I'm going to keep an eye on this. I have a MotoLED bulb in my VTX and some of the guys I ride with don't like to be in front of me after the sun goes down. I have adjusted the beam, so I'll see how that works, but the idea of no adjustment concerns me.

Hey I don't know if any of you are paying attention to the VTX facebook forums, but https://www.vtxdaymaker.com/ has created an adjustable bracket for all models besides the F model. It allows you to install a daymaker setup and adjust it without having to ghetto rig it with shims. Just updating the thread if anyone is interested.

Yup. Mine is on it's way. I will do a review as soon as I get it, and do the install.

I am looking forward to it.

You do use components from your factory adjuster, and apparently you have to follow the directions and only remove/use specific parts that are in the instructions. For those that have purchased it, you can register on the site for a forum dedicated to understanding how to do the install, and share knowledge.

I am not affiliated with this company, I'm just a happy customer (I have the non-adjustable version and am moving to the adjustable).

I just ordered the A2 kit after asking a couple questions. The website isn't clear that the new adjustable ring is standard with the kits now. I live close to the border and have a US shipping address, and have to go pick some stuff up in a few weeks anyhow, so I saved the $45 international shipping fees. Looking forward to getting this on the X

I got my adjustable bracket, E Daymaker, and installed the light yesterday.

The instructions are good, be sure to register on his website and goo to Members\Technical Support. He has step-by-step instructions with pictures. I kept my ipad next to me, and had it all done in <20 minutes.

I did play with the adjustment on the bike some, but didn't get enough time to finalize it. I am very happy with the ability to adjust now, no more lights shining right into on coming traffic.

I would recommend this...

Sorry I didn't take any pictures, but if you purchase a kit and register on his site, his pictures are better than any pictures I could take.

So... I spent a little more time adjusting the light when I got home. I have to say, I’m impressed vs. before with the non-adjustable adapter.

The day maker and adapter I had before was clearly blinding people, it did appear to be brighter. The reason is, the light was not focused down on the road as well as it should have been. There is a “less dim” shape, but it does not take away from being able to see clearly:

(I had to block a street light with my finger, it was causing glare)


The high beam with the E lights are ridiculous... It lights up several blocks.
