Headlight changeover to LED

Postby edgus347 » Sun Jun 05, 2016 11:51 am



I'm wanting to change my 1500's headlights over to LED types, but I run into this question about wiring types I guess. In some information on LED lights it says that some light won't work on PH11,H7,and H11. There are other types given also that they will work on. Does anyone know what type the GL1500's are?

You might want to look again. The LED bulbs that they have out now (just came out last month) are far superior to those that were available even a year ago.
