Vetter lights

Postby weathersh09 » Mon Oct 11, 2010 5:20 am



My 82 has the Vetter top box with the 4 big round tail/brake lamps equipped with 1157 bulbs. I replaced two of the standard bulbs with two 1157's with the LED ends, (available at AutoZone) and now I can't tell if the LED bulbs are coming on with the brake lights. They work fine with the tails. Should I stop this conversion or finish it?? With the tails on, those bulbs are beautifully bright.

I've found a few LED bulbs to be sorry. I got on eBay and it took a couple tries but I finaly got some that put out some light. They were a lot cheaper than Autozone too. Just go into eBay motors then search 1157 LED.

do you happen to remember who the maker was for the bulbs you found that work well?

I used these 13 watt high-power LED's that I found on eBay. I tried quite a few different LEDs from quite a few different vendors, and these are by far the brightest that I have ever seen.

The seller on eBay is "warden_jp2002".

These are the brake lights that I used, and these are the signal lights that are on my bike.

Can't remember who my seller was. I tried several before I got lucky.
