I’m guessing a protective film cut to size would be the best way at this point.

You're not talking about protective film on the lights are you? I suspect that if the lights have any reasonable amount of lumens, even LCD lights would be too hot for a protective film. But who knows, maybe I have no idea what I'm talking about. I was wrong once before. :wink2:

They make them for headlights, no?

WeatherTech makes their lamp guard film. 3M makes one too. I’d be surprised to hear the lights running too hot for the film to withstand.

The film looks pretty expensive for the amount you would use. I am looking for a grill type guard. Maybe I will find something I can MacGyver to fit...

I have the 3M film on mine and it works great, no over-heating problem.

My friend Steve managed to get a rock to crack his headlight. $2500 to replace! Ouch!

Never had a headlight or fog light get busted on any vehicle ever. Guess I am lucky

I had the the bright yellow over lens plates on my 2002; not amber, but similar effect in fog or tunnel driving. Film might be even better.

I bought the “lamin-x” perfect fit and lots of tints...

https://www.lamin-x.com/

There’s NO Goldwing, so I measured the lights the model that fits is SB-225

+1 on Lamin-X. The material is a heavy compound and will add some protection from smaller impacts. Mine have been on for over 20K mi and look as new. I checked on my order confirmation email and mine were 2.75" universal SB-2.75Y 2.75" Yellow Round Light Covers"

Matt's 2.25" may fit better I don't know because I cannot remember if I had to trim mine or not.

Matt,
You have the yellow tint? Have you ridden at night to see what happens to the level of light produced? Curious to know about that. Have a friend who has put amber covers (not the same but same concept) on his R1200RT and it makes him very obvious compared to a white-lighted bike when he's coming at you.
