Rings of Fire

Postby Stan Zinger » Sat Mar 05, 2011 3:53 pm



Hi All
I am happy to say that I just got my 2005 Goldwing 1800 (White)
Today I installed the Rings Of Fire. I have the 2 leads going up each brake line.
I have the Y connector and my question is NOW WHAT???? Where is the best place to attach this to the harness??
Does it somehow plug into the harness under the left glove compartment????

Thanks for you help
Regards abd happy to be in the Forum
Stan

I installed a master cylinder switch box and wired my Ring of Fire to it. I saw no reason to have it on during day light hours. :idea:

You must have a switch on it somewhere on the bike. In some states it is illegal to have it on unless you are in a light parade or bike show.

I Installed mine, as well as the rear ring of fire, the Y plyg attaches under the left Faring pocket. there is a good video on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IORvQLsBf0I that shows installation and where to conect them. Good luck, Im sure by now you have already installed them, but maybe this will help someone else.

If the front ring is amber and if the rear ring is red, those are not illegal in any state as FMVSS over rides any state statute.
If they contain any other colors than those stated above then ,yes they are illegal. However, having been a LEO for 30+years, I have never, nor any other of my fellow officers have ever, stopped anyone for this violation. Most of us seem to have enough smarts to know the difference between decorative lighting and some one impersonating a LEO!

In Texas it is not illegal to have them on as the lights do not project forward. However, that said every cop has his/her own views. Just had my bike inspected with them on and no switch and it passed.
