Have never seen an LED headlight for the oval shaped Road Glide light.  Ironic thing is the round light that's newly available for the Electra Glides would also work in the old Tour Glides.  It's just another 7" round light.  But when the Tour Glide begat the Road Glide the new bike got the oblong dual bulb housing.  Never seen an LED light for that.

I've had these HID's in the SERG for 2 yrs without problems. http://www.xenonlink.com/H4+Bi-Xenon+HID+Kit/H4+Bi-Xenon+6000K/H4+Bi-Xenon+6000K+Automobile+HID+Kit.html

Inexpensive and lights up the road very well. But no LED's here.

I talked to the Rep's that supply Kuryakyn the LED lights (Truck Light I think From Falconer, NY). They said they could make LED Headlight in any shape and said they may design a set for the Roadglide.

If they made a good set of LED Headlights for the Road Glide that are plug and play, the MOCO will lose a lot of revenue from not being the first to do so. Can you imagine all of the Road Glide owners who would clamore to get their hands on a great set of LED or HID lights with the proper optics, lens coatings and such.

I really wish the MOCO would do it though - hope they're listening / reading this.

I just happen to be looking into the same option for my Road Glide. First, I don't believe the headlights in the RG are oval, they look like 7" round headlights to me.

I found the manufacturer of the Kuryakyn LED Headlight is Truck-lite (http://www.truck-lite.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/GenericView?storeId=10001&langId=-1&pageName=/home.jsp). They offer the headlight at $299 list.

I also found a retailer selling them in pairs for $490.

Now that I found these, please play guinea pig - buy them, try them and report back to us :)

The headlights in the Road Glide are not 7" round. They are oval shaped and only offered on the Road Glide - hope this helps. The headlights you found DesertHog will not fit the Road Glide.

Respectfully speaking - no harm no worries.

They do look that way (round).  But they're not as them seem on a quick look.  The individual light housings are round.  But those two light housings aren't separate pieces.  They're part of the larger oval housing that makes up the complete two light headlight assembly.

Wow, learn something new everyday. I will have to take a closer look at the light housing. They sure have a great optical illusion going.

So I am still in the learning phase on this one. I happened across a couple of pictures of a Road Glide headlight housing assembly. So the assembly is oval and has what appears to be two 7" round headlights contained within the oval housing. What prevents me from replacing the two round headlights with the two of the Truck-Lite LED Headlights?

So if a lens cracks, you have to purchase the complete assemby, you can't just replace a headlight. What a scam.
