Hello
My headlight on my 03 wideglide seems dim compared to my
friends bikes. I have replaced the bulb (stock) and checked
voltage at socket in headlight (13plus) Ground at headlight is
good. What do you guys suggest? Anyone else notice this
with their wideglide? Any conversions that will light up
my world?
Any and all suggestions welcome. Thanks

I'm big on headlight upgrades, search for relay and you'll find my write-up on headlight upgrade.

Bulbs fade over time, the first step might be to just replace the bulb.

I know the '05s have the redesigned headlight reflector/glass.

If you're comparing your headlight to your friend's '05+ and you like theirs, you can just change out the reflector to one from a 05+ model.

The difference between a glass, halogen HD light, and the new multi-reflector halogen lights is night and day.....(no pun intended)

Upgrade.
