Handle bar control lights...

Post by Big Bob »

My 06 1800 throttle side controls no longer light up, slowly bulb after bulb burned out. I posted about this several months ago, can't find the old post. Anyways, has anyone replaced bulbs, there appears to be 4 or 5, (about $35)how difficult was the job? Or just replace the controls ($199) yes expensive, but is there something wrong causing bulbs to burn out? Yes bike is 14 years old, but controls on my 1500 failed at about the same time. I welcome any ideas and suggestions!

I did that job myself on my 06. Those side controls are easy to remove for replacing burnt bulbs.
