1500 Headlight Question
 
Hey all,
I need to replace the headlight bulbs on my 96 GL1500.
Do you have any aftermarket recommendations for a halogen bulb?
Thanks.

If you want to go back in with the halogen bulbs, Cyclemax is a good place to get them. Here is a link to the bulbs at Cyclemax. These are a little brighter than the stock bulbs that came on the bike. These are 60/55 watt compared to the stock 45/45 bulbs.

Look at the Philips extreme vision. Really good lifespan & high output

I just use standard automotive halogen bulbs, 55/60 watt. Don't remember the number of the bulb.

I just use standard H4 60/55 watt halogens in my '97.

+1... I've been using these without issue for ~5yrs; I'd heard that they don't last long, but so far they're as good in that regard as anything else.

Thank you everyone for your replies!
I ended up installing a set of Silvania Silverstar Ultra. Love them!
Safe travels to you all, and watch out for the cagers and the critters, because they sure aren't watching out for you.

I went to LEDs on mine, and every group ride I go on at least one person asks about them, are they hard to install and how much are they.
