GL1500 LED Kit reviewed by GoldwingDocs.com



“I installed a set of these headlights on my GL1500 yesterday.

Before I go on, I should note that there is another alternative to these LEDs now on the market, from Electrical connection. The Electrical Connection H4 LED is rated at 4000 lumen light output, over the SoCalMotoGear headlights rating of 2400 lumen. I had the opportunity to view them side by side, and the EC bulb does appear marginally brighter - but definitely not what you would expect from almost double the lumen rating.

However, whereas the light from the SoCalMotoGear is very precise and defined, with well-defined cutoffs, the light from the EC LED is sprayed over a much wider area - so while it may put out slightly more light, the end result of the usable light appears much less, because less of it is going down the road where you need it.

However, this seems to contribute to the spray of light coming out of the assembly - whereas the SoCalMotoGear unit's single point of light creates a sharp, defined cutoff, the array of LEDs on the EC unit can be seen to cause multiple "images" of the cutoff on the projected light.

Drawbacks: aside from the aforementioned spray of light, the EC unit runs considerably hotter that the SoCalMotoGear unit. Perhaps the fact that it is sinking eight LEDs at a time rather than just the one (or two) of the SoCalMotoGear unit is to explain for this. Also, whereas the SoCalMotoGear unit has the low beam LED on at all times, and adds the high beam LED during high beam use, instead the EC unit switches between the sets of low and high beam LEDs. This has the resulting effect of losing some of your low beam light when you switch to high beam. The SoCalMotoGear unit, when switched onto high beam, keeps the existing low beam spread, and adds a tremendous searchlight-like beam of bright light far ahead and up, where you need it.”

~ Cruiseman's Favorite Aftermarket Products ~
Chosen Best Lighting Accessory

"If you are looking for a way to improve the nighttime visibility, the HID light kit from GoldWingHIDs.com is the only way to go. This is a true 'plug-n-play' kit that is much easier to install than some other HID products in the market. The low-beams cast a bright white light much farther and brighter than the stock halogens."

GL1500 HID Kit reviewed by GoldwingDocs.com

"...
The supplied wiring harness allows plug-and-play installation, with no cutting of wires... Once I finished the install, I went out in the dark to check the results. I was absolutely ASTOUNDED. The amount of light projected out the front of my bike is just incredible. In low beam, the horizontal cutoff is quite sharp, mimicking the factory light pattern very closely, to avoid blinding oncoming drivers... However, when the high beam is switched on, all bets are off - the result is a huge, blinding white spread of light that reaches a good half mile down the road. Road signs are illuminated so brightly that once they are less than about 30 feet away, they are too bright to read. It almost feels like you're riding in daylight. Animal eyes glow brightly from within the trees and bushes. THIS is what I want for riding in remote areas after dark... I was also worried about noise in the audio system from the ballasts - this can happen with cheaper ballasts, and motorcycle audio systems are particularly susceptible to noise. Not to worry - there is absolutely no hint of noise in the intercom, CB or radio from this system... I'm quite happy with the kit."

“…2:30 am through the Tennessee mountains! Can you say DARK????. Tennessee dark is another level of DARK. Well it may have been dark, but I turned on these lights, and the road lit up like daylight, this is NOT an understatement. With only my LOW beams I saw farther down the road that I had EVER seen before. It was a totally NEW night riding experience. The highway signs jumped out like they were lit just for me. Without too much gushing, I can truly say that this is the best safety, see and be seen modification I have EVER done on this bike. If you install them, you WILL see better, and YOU WILL be SEEN better…”

GL1800 HID Kit reviewed by Bill McIlrath - WingWorld Magazine | Product Report


"...Bottom Line? The factory bulbs use 55 watts each. HID bulbs use around 35 watts to "ignite", then the current draw drops even lower. With four bulbs converted, the load on my alternator has been significantly reduced, and I have triple the usable light. I like my HID lights..."
