LED'S AND MODULATORS

Postby GRAPEAPE94 » Thu Jun 02, 2016 11:27 pm



I am going to be in the area of CYCLEMAX next week and am thinking of stopping by and picking up a set of the new LEDs for my high beams (if they have them in stock) and a modulator. I will be keeping my SYLVANIA "ZXE" bulbs for the low beams and only want to modulate those. Is this the proper way to do it or should all of the bulbs modulate?

Typically most modulators modulate the HIGH beam circuit. This way, you can switch the modulator off and run your regular low beams, or switch to high beam, and that gets modulated.

They have special model modulators for LED lights (Cyclemax has them in stock).

Spoke to some nice people from Utah at the Reno Street Vibrations Spring event on Saturday (June 4). They have lots of lighting supplies for Goldwings. (and other bikes too). The LED stuff is still a little too spendy for me. Their website is: www.cyclelightsolutions.com and the email address is: info@cyclelightsolutions.com.
