Nice ride! Did you feel a braking performance improvement after the mod? Also you should post higher def pics of the exterior. I am looking to retrofit my headlights as well, I would love to see what yours look like. Thanks.

Thanks bud.
It was night and day with the braking. I have documented the stopping distances and my accounts in this thread >> Rotora BBK and Velox Apex & Dynapro RF10. Biggest disappointment is the OEM brake fluid, as I have documented in the thread. Still waiting for some spare time to changeout the fluid to StopTech 600F brake fluid.
Post #21 and later, have the tests of the stopping distances. There are some high def images of the headlight.
If you need any help with the retrofit, let me know and I can recommend the parts I used and also assistance, if needed.

Thanks. I might just take you up on that offer. What parts did you use for the headlight retrofit?
I used the Morimoto Mini Stage 3 (H1) projector retrofit kit. Stick with the 35W ballasts and I used the Iris shrouds. I run 5500K bulbs. I would also recommend buying the RetroRubber, which is a headlight sealant (avoid silicone/RTV sealants). As far as the wiring harness is concerned, you need the H4/9003 (MotoControl Bi-Xenon under Morimoto).

You can also get the Bi-Xenon Morimotor Mini D2s Stage 3 projector kit, spec it out the same as above. With the D2S kit, you have a much better selection of bulbs. The price for either of the above kits would run you around $325 and if you can get a coupon from the internet or Facebook (for TRS) you can get some decent discounts. Four years ago, when I bought mine, I paid $310.

I also purchased the Spyder Headlights - HD-JH-HRID06-AM-9K (pair) for around $155 from AutoAnything.com. This resembles the Sport headlighs and thus have black in the front, as opposed to Chrome. I did this so I could get everything installed and tested, so the swap can be painless.

Nice Mods man; i just got my 2019 RTL brand new, so taking it slow.
Replaced all the exterior lights, Low Beam/High Beam/Fog lights with LED's, as well as the bed, reverse, front and back turn signals with LED (with canbus built in)
Ripped out the stock 5" stereo for a Pioneer as well.

As far as the light bar; are you happy with it? How bad was it to wire up?

Thanks bud. Congrats on the purchase and I am sure you will enjoy it very much.
The light bar was a $45 unit from Amazon and has lasted for 5 years. I used to use it often when we went down to SC or for work, but now I seldom use it. When I installed it, wiring kits were astronomical so I did my own wiring using a relay and it was straight forward; but now, for the same $$ or less, you can get the wiring kit and hook it up.
As far as reliability, everything is solid and living in NJ and experiencing road salt and no cover, the lens has much stories to share. However it is strong, un-cracked, but weathered.

Ah, nice. I'll put it on the backburner then. I installed LED in the low/high/fog and it made a drastic improvement just that alone.
I'm in NJ as well; moved down here 5 years ago from MA, and grew up in Syracuse, NY so winter is MUCH more forgiving here than up there. so got that going at least.
