Question about LED lighting for GL 1500

I have been looking at a GL1500 Hi/lo beam LED plug n play installation headlamp through SOCALMOTOGEAR ; has anyone purchased and or placed this on their 1500? Mine is a 1999. Any info would be helpful. Thanks.

I do not know about the GL1500. But I turned a buddy onto Socalmotgear headlight bulbs for his 96 F150. He installed and we could both see a difference. And at our age Driving at night is getting to be a chore. So I installed in my old bronco and have been happy ever since.

Here is an in-depth review of these bulbs being installed on a GL1500: https://goldwingdocs.com/forum/viewt...p?f=18&t=45345

SoCal has a $20 discount for Black Friday; coupon code BFCM25W (Will not work until 11/29).

Not logged it but looking at the thread index it shows that Pastor Ron was last poster with 3 replies but when I looked at the thread, only two replies. Soon as I logged in, the above post appeared.


MORNING UPDATE: Works fine this morning. Not sure what happened. I'll blame Microsoft just because. either that or my darkside tire.

I went with the HID kit for my 1500, so far so good. They are very bright, so bright the truckers complain. I just tell them you should see the high beams. I don't really have to run high beams cause the low beams are so good.

Did you have any problems getting the spring off the bulb fixture? Any tricks?

Thank you all for your kind comments. I ordered mine today 11/29/19. The code # of BFCM25W did not work for me, however, I was able to get 5% off for being a Veteran.
