I'm glad to see that Snorebaby has converted to LEDs, as I'm trying to do to my 1984 GL1200. I found the LEDs I want to replace all my incandescent light bulbs (other than the headlight) on SuperBrightLEDs.com. My concern is, with the LEDs, due to lower amperage of the LEDs, do the turn signals and emergency flashers work without changing the controllers? SuperBrightLEDs.com offers two different motorcycle controllers, but I don't know if they are required. If they are, I don't know which is the appropriate controller.
In addition to replacement of the incandescent bulbs, I am adding LED front running lights, LED sidelights on the saddlebags and a 3rd brake light on the trunk.
If the added lights employed incandescent bulbs, I fear the power required may exceed that capacity of the original stator, thus the change to all LEDs.
What was your experience?
