Led fog lights. In need of pictures

Postby Mspinner » Tue Mar 17, 2015 5:11 pm



I need to add some bright led fog lamps on my 83 aspy. I drive a very dark road with all kinda critters running out in front of me for a 20 mile stretch. I put the new sylvania silverstar in the head lamp, and although it made A nice difference , I need more. What would be great is if I could see some pictures so I can see the best places to mount them. I haven't seen any mounted on a gl 1100. Thanx for your time :)

That is a sweet looking bike! Wish it had front view. And LED lights. I have to many marker lights and haven't replaced those with LED yet. I can't afford the draw the standard bulbs would take. And I need bright

Go to this post on this board http://goldwingdocs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=26057. You should get a good idea about the LED lights available there.

Only pics I see there are 1500.

Mspinner, you're right. There doesn't seem to be many pics out there of driving lights mounted on an 1100. Before I removed them, mine were mounted next to the horn brackets on brackets similar to these

There are some brackets out there that mount to the engine guards like this

And these are custom made but look really good

Here's the article about that last custom 1100 http://www.gl1800.org.uk/technical/exce ... m-gl1100/#

before adding lights



after adding lights.

Nothing was moved. I just hooked up the hot wire to the lights so I could see the difference.

I saw these at a rally a few years back. May build something for mine. I have two single light 800 lumen "work" lights from Peterbilt... I too have highway pegs mounted to the front of the engine bars. I'll be mounting them in the next week or so. The lights are small, but throw a good amount of light. I'll find a spot and show you a picture or two.
