Smoke lights?

Will putting smoke headlights effect the output of the light much. I would think it will effect it a little bit but not enough to notice it much. What is everyone's input on this? I got the chance to either put clear or smoke on because a buddy jumped on the truck last night, his shorts caught the parking light, and broke the plastic mounts. So he's paying for the one light, and basically now I have the chance to upgrade, so what's everyone's opinion on this? Thanks for the help guys, I appreciate it.

A smoked lens will cut down on light output. Amount depends on how smoked they are.

Personally, I'd just go with a light that has a black housing like the 05-07 HD headlamps.

Smoking your headlights might also get you some unwanted attention from law enforcement. +1 for the harleys....
