When it comes to upgrading the lighting on Harley-Davidson motorcycle, the staff at Handcrafted Car Audio are experts. Proper lighting is critically important to your ability to drive safely. It is equally important to ensuring other drivers can see you. New lighting can make your bike stand out. Let’s look at our most popular lighting upgrades.
Harley-Davidson continues to equip their bikes with halogen-based headlights. Even though these work, many options work much better. Among the newest technologies in replacement headlamp bulbs are LEDs. LED headlight bulbs produce a whiter light and an increase in viewing distance of 40–45% over stock lighting.
While being able to see where you are going is important, it is equally important that you do not blind oncoming drivers. The LED bulbs we use here at Handcrafted achieve that. We also offer complete replacement LED assemblies for the ultimate in looks and performance.
When it comes to turn signals, we offer a cool product called a switchback bulb. This is a multi-element LED assembly that replaces the standard incandescent bulb. When you are driving, it acts as a white driving light. This helps other vehicles see you better both during the day and at night. When you activate the turn signal, the bulb switches from white to amber. To ensure these bulbs work their best, we swap the amber lenses with clear lenses. These lights catch the attention of other drivers.
We also have high-power LED brake lights. Imagine 80 watts worth of high-intensity red LEDs behind a clear lens. The clear lenses can change the look of your bike.
Additional Motorcycle Lighting
If you are looking to have as much light on the road as possible, then we can install high-power LED auxiliary lighting on your fairing, crash bar or front forks. You have a choice of a small light bar or the compact D Series lights from Rigid Industries. We’ve tried lower priced “imitation” LED lights, but Rigid lights put out more light and last longer. Many of the spotlight models of D-Series lights will light the road as far as 500 feet away.
We stock many different accent lighting products. Many of our clients ask for under-body lighting on parts of the bike that are normally dark. From small spotlights to LED strips, we can provide you with a unique solution to make your bike stand out in the crowd.
If you are looking for more performance or style, or just something unique, then drop into Handcrafted Car Audio in Chandler, Arizona, next time you are out for a ride. We’d be happy to take a look at your bike and work with you to develop a lighting solution that meets your needs.
