Okay, I wound up purchasing a "cornering light" packagefor my goldwing gl1500 which presently doesn't have any. They fit into the knockouts in the bottom fairing, which are not yet knocked out, and are supposed to be plug and play.
My questions are:
1. How do the cornering lights function differently as that of thedriving lights?
My best guess is that cornering lights only come on when the corresponding turn signal is turned on (i.e. right signal on...right cornering light turns on, right signal off...right cornering light turns off,and vice versa with the left side). Conversely, driving/fog lights are controlled by a switch and are on all the time while your switch is on. Is this correct?
2. Next question...If my assessment of the functionality is correct as Isuggested in question 1 above, can I change the functionality of the cornering lights I purchased to become driving/fog lights by simply adding a switch? Are there anyadverse implications involved; such as, the bulbs in my cornering light kit are not designed to be on full time?
3. Final question...when these lights were installed at the factory, were they installed as cornering lights or as driving/fog lights? Or was either available as an option.
Please answer all three questions if you know. I truly appreciate any insight and contributions to this series of questions.
NOTE:My reason for purchasing the corning light kit over the driving light kit was that the cornering light kit was about $35 cheaper and my main purpose was to fill in those knockouts in the lower fairing with lights of some kind. But if possible, I think I would prefer fulltime driving lightsas oppesed to part timecornering lights.
