Hwy/Driving lights intall

Postby c5cruiser » Fri Jul 03, 2015 3:12 pm



Looking at an 04 with ABS but it doesn't have driving lights.
Has anyone installed them?
As far as electrical, are they plug and play. :shock:

Very nice. That makes it easier to choose.
I know a lot about VTX's but nothing about Goldwings. It's like starting all over again.
Thanks for the info.
Steve. ;)

I installed a set of LED Fog/driving lights from www.SoCalMotoGear.com last week. They cost a bit more than the standard lights but the lights really cut through the night. And out here where the bear and deer roam at night they are cat's meow.

They are plug and play. The hardest thing I had about installing the lights was getting the cowling back on by myself. Before I hit the wall re-installing the cowling I had spent less than an hour into the effort.
