    I installed the Cyclops kit in my 2016 RT today. It took about 4 hours from start to finish to remove the headlight assembly, install the bulbs, drivers, and resistor, and reassemble the bike. I wouldn't call it a hard job, but I wouldn't say it was fun either. The result appears to be worth the time, however... Bright white light that should last for years before I need to replace a bulb again.

    More importantly, did you get a chance to clean all the hidden parts while the front end was off?

    Of course... I couldn't help myself. Never mind that nobody can see them, I know they're clean(er).

    Well done! See? All that effort was worth it, just to have clean guts that nobody can see. I'm sure your bike will run faster and better now

    If you know the sequence, it really does come off in 20 minutes tops (with s few pulls from a cold one thrown in for good measure).



    OK. You are all going pig-pile on me for this but here goes:

    My first comment was light hearted, this one is dead serious. These and some other LED lights are dangerous to your vision. DO NOT stare straight into them for more than a couple of seconds at a time. Rocketman jokes about seeing spots for a day. I installed mine last spring and I can still see vague green spots in both eyes. This would be permanent retinal damage and is one reason I ditched these LEDs (and the ADVMonsters before them) in favor of a different, lower output, unit. The LED aftermarket is on a Lumen-envy tear and their products are just ridiculously bright to make up for generally poorer beam patterns (this applies to Camheads and I have photos to prove it, Wetheads may be different because there's only one low beam). They are bad for you eyes and bad for the eyes of oncoming drivers at night. Please be careful and be considerate of others, you don't get re-dos on your vision.
    Right on. I detest these blinding badly-aimed lights. I donít understand why anyone needs to spend hundreds of dollars and hours of riding time replacing the perfectly adequate stock lights.
