Hi I have a 2016 America, I'm looking at changing headlight to led. I am looking at the 7" daymaker halo plug and play. my question is it says it will fit the 2016 Bonneville and 2016 thruxton. are they the same headlight as the America? thank you

I know the Speedmaster's headlight is smaller for that "sportier" look. Not sure if America headlight is same as rest of Bonneville line. Have you measured your's? If 7" I would think it would be no fitment issues.

Hi. i have the same bike, i change all my lights to LED, i went to "Super bright led" web site, and you can look up your bike, I did not change the front turns, i would have to buy a new control box to make the turns work, but the back ones work great. good luck.

I just changed out my two auxiliary front lights to Night Rider, side lighter, LED,s. I had them wired into the high beam switch so I am legal. Not only do they cast a good beam forward, there is an extra set of LED's that shine out towards the sides of the road. This is especially important as I live in Northern British Columbia where we have a lot of wildlife using the roads. Nothing will ruin your day more than having a moose step out in front of you on the highway.

Bought this from Amazon for £45....fitted right into my Speedmaster Headlight, plug and play. You have to bend the metal bracket inside the headlight ring up a little for it to fit .
For £45 you can't go wrong. Really bright and much better than the 1 candle power stock headlight.
