When we designed the Adjustable Bracket, it was one of our requirements to be able to manufacture the parts on a large scale, efficiently and cost effectively. In order to do this we needed to engineer a solution that would minimize the amount of time it took to manufacture one unit without raising costs to the end user or compromising on quality. We decided that the best way to accomplish this would be to use the existing stock components and build these brackets around that, without having to reinvent the wheel. Thanks to our Free Daymaker and Bracket build program, we were able to design and manufacture this bracket using an existing customers headlight bucket assembly. The Daymaker Brackets we manufacture are now built around your existing stock housing. In order to be able to upgrade your stock halogen headlight to a LED Daymaker, you will need to use certain components of your stock assembly. Continue reading below to learn more about the what is needed from your existing setup to be able to complete your upgrade.
The Adjustable Bracket is compatible with all Yamaha Raider models from 2008 - 2018. This install is a zero modification install. You will not need to modify any component of your stock assembly. The adjustable bracket available for this model is compatible with any 5.75" Daymaker available on our online store. We are working to include more style Daymakers with multiple color options to our line up in the near future. In order to be able to complete this install, please continue reading below.
The average time taken to complete this install is around 1 Hour or less. You will need the following stock components from your existing headlight assembly to be able to complete this install.
You will need the following tools.
1) #2 Phillips Head Screw Driver
2) 2.5mm Allen Wrench (included)
All Yamaha Raiders will require an H4 Dual 50W load resistor. We give you the option to purchase these directly from us when adding any Kit to your shopping cart. Please note that the resistors are required to prevent stator growl. It is our recommendation that you must install a Load resistor when using a Daymaker on all Yamaha Raider models. Please note that these load resistors get extremely hot which is considered normal . As a result, these load resistors should not be mounted to anything plastic. You may JB weld them to the back of the Daymaker fins or Drill and tap a hole on the side of the Daymaker fins. You may choose to mount them wherever you want, however, we do have some customer examples in the instruction section.
