red lights under license place

Postby W140amg » Tue May 12, 2015 9:13 pm



Bought a used Goldwing. It has the aftermarket lights instead of the reflectors, under the license plate, between the rear brake lamps.

Look similar to the lights linked below, except the sockets only have 2 wires (I am guessing it's only the running light, no brake light). Bulbs were burnt out, so I removed them tonight. Two 12V10W bulbs.

Anyone know which type I have? Is it worth putting in LEDs? I am looking on Amazon to replace them.
Is there a bulb number to them?

Thanks

Don't know about aftermarket but my 89 GL1500 Aspencade came with bulbs, not reflectors. Running lights only.

The one you linked to says it uses a 1157 bulb, my guess if yours has just two wires, it will use the 1156 bulb and could use the 1156 LED bulb too.
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!

Def not a 1156. it's only 10 watts. It said 12v10. No brand or bulb number on it.

I ordered these. Hope they work.
