Custom Dynamics Lighting

Anyone running Custom Dynamics lighting on their bikes? If so what are your thoughts? After looking at Daymakers, JW and a couple of other vendors went with the CD turn signal conversion kit, TruBeam headlight and passing lights for my Ultra Limited. Cost a bit more then I was looking to spend but I like the performance and looks of their halo lights.

I just pretty much don't ride after dark.

I need to find a good pair of those yellow night vision glasses.

Check with Backroad Mike..... I thought my truck lite phase 5 lights were bright until I rode ahead of Mike at night..... I think he has a Cyron LED conversion.... it was like riding in front of the sun.

I do like this headlight. Low beam functionality is fantastic. High beam adds a little more, but not that much. Highway signs at night will reflect and can be somewhat blinding if they are big signs.

The fan noise is a little distracting when you turn on the ignition and it lights up, but you can't hear it when the bike is running.

I've tried various upgrades to the CVO dual bulb headlight that I had originally. Nothing seeded to work long term. Then I went to the Phase 7. Light was great in a flat plane left to right, but it's such a concentrated flat line that the corners go completely dark when I'm riding the twisties at night. I found this out the hard way coming out of Yosemite after dark in 2013. I had to slow way down to keep from overdriving the lights.

I still have the phase 7 if anyone wants to give it a try.

As my original CVO headlight was the dual bulb set up, I purchased a standard 7" single bulb housing second hand from a local shop and installed this bulb.

No, I'm using the Pathfinder 881 passing/spot, 50 Watt LEDs.

The color output is the same as the Cryon LED headlight.

Top Row:
Passing lamps unlit. / Low beam headlight

Bottom Row
High Beam Headlight / Low beam and spots

Custom Dynamics headlight, driving lamps and turn signal markers are in. Not only do they look dope, they are bright as hell. Did the rear markers, tail light and rear fender lip. Iíll post those as well shortly

We rode home in the dark Thursday night for the first time this season. I'm still impressed how much better these lights are over stock and the phase 7 stuff I had earlier.

I just put the Hogworkz Halomaker headlight and passing lamps on the Cherry Bomb. Won't know how well they work for a while.

Really impressed so far. Weather hit 50 degrees today so I took it for a ride. Big difference in brightness with the front/rear fender lip lights.
