I installed LED driving lights last winter on my 1500. I bought the lights from Harbor Freight, they are the 3 inch square ones. Very bright and light up the road a long ways in front when using at night. How ever, when I turn them on, I get lots of buzzing on both CB and AM/FM radio. Short of either not using the lights at all or not using the radios when lights are on, is there a filter or something like that to put in the light power lead to stop or make the noise less??? I can do basic electrical stuff but not up on technical stuff like this. Thanks in advance!

I've been lucky enough to not have to deal with noisy LEDs yet. Power line filters such as chokes, capacitors and ferrite beads (or combinations of them) may help, but if the noise is radiated energy and getting picked up by the antennas there may not be much you can do... You could check that by walking around the bike carrying a portable radio.
