I've never used anything under my cover, and never had any damage. There are covers out there that work if used properly.

Seal mate tool

Re: Headlight Modulator

I bought a signal dynamics modulator from Cyclemax. It is hooked to both high, and low beam so can be used low,low, low, high, or off just by toggling the high beam switch. I guess the 1500s are different. I am not using led, or hid lights though. I agree with the difficulty getting to the high beam...

Re: Which model? (*IF* you were to replace your Wing)

I don't think I could wear out the Goldwing I have, but if I had the option of having a second bike I think I would like an early 80's wing to customize. I really like the looks of the older bikes. I've owned a lot of different brand bikes, mostly Japanese, and American. I am 100% a Honda guy though...

Re: Headset noise

It is very common for the modulators to be heard in the headsets and especially since the newer headset speakers are very efficient they will pick up this switching of the diodes. This is the reason that Sierra has never offered, other than a brake light modulator by J&M in the mid to late 90's, a ...
