Re: Electrical Connection LED Headlight

That is a real shame Lewis didn't respond. I might be sticking my nose in where it doesn't belong, but I just called EC and spoke to the guy that answered the phone. He said they have been out of LEDs for about 6 weeks and they just came in. I told him about the situation and expressed my concern fo...

Re: Electrical Connection LED Headlight

I believe it was tied to the wiring bundle right next to the front of the triple tree, that runs down from the handlebars. If I remember correctly. Okay, I have the light assembly loosely bolted in and it looks like the left on that has to cross over to get to the cutout really shouldn't be an issu...

Also, you can repair it with ABS cement. I have made several repairs on my project bike. The parts are ABS and it works great.
Tony is right! ABS repairs, once you get a handle on a few basics, is relatively simple. Do you have any photos of the cracks?

Re: Electrical Connection LED Headlight

I prefer using zip ties to mechanically fasten things in place, but when I do use double sided tape, I buy 3M VHB (Very High Bond) double-sided foam tape - the adhesive on it is incredibly strong. In all the years I have been using it, I have never had it fail. And it can be removed relatively easi...

Never heard of that, will keep in mind next time I need to get after some surface rust.
Crumpled up aluminum foil is a well-known fix for removing rust from chrome.
Works great on cleaning up rims too!

Re: Electrical Connection LED Headlight

Well, it turns out, like I try to convince my wife..some of the only times I make a mistake is when I think I did. Had forgotten that I installed shims with the last set of H4s that I replaced. :oops: Oh well, when I receive the 2 sets that ordered from Cyclemax, I really will have extras!

Great review! Just ordered a set! I have had the standard JIS bit inserts for a few years now, but I can't always keep them separated from my other Phillips bits, and the ""Vessel" stamped on the side of each of them is getting more an more difficult to see as I get older :shock: I do have the handl...

Re: LED Headlight Comparison: SoCalMotoGear vs Electrical Connection

Scott, thanks for this excellent review. I just ordered my set directly from Electrical Connection. I hope I get the shims I need :? I almost can't wait to get them installed and show them to my somewhat snobbish SoCal light owner buddies..lol

After having had the pleasure of being on a couple of rides with Scott during the 2nd Annual Gathering, I can strongly attest that his current lights are very bright, but for some reason not offensively so. The sad part is, the site now says... H4 LED Headlight Replacement Bulbs for Honda GL1500 by ...

Re: GL 1500,89

If I keep my rpms below 3000, I get considerably better mpg. 3000 rpms is right at 67 mph on my old girl. If I hold at that, on relatively flat roads (which almost all of norther Ohio is) I can get 40 mpg.

Doug, I'll be moving from Perrysburg Ohio to Naperville before Thanksgiving. I'm relatively mechanical and I have leaned on a lot of experts as I worked on first my 88 GL1500 and now my 99 GL1500.

Dave, thanks for showing us the back roads from Mineral Wells to Delaware! :D My daughter graduated from OU a few years ago and there were many times I wish we would have taken that route instead (although the wife might have gotten a bit carsick on the twisties).

Enjoyed the long weekend very much, in spite of an action packed gravel road detour on Saturday. :shock: I was pleasantly surprised to find I still had some level of recall on how to read gravel and dirt pack from back in the late 60s on a Sears moped and later a Honda CB350.
