Re: Electrical Connection LED Headlight

It appears they’re still available directly from Electrical Connection - I was just able to add a pair to my “cart” (even though I wasn’t actually buying any).

Re: Is This 93 SE Worth a Look?

I like the aftermarket seat, and the fact that it only has 50K miles on it. The different color saddlebags wouldn't be hard to fix. It obviously needs a new windshield, of course. If it will run, it's certainly worth well in excess of $1000, IMHO.

Re: 1991 gl1500 se will not start

I had exactly the same problem. Fine one day, cranked but refused to start the next, despite being on a smart charger during the night. GL1500’s need a fully-charged battery with LOTS of juice to both crank & fire the ignition. I suspect that if you kept cranking it in very short spurts, at one poin...

I suspect the infamous relay #3...when they start to go they can cause all sorts of intermittent problems. Sometimes, a knock on the relay with a screwdriver handle will get them functioning again...for a while. I suspect you've jarred it loose, temporarily. You might want to contact WingAdmin to pu...

Re: Engine compatibility

If I recall correctly, ‘97 onwards have a much stouter shift fork system (taken from the Valkyrie), not subject to the shift fork failures of earlier models. That’s why I chose my ‘97 SE.

Re: GL1500 handling

I wouldn't trust anyone's word on tire pressure - I'd check it myself. I ran my E3's at 41 psi rear, and I run my new E4's at the same pressure. No wallowing, ever, even when 2-up & loaded for travel.

It doesn't take much to induce wallow, though - 35 psi will do it for sure.

Re: So many messages about Led conversion !!!!

The pattern of light produced is limited by the shape of your headlight assembly's reflector & glass pattern. That being said, the LED's produce far more light, and make more efficient use of your existing pattern. All in all, a huge improvement.

Re: LED Headlight Comparison: SoCalMotoGear vs Electrical Connection

Some motorcycle-type H4 halogen bulbs were "ruggedized" (filaments better supported) compared to automotive ones, specifically to deal with that issue. I used to use automotive ones anyway, as they were about 1/3 the cost and lasted almost as long as the motorcycle bulbs. LED's, on the other hand, a...

Re: So many messages about Led conversion !!!!

I doubt you will find a headlight assembly, with a different pattern, that will fit the '94 GoldWing. With the earlier bikes (fitted with round headlights) it would be easy, but unfortunately that is not the case for you. Modern vehicles have headlight assemblies built to fit that vehicle, and that ...
