Before I spend some of that 'free time' I now have looking for a used one I need to know that it will be a big improvement. Of course anything would be some improvement over a light that is essentially useless for riding at night (i.e. the stock, US Scrambler light).
Its a big improvement over the Scrambler light. It lights up the road with a nice wide beam and no more dead-spot in the center of the beam. The high beam is a little odd though, It shoots so high it misses the road completely but does a good job of lighting up the trees.
At first I didnt care for the look of it. It looked huge on the front of the bike but I am getting used to it.
