Anxiously awaiting arrival of the headlight mount I ordered the first week of October. Have Kuryakyn Orbit Vision LED headlight ready to go once it arrives. Tracking this morning shows it finally reached Chicago (from Russia). Should have it here in FL this coming week.

I just finished my conversion to LED. It was a very economical project and works great. Here is what I used and how I did it.
Wisamic 5-3/4" 5.75" LED Headlight from amazon $40.00. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01DZU30S0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
This light is 5.60" vs. the factory 5.75" so it left too much of a gap. You will notice the factory light also has a gap all around. So to fill in the gap I ordered a black trim ring on ebay. $19.00 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Gloss-Black-5-75-Replacement-Headlight-Trim-Ring-Harley-Dyna-Sportster-Softail/142473360490?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

Next I wrapped the new LED light housing with some epdm rubber weather seal and installed some black door edge guard on the inner lip of the factory trim ring.

After that, the factory bracket holds the new headlight in place. But just to be sure, I used some silicone on the contact areas inside the trim ring and the bracket.

snug fit but it all goes back in the housing without removing the organizer.

The light is much brighter and whiter. Gives a better cutoff line also. Total cost is under $75.00


Here's some pictures. I'll have to post the final pics on the next reply

How did this setup hold up as far as durability after some time passed?

Hey Mate, how did you mount the stock bracket to the new LED headlight? I can see you've used silicon?
