Question Trucklite LED. Will it fit headlight bucket R60/5?

I have the Trucklite LED on my Harley. It's a 7 inch headlight with H4 connectors. It has a great light beam with low power consumption. Has anyone tried it in a/5 bucket? Do you think it would fit? The sealed beam is a Par 56. I'm a bit rusty here.

Those LED lights are NOT road legal

You aren't "rusty", you are just plain stupid.


The beam pattern of the Trucklite LEDs has a lot of light scatter
which will make seeing extremely difficult for the driver you are
riding toward.


So when you blind the driver of an oncoming vehicle and it swerves into your lane,
be sure to remember the phrase "instant karma" in the last milliseconds you
have before impact with the vehicle you blinded, when you are
converted into something resembling tomato paste, and probably not even useful
as an organ donor

Don't be a Richard.
Obviously you know nothing of what you type. The 7 inch trucklite is DOT approved headlight and works fine on the road. Now go back to your miserable life and begone, Richard.

Me too, Just went to the Trucklite website and that headlight looks bitchin. More light with less load on the electrical system sounds just like what we need.
Didn't see a price though. How much do they go for ?

Never mind, just found a listing for $209, oh well.

I have the phase 6 on my Harley. Great improvement over stock. Fitment is the question and challenge on the /5.
Here is a better price.
