Will a older headlight fit on a 1998 wing? I need one ASAP!
Thanks.

The earlier H4 bulbs will not fit in the 1998-2000 Goldwings unless you use these shims to make them fit. The tabs on the bulbs are different so you have to cut off a couple of the tabs on the older styles bulbs and put these shims on. Then they will work.
