Those led bulbs look interesting, seems most cost effective and easy, how many have our members have tried these?

I converted all my brake lights to LEDs (bike & sidecar) and use this:


Current Bikes:
74 CB750 K4
77 CB550 K3
82 CM250C
82 GL1100 Interstate w/ Auburn Gemini (doublewide) Sidecar

Past Bikes:
What?? SELL a bike??

Can I have a motorcycle when I get old enough?
If you take care of it.
What do you have to do?
Lots of things. You've been watching me.
Will you show me all of them?
Is it hard?
Not if you have the right attitudes. Its having the right attitudes that's hard.

I use Rivco bulbs on my 2012. They flash then steady on, no connectors, relays or anything. Just replace the regular bulbs. Comes in set of four.

this one is only $8 incl. shipping

I have this unit on my 87 Aspencade. Works great providing you already have led bulbs but no specific instructions. you have to locate brake light wires yourself.

Either way you go good luck!
I think I am going to order a set of these in a couple weeks, would rather not mess with the wiring if I don't have to. I appreciate the responses, all good information. Always get great help from here concerning Goldwings
