I was getting jealous of the HD guys in my neighborhood, so I put an LED Headlight on my M2. I ordered it from eagle lights - a 7" Generation III W/ halo. It fit inside the stock bucket with no problems, literally a 20 min install. Resulted in a cool, subtle update to the look of the bike, and significantly brighter headlight (you don't dare look this thing straight on, even in the middle of the day).

Ring is there, wiring is simple plug and play...Everything very standard.If theres an issue ,the guys at eagle lights handle it... I went a different route and didn't spend the big coin but my M2 no longer runs a 7in,which is the same as alot of Harley models Jeeps older camaros and more....

I mean I don’t think you’d go wrong with that light, brother - I do like the full “halo” mine has, though..
- Eagle Lights had been recommended to me by several folks, and it’s strongly suspected they actually make the HD Day breaker and HD just re-brands it for more money. Eagle has great customer service (not that you’ll need it) And the price for the Generation 3 has very reasonable -

$36 shipped! disappointed I didn't see that before they took it off of amazon haha. I would've grabbed one. I never really ride at night to be worried about the light output, but I wouldn't mind something so worn and dated looking.

Well, for what it's worth here's the particular on I used:

https://www.eaglelights.com/products/eagle-lights- 7-round-led-generation-iii-black

(You don't need any of the fixins', just the basic light)

Oh and I forgot to mention - Eagle has a lifetime warranty if you register your product with them!

Ok so after reading,watching vids and such I learned a few things. Start with ignoring the specs of these Chinese knockoffs. Its all about the beam pattern.These Chinese knock offs appear to be the same in appearance as their higher priced counterparts. That said their beam pattern is horrfic and the hot spot is in the wrong spot and such which is very important. Sure they are bright but if they don't help you see the road better they are pointless. I was wrong and I apologise! If you ride at night often don't skimp! Spend the money! Could save your life!

Are the Eagle lights made in the USA?

@Mfell2112 - Eagle is made in China. As far as I've been able to figure out, the HD "Daybreaker" are re-brands of JWSpeaker products, which are, in fact, domestically manufactured. I did not know this when I did the install otherwise I would have bought the American product. Oh well. I'm very happy with the Eagle product.
