Haha wtf harley.... Dry packs or cocaine? Lol
Chalky substance might be the glue used... Crazy Glue does this.
Demetry Gutierrez no it was the silica pack used to absorb moisture in the light. The pack leaked.
Awesome video! I installed a stereo in a customers Street Glide and on pickup he was blaming me for messing up his light. I was like "How would I get it dirty INSIDE the lens?" He said it wasn't like that when he dropped it off. While the fairing was off I must have inverted the light at some point and dust came out and coated the lens. You just saved me a chunk of $$$. The hard part is being patient with the heat gun so you don't crack the lens. Probably took me 1/2 hour to remove.
Crack the Code I’m glad it helped
Why didn’t you use clear silicone?
originally the lights had a visible black ring so i used the black gasket maker I had
Is the procedure the same for the main headlight ? And is it plastic or glass ?
should be the same but I haven't done it
So wondering how that fix went? I guess I got to do it with my spots my headlights the same damn way. I can’t stand the Harley day maker headlight I don’t like the high and low beam light on at the same time you know what I mean. So I’m going to switch to JW Speaker i’m going to try to keep my Harley spots. They are the same color you know the light color. Could imagine living in New York city been there on the bike got stuck on the bridge blew my camp bearings I think it’s called the George Washington Bridge. Had to be a fucking hundred degrees spent hours on there blew my cum bearings on the way home to Pittsburgh. Any tips I would appreciate it. Thanks
Yeah we want to ride through Manhattan $45 an hour to park!! Luckily we had some cops with us and you know it goes we got front row spots for a while. My spots are full of water I have to see how it goes. Hey thanks Brother!! God bless America it’s beautiful place
Michael Costeline and that George Washington bridge sucks but then again so does NYC unless you’re into a hipster lifestyle
Michael Costeline 2yeqrs later the light I repaired in this video was still good . If you haven’t fixed the cam bearing yet make sure you update the cam chain adjusters to the new hydraulic system cause when they go your motor could blow
Reading the comments saved me, the 7" lens wouldn't loosen up. So I did what was suggested in the comments and drilled a 1/4 hole in the back of the lens and used my air compressor to pop the lens
I payed 22 Euro for mine.....ru-clip.com/video/FpBahSTuJiU/video.html
The packets in the lights are desiccant packs. They are for absorbing moisture. Usually discarded after shipment . Lazy Quality Control on their end.
Willbarrel Smith I think they are in there to absorb moisture during the life of the bulb. The problem is when the package breaks open due to bumps and vibrations and the white powder gets everywhere.
Hey man thanks for the tip. If you find America along the Mississippi River, the ride from Illinois/Iowa Area Bout Davenport north Ward into Wisconsin . Nice scenery and plenty of biker destinations.
Raymond Fink thanks- just got back from Tennessee/Kentucky should be editing video soon
Omg bro. Thanks for the fantastic vid. My light had the same issue and i ain’t paying another 600$! Thanks again.
I don't ride much at night so have kept the stock (glass) lights on my bikes. No clouding, still on the original bulbs. NO hassles. Honestly though, don't you feel a bit annoyed at paying high dollar for something that clouded up? Coulda bought Chinese for that and paid less $$
The LED.s are under the lenses, those are magnifying glasses.
Rod X they are one piece with the diode like the little led bulbs, the little glass looking piece is one piece with the bulb but yes they are what directs the light and gives it a beam effect I believe the term is optics.
HOLY CRAP SOMEONE SMUGGLING COKE IN THE LIGHTS!!
Rod X 😆
Same exact thing my did. Half the lens like yours. I went and spent 30 bucks on amazon replacements.
22 Euro... ru-clip.com/video/FpBahSTuJiU/video.html
pickitup both passing lights on Amazon. They work just as well as Harley’s. I’ve had no issues with them
anthony delgrosso what did you get for only $30
Dude you just saved me a grand ... my daymakers work, but after 55k miles on the beast, they are all fogged up. I was told they were not serviceable and had to buy new ones because the lenses were pitted from riding in the desert - and I see it's BS. I guess I know what I am doing tonight lol ... AGAIN thank you.
Pacific Tracy I haven’t done the main headlight but it looks like it should be the same construction. Glad it helped
just a question though ... the main headlight - did you do that one also? is it the same idea??
This is why you get the lights with in 60 days of taking delivery of the bike.You will be covered under your 2 year warranty ,or extended warranty .If not you only get a 1 year warranty on the lights.
This means they knew it had a issue.
My stock lights are all clouded up from the same garbage, but planning on Daymakers soon. I just moved down to South Carolina from PA. Come on down and ride ALL year long. The weather is absolutely beautiful. People here are great, too!
scroopit from what I understand JW speaker makes the day maker for Harley.
Thanks Duane. I'll check 'em out. Leaning towards the JW Speaker Evo2 at this point. It'll be a few weeks yet.
Harley has a brand new design for the daymakers on their parts page.
I had a problem but they replaced them at no cost. There was a recall back in 2009 ,so don't buy them on eBay etc.Some will cause your bike to catch fire .
scroopit as soon as I convince the wife
Good job and nicely done brotha ~ 👍🏼
Good info to know knowledge is power
Had the same problem and did the same thing but the main headlight glass cover would not come off So then i came up with the idea if I drill two small holes in the back of the bulb aluminium case maybe I could use air to blow the dust out, better than that, the air pressure popped off the glass cover and gave me a chance to clean the whole unit inside.
Did the exact same thing with my SunPie. Blast some air and BANG lens popped out. Cleaned it up and good to go. Wear a mask, these things are from China so that white stuff is cancer.
Nice ! Thanks for sharing the tip
Dude great video
hi i wanna do a collab with ya
i have 300 subs and iblive in NewYork
GET OUT OF NEW YORK STATE BEFORE IT'S TO LATE! LIFE IS A BEACH
Good find on the silica packets. I snagged the Amazon knockoffs and haven't had a problem so far, but it's good to know how to fix it if or when I do. Also, if you decide to find America down here in Tennessee, we have a 12 month riding season ;)
I'd be interested to know which part of Tennessee you live in that has a "12 month riding season." Here in Memfrica we had record rain and snow for at lleast 3 months.
I've sat side by side with Daymakers and can't really notice a difference. I will say that the knockoff stuff is almost completely plastic. Don't know whether the Daymakers are or not.
thanks for the input, did you ever compare the knock off's brightness with the daymakers?
