UPDATE: 1 AUGUST 2018

In my Hoglights review, I mentioned that the ‘carrier’ needs to be cut down a little to fit.  For those of you who are concerned about modifying the carrier themselves, Nate has kindly offered to cut down the carrier for our forum members at no charge.  That is what I call, a serious service. 

We will offer a service of cutting your carrier and returning it to you with your lights, ready to be installed for members of the forum.  All you need to do is ship us your carrier (along with a note of your order number) and we will ship it back to you with your order.  This service will be provided free for all members of the forum.  

We hope this may be of some assistance to those who are a little adverse to doing the job themselves.  

Cheers!

I am sure the discount offer will be available for a month, possibly longer, but it will end at some point so I wouldn’t wait too long.

I tend to agree with CHF10, I am keen to get some good LED's, but as he says, cutting part of the holder and grinding the back of the light, really? Is there not an available LED that doesn't entail this butchery?

Many Thanks,
Dave.

"In the Indian Motorcycle Australia forum, unfortunately it’s been incorrectly described that you are required to trim the heatsink fins to install our lights.   In over 60 installs that we have performed in our Brisbane workshop on Indian Motorcycles, we’ve never trimmed the heatsink fins to install a light.   Our Indian Motorcycle dealers also don’t trim the heatsink fins to install our lights."
Thanks for pointing this out to me CHF.  I have now incorporated that into my original review.

If another Chief owner is able to fit the Hoglights without grinding and without undue force, I will add a retraction in my original post.  Unfortunately I didn't install the lights myself so I cannot comment further about the need for grinding.  My workshop did what they did in good faith and they obviously thought the grinding was necessarily.

Nate from Hoglights says, 'grinding is not necessarily' even on a Chief.  We need a brave soul to have a go and install a set for themself and report back.  Anyone interested?

I've been giving some thought to buying these since seeing how effective they were on our recent trip. However, I'm not in a hurry to get something that needs significant modifying to make it fit. I was surprised when I saw the grinding in V-Twin's review.

And I'm about to head off touring again. It'll be weeks before I start thinking of lights again.
Cheers, Kim.

Hey guys, finally get a chance to make some comments about our Sponsorship & some of the thoughts above.  I'll do an intro post shortly.  

With the discount offer, we are going to offer this for the term of our sponsorship.  If we get behind something, we get behind it.   

In relation to the lack of "Indian" on our site, we are working on changing that.  Indian Motorcycles are becoming a larger part of our brand now along with a number of other big name brands.   Yes, our name reflects our origins, but not our destination.  Unfortunately, all of these things take time.  

Now, for what seems to be the biggest issue.  Modifications to your ride.  I'll clarify this straight up - yes, a small modification is needed for the Headlight Carrier (#5450485) no modifications are needed to the lights.  The modification to the Headlight carrier involves using our new template (almost finished and will ship with all Indian headlight sales) and about 5-7 minutes of work.  The lights themselves are a plug & play unit.    

We've installed over 60 lights into Indians in our shop alone and not once have we had to modify the light unit.  Our Indian dealers also have never modified the light unit.   

The rides that are affected by the "modification" to the Headlight Carrier are: 

Model Name
2014 Chief Classic/Chief Vintage/Chieftain All Options
2015 Chief Classic/Chief Vintage All Options
2016 Chief Classic/Chief Vintage All Options
2017 Chief Classic/Chief Vintage All Options
2017 Chief Dark Horse All Options
2017 Chieftain Dark Horse All Options
2017 Chieftain Limited/Elite All Options
2016 Chieftain/Chieftain Dark Horse/RoadMaster All Options
2015 Chieftain/RoadMaster All Options
2017 Chieftain/RoadMaster All Options
2016 Chief Dark Horse All Options
2017 RoadMaster Classic All Options
2016 Springfield All Options
2017 Springfield All Options

With our new template, it will make the modification a lot easier.  

Happy to answer any further questions. 

Cheers!
Nate

Hi Andy, most people I ride have said that my Hoglights are the brightest lights they have seen on an Indian.

I recommend Hoglights without hesitation.

How many have said that about the rider? :-p heheheh

I can concur, V-Twin's lights are very distinctive, even in broad summer daylight.

So consensus is they are bright, do they light up for a good distance too. My husband has LED on his victory and I always can pick his bike nehind me because of the whiteness and the brightness but doing a light test tonightvon a wall his low beam is not that bright at a distance. Compared to a normal halogen. He has a genuine Victory LED fitted.

I have never compared my Hoglights with Victory LED lights so I can not comment specifically about them.  But I do know what you are referring to... in my original review, I have compared Indian Pathfinder (factory) LED light, Halogen light and Hoglight.   http://www.indianmotorcycleforum.com.au/post/hoglights-7inch-led-headlight-and-4-5inch-led-driving-lights-review-9802548

Although the Pathfinder light was bright looking at it from the side of the road, it did not light up the road very well (uneven spread of light and varying degrees of brightness).  Hoglight provides much more even and consistent spread of light in low beam.

About a month ago, a friend fitted a HID light bulb (and ballast) into a halogen reflector housing on his Chieftain.  We lined up the two bikes in an empty  carpark at night. The HID (low beam) lit up the road from immediately in front of the bike, whereas Hoglight lit up from couple of meters ahead of the bike.  Aside from that, HID and Hoglight seem to perform similarly, but the HID having a slight edge over the Hoglight.  So that might be another option to consider.  All I can say is that Hoglight LED headlights have been the best LED headlights I have seen on Indians so far.

Thanks for the info. Definitely something to consider. Hoglights seems to have good reviews from those who have fitted them that's for sure.....

I purchased the Hoglights for my 2016 Springfield last year on the recommendation of Roberto (former service manager at Sydney Indian) and it was the best recommendation that he made.  Nat was great and to say that I'm happy with the light is an understatement.  I highly recommend them.
