replaceing tail light bulbs

Post by shawnee1952 » Thu Jun 20, 2013 3:53 pm

I am a new owner of an 87 gl1200 Interstate and need some advice on tail lights. The lights on the tour pack all light up, but down on the hard bags I only notice the turn signals and brake lights. The lens covers wrap around the bags but I don,t see the sides light up. Should all the area under the red lens be on? Thank for reading.

Everyone makes fun of the old guys, but they all want to grow up to be one someday.

Not that I remember...My 84 had just reflectors.
Now that doesn't mean yours has them also...You could poke around a bit and see if there's wires going to them....If your adventurous,you could modify and add red LED strip lighting...The Admin has a "How To" about that...I think it was for his 1500 but the idea may work for yours...
