Cool 7 inch JW Speaker headlight installed

Installed a 7 inch JW Speaker headlight on the moto yesterday. It actually looks way better than I thought it was going to. and the install was extremely easy! The insane amount of wire Honda puts in the stock headlight actually fit in the unit completely fine! I had to buy a couple metal washers (about a half inchs worth and did a quarter inch on both sides) to even up the spacing of the headlight but all in all this was extremely easy and straight forward.

I've been looking at this light for a while and I found it on craigslist the other day, brand new for $200. I Immediately bought it and saved a good amount of money.

I'm not going to lie this is an expensive mod, and i probably wouldn't of done it if i didn't get the deal i did. But if any of you are interested here are the links to the things i bought!

This things is sick and super bright. Also the light has a level inside of it that senses when you're turning and turns with you. It's pretty amazing actually, took it out last night and I was speechless about how much better it really is.


Standard Length headlight brackets.

I bought the headlight off craigslist for a deal but this website also has a really good bundle deal you can get for the whole setup, minus the headlight brackets.

you can get whatever color you want but this is what you'd select if you wanted my exact setup.

Bucket Finish : Black
Retainer Ring : Black
Headlight: Adaptive LED (Black)

Makes the front end look more aggressive...very nice!

All the stock wiring fits inside the bucket? My 5.75" headlight bucket barely fits the LED headlamp, with all the wiring left outside behind the bucket.

I've seen multiple posts about the smaller headlight buckets being a struggle with wires. I decided I'd just try a bigger one out and they all fit in super easily! the headlight bucket is 5.75 inches deep and the headlight is 3 inches deep. so there is lots of room for all the wiring! also because the headlight is so much bigger i didn't have to bend the brackets at all i just had to get a little bit longer bolts for the headlight, and a 3 small spacers on each side of the headlight to line it up.
