Bulbs not listed in 97 manual or service manual

Post by HandymanHerb »

I can't believe they don't list bulbs needed in my owners or shop manual, so just checked them for myself when right turn signal light quit, while checking it started working again, bad contact I guess but figured it time to look for replacements, the local auto shops don't have them.

Started checking and found out the 1157 can replace the 1034 only difference was 1034 has 200 hour Life Expectancy for turn signal, 1157 1200 hours, so use the 1157

Now in the trunk it takes a 2057 it uses 6.86 watts for running lights, so less heat than 1157, I'm sure it's so not to burn lens and a little dimmer 2 vs 3 candlepower, least I can change these out for LEDS easy.

Think I'll get replacements for all after I find out what rear turn signal is too

Didn't know buying a Gold Wing would have me doing so much research but I needed to new challenge in life at 65
