2006 GL1800

Post by echinus1988 »



Can anyone direct me to a how to on replacing the lights in my right handlebar switch?

The top half works fine but the bottom is totally burned out so trying to identify switches at night is next to impossible. I know where they are, I would like to find them easier.

Thank you.

Spring is almost here! Ride Safe.

The parts fiche shows all the bulbs. You would have to figure out what ones are needed though. Many different part numbers for the bulbs.
You'll have to remove and split the assemblies and look for the ones that are bad. It's really tight in there, but it is doable.

It is also possible to replace the incandescent bulbs with small 3mm LED's...bit more work, requires a resistor and soldering skills, but they would last a lot longer!
