(Cross Posted)Question for the collective, especially the overseas
ones. g/f just got a '02 Fat Boy and I think the 7" stock sealed
beam headlight leaves much to be desired. Page 107 of the parts
manual shows two International Headlight replacement assemblies
(item 52, 67793-92 and 67801-92), one is designated as RH Dip and
the other is designated as LH Dip. I assume this refers to the beam
pattern. If my assumption is true, then I infer that the beam
pattern designated "LH Dip" tilts the beam pattern down on the left
side of the bike to avoid blinding oncoming drivers. Can someone
let me know if this is true?

I'd prefer the beam to be higher (further out) on the shoulder side of the road where the deer are - thus my question. I figure since these are international and some countries drive on the wrong **grin** side of the road that's the reason for the designation - but I'd rather know for sure and order the right one the first time.

TIA

Not 100% sure but contrary to what one would think I believe the RH dip headlite is intended for driving on the right side of the road (in more then one way, LOL)

Just look at the fluting on a RoadKing and compare it to the new headlite. If I were in your place I would look at the "Candlepower" reflectors rather then the replacement OEM ones. Follow the links HERE. You'll need Acrobat reader, but you can download it free from the site if you don't have it.

I agree with Hippo - the candlepower reflectors give a much further beam pattern - plus you can use H-4 bulbs to put a brighter headlight in.

A very good $40 investment.
