Im swapping my round chrome headlight for the black long bullet headlight.Are there any tricks to taking the old one off and installing the new one or is it a fairly easy swap ???? I see myself as mechanically inclined and think that this would be something i could do but there is a huge fat wire harness going into the back of my oem chrome light.....Any replies on this would be great,,I get the light in 3 days TY

thanks does the big thick wire harness and other wires in the back of the oem light go right into the other bullet light I guess they would and is there a harness where the wires unclip or do you have to cut and splice??

Yep you just unclip the two wires hi/lo if I remember correctly. No cutting no splicing. The bullet lamp should come with instructions. But its a really really simple 10 min swap

yep its pretty easy. I am a horrible mechanic and I was able to do it. the wires are plug and play, no splicing. I made a mistake by goofing up something and I blew a fuse. swapped the wires around and I was good to go.

Sorry for reviving an old thread, but I have a 2010 Hammer 8 ball. It has the two head lights (1 round chrome housing, low beam on top, high beam on bottom) I think it's the ugliest thing on the bike, and would rather have the black style like the new hammers. Does anyone know or have a source for these housings?

Is this even possible?

headlight

Not on target with the most recent question ^^^
But my experience putting a highball headlight on 06 8-ball-

1) If at all interested in HIDs, consider doing it at the same time;
2) Mine fit much better when I ordered/installed the later mounting post and inner ferule/washer.
