custom mounting system much like that of the softails and roadking to mount windshield, and lightbar on.

So I know I want something larger than my stock bucket and probably something smaller than the ones found on the RK.

kind of off topic but once you find a new light I would be interested in your old one. I have an older FXD with the visor mount bucket and am not a fan of it.I want to change to a bottom mount on my lower triple tree.
