Another quick option is go to www.hondapartshouse.com and find the diagrams for the areas the lights are in and then Google the part number. Hopefully a picture of the light will show up.
What a Superb resource! Thank you! I'm already ploughing into the content there.

Re: List of GL1500 bulb types & quantities

If you already have your bike taken apart just take pictures of the bulbs and go the cyclemax site AZgl1800 provided. Thank you, but no I haven't started stripping my bike yet. This was the whole point of my original post really, so I could purchase the lamps up front, and have them all ready to go...

Re: LEDs and flashers - ya... that again...

Excellent reply THANK YOU!!! I honestly wasn't aware we had a steering position sensor, even though it seems an obvious input to any signal cancellation circuit.

Re: LEDs and flashers - ya... that again...

Ahhhh... That's what I was getting at thank you. Is that the bank-angle sensor?

I knew for example that there is no steering position sensor or switch, so was wondering how the bike determines that the turn is complete.

List of GL1500 bulb types & quantities

Hi folks, Is there a concise list anywhere of the original OEM bulb base-types, wattages and quantities for the whole GL1500 bike? I'd like to start ordering in some LED lamps so I've got them ready to swap out. I appreciate with the indicators, I may have to add power resistors strapped to the bike...

Re: LEDs and flashers - ya... that again...

So the LED flasher from eBay maintains the auto cancel function?

Does anyone know what sensing the cancelling unit uses to know when to cancel the flasher? What is the determining input?

Many thanks.

Re: Polk MM651 speaker woes

Maybe overheating of the pole-piece due to sun exposure or due to driving the speakers loud, or vehicle vibrations effected the glue. If it were over here in the UK, then we'd have valid channels to explore, as by law goods should be of suitable quality and fit for purpose. It wouldn't be too diffic...

Re: Split charge relay

What you propose makes little to no sense to me. Perhaps you can further explain why you think you need the extra battery? Caravans/campers employ split chargers to re-charge a deep-cycle leisure battery whilst driving. It takes advantage of the extra capacity available from the vehicle's altenator,...

...can someone clarify all this talk amongst these posts about polycarbonate? Is it simply ignorance or assumption? To my understanding, the majority of aftermarket windshields are currently made from acrylic, which is vastly less impact resistant, and much more easily scratched than polycarbonate, ...

I mounted it with tire irons, the same way I'd mount a motorcycle tire. It was a bit harder, but not as bad as I thought it would be. And no, the sidewalls do not looked pinched in. As I said, 18,000 miles on it so far and it feels and handles just fine. Thanks for the feedback offcenter. I'd love ...

I run a 195 65 Nokian car tire. I have almost 18,000 miles on it. It definitely does NOT rub the swing arm. I still have enough room to slide my pinky finger in there, just barely. I'm guessing it misses the swing arm by about 1/4 of an inch. Excellent feedback thank you off-centre. I just looked a...

The Avon bias tires are designed for tourers, so the load rating is more than enough. The front is a 63, rated for 600 lbs , the rear is a 81, rated for 1019 lbs.
