Saddle bag reflector lens/ lights? GL1500

Post by Kingston »





1998 GL1500 SE
My saddle bag side lens needs to be replaced. I don't know if it's an original lens or not. I think the original was just a reflector. This has 4 lights behind it. Is it replaceable?

I don't know that the lens has ever been sold separately.

Cyclemax has complete light fixtures sold in sets. 6 incandescent bulbs in both, if you want LEDs you'll have to do the mod yourself.

This one assembled with screws for easy bulb replacement, $59.45

This one assembled with glue, a little less expensive but bulb replacement more difficult, $52.77

Those are very reasonable prices. That is the way I'd go if it were me needing one side. It's an upgrade too. Six bulbs instead of four.
