    I didn't get the chrome ring. I would think the ring would be like the black rubber, channeled. The kit comes with everything you need, no modifying the electrical system. When switching from Incandescent bulbs to LED, LED uses less power to use. Thus less strain on the electrical/charging system. They work really good and took less than a hour to install. I will never go back to the cornering lights.
    Also remember that if you modify the current electrical system and have the incandescent bulbs stay on. You'll risk the chance of the bulbs getting too hot and melting the lights housing. LED lights have very little to no heat.
    I also installed the HID headlights kit. I don't have nearly as many people pulling out in front of me. I am very noticeable to on coming traffic.
    Hope this helps you.

    Hi Bill,

    Al here, segwaywinger from Green Bay, WI.

    Thanks for the information about converting my turn signal lights to driving lights on my '93 GL 1500. I checked out the kit offered at Cyclemax that you told me about and it looks like what I am looking for.

    A couple more questions for you, if you don't mind.

    When you used this kit, were there any problems with the electrical system wearing down? I don't know much about electrical systems on the bike, but I did see the new lights are a "plug n play" replacement. Have you had any issues with your electrical system since you installed these?

    Did you also add the chrome rectangular rings to these lights that Cyclemax has? I also saw them in their catalog. Are they clipped on the lower cowl or was two sided tape used?

    Thanks for your help. Yours is one of the best options I received that seems to fit what I want the bike to look like and do.

    Al
