I just installed this light: Amazon.com: SKTYANTS 7 Inch led Headlight DRL (Left/Right) Turn Signal Lights for Motorcycle Harley Davidson: Automotive

Anyone else try it? I figured I couldn't go wrong for 46 bucks, worst case it would suck and I'd just send it back.

I really like the way it freshens up the look of the front of my ride (I know, this is personal taste and many will hate it).

My biggest worry was that it would be light the drop in replacement "H4" LED bulbs, and give a terribly beam pattern, blind oncoming drivers, and have terrible distance projection, but I found the opposite.
Low beam is brighter, and with a sharper cutoff edge than the OE H4. Long distance projection seems better too, though I haven't done a ton of night riding to get a detailed impression.
High beam slightly better than the H4 high beam, with the stronger low beam LEDs plus another couple of LEDs to fill in above the lowbeam cutoff.

DRL and integrated turn signals are nice! In the daytime the combination of the DRL plus lowbeam is much more visible than the H4 for oncoming cars.

Not the best photos, sun is at the worst angle right now.

Headlight part was plug and play, DRL and turns required a tiny bit of rewiring.
Mounted right up with no modifications by combining the original outer chrome ring with the inner two-piece sandwich clamp mount from an EMGO Kawasaki Kz headlamp retaining ring kit i grabbed off ebay for 20 bucks.
