1988 GL 1500 LCD screen elumination?

Post by qdivetrek »



Hey Guys, Newbie here.. just bought my first wing and I'm going to have a few questions... 96,500 mi on the clock but runs great, real clean bike.

I have been going through all the lighting..many bulbs to replace as you all know, replaced all the bad ones / trunk, side ones all except the instrument cluster, going to pull that out soon, it looks like 2 or 3 bulbs only working at the moment... it's supper dark

Question: The center LCD screen... it works fine and it's nice a clear.. BUT it is dark at night, ... is it suppose to light up, ? I can't see a darn thing when it gets dark outside ... does it use a bulb and it's supposed to be on all the time as the instrument lights are?
Thanks in advance

Yes and yes. There are some bulbs with blue condoms that light it up.
