Headlights?

Postby huntsman47 » Fri Jul 05, 2013 10:04 pm



I have a 2000 /1500 SE. Beside my headlights on both sides there are what appear to be additional lights. They seem to be small bulbs and since this bike is new to me I was wondering if someone could tell me what they are? They do not work and I have tried all switches. There is a modulator on the headlight. Are these two lights running lights that are on all the time? I have a manual but it says nothing about these two lights? Any help would be appreciated.

Yes they are running lights and on all the time. Almost worthless though they are so dim. At least on my 93.

Thanks for the reply I kind of thought so but? Probably burnt out so I will do a little maintenance.

Honda's official name for them is "Position Lights". The bulb is a 194 but you can replace it with a good quality LED type. You can access it by removing the headlight housing. It's fairly simple to do. I have finally settled on white LEDs after trying regular, amber, and color changing LED types.
