LED Lights

Postby samellring » Fri Aug 01, 2014 9:00 pm



Okay, I have been looking at LED lights for my 1995 GL1500SE for a multiple of reasons:
1) To be seen better at night.
2) To have better and farther lighting in the front
3) Lower the pull on my battery & alternator

I have seen the LED DIY for the dash, console (radio/cassette/intercom), and CB radio. I am more interested in the exterior lights such as the headlights, turn signals, running lights, angle lights, and brake lights.

What I want to know is whether anyone else has done anything like that and any recommendations to the products available. This will probably be a winter project so, just wanting information.

Thanks to all that should respond!


Sincerely,
Scott Mellring

Have a look at WingAdmin's video for the things that he has put on his GW. You might get some ideas so that you can spread your expenditure out a bit.

But there is also one that he did on his entire GW, but dont remember what subject it was under. It was this last week, that it was posted.

That video your talking about is in my thread on Long Distance Upgrades.

Reputation is what other people know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself. Our stress about it happens when the two aren't the same. Be true to yourself and to hell with what everyone else thinks!

Thank you redial, uncle fester, and wingpilot96 for the posts and links.

Definitely, some different options to look at doing.
