Since Indian now has the fender lamp on the 2019 model DH, does anyone know if it will retro...

  7. How to change Fender Warbonnet LED

    Indian Motorcycle Builds
    You can change our you warbonnet light with a brighter and colored LED very easily for about $15.00 w/shipping. Personally I feel the stock LED is to “dim” – I like it to be “seen” during the day. I did an LED brighter bulb in my pervious Giroy and it worked great, so I basically applied the...

    Indian Scout
    Thought I'd share this pic, This war bonnet light is a little smaller, and very detailed. Fits the stock front fender a little better IMO. I picked it up at the Indian Charlotte online store for around 50 bucks. Just waiting for my Klock Werks Klassic front fender and I should be good to go!

  12. Front fender Light no work

    Indian Chieftain
    So I have looked around and found a few threads referencing the front fender light quit working but the only one that stated a reason was a poor fella whose wire was severed from some road debris and caused the circuit to short and blow the fuse which in turn caused the dash to stop working. My...
