Guys what are your opinions on the best LED tail lights to replace stock ones on GL 1800? I have a bulb out and to me there is no sense in putting stock ones back in there! Thanks Marty

I agree. I replaced my tail lights with some LEDs that I purchased on AMAZON. They are much brighter. If you change the turn signal lights, remember to change your flasher. If not, you will get a rapid flashing of the turn signal.

Any idea where I can buy a flasher that fits a 1500 for changing over to led turn signal bulbs?

We have a few threads on this subject. There are many sellers of LED replacement bulbs. Some have erratic quality and/or performance. While a bit pricy, I use bulbs sold under the Southern California Motocycle Gear name as Pathfinder. I have had an issue with a couple of their bulbs and their customer service has always been exceptional. They even offer brake light bulbs with a built in flasher capability.

You can buy singles, pairs or a complete kit. They will include the flasher if you check the box.

Our friend here, Cyclemax, sells their products. I suggest you sign up for the SoCalMotoGear e-mail newsletter. Not overly frequent but when they do send one, it usually is for a sale. Black Friday is coming.

Above applies to the GL1500 as well.
