I am looking into changing out my back lights and front blinker lights to all LED lights, can it be done and if so HOW?????? and where do I start looking?
Do I just change out the light bulbs or the hole units as a hole?
HELP Please :?:

I just changed the complete units. However, you will need to compensate for the load or actually the lack of loaded with a different flasher or a flasher load. They are sold by most of the Goldwing suppliers, just ask the dealer you get the LEDs from.

I am curious as to why you want to replace your incandescent lights to LEDs?
I have added numerous LEDs but haven't changed my OEM lights to LEDs.
Thanks

I too like LEDs compared to incandescent bulbs. Less current draw is a big advantage and the fact that the directional lights and brake lights are instantly bright as compared to the gradual brightening and dimming of the filaments in incandescent bulbs. However, since the 1800 Wing has more than a sufficient charging system, I haven't considered replacing the lights. Here are some of the LED lights that I have added to my 1800 Wing.



The rectangular lights are Whelen LED strobe lights (red) and are extremely bright. The others are home made with 10mm LEDs.

Metalman,
I like the way you added the light bar to the license plate bracket. It looks good. I want to add some bright LED brake lights also. That looks like a good way to mount them.
