Later models and some early ones with adapter kits were running lights that are on all the time. Early models without the kits are just turning lights that only come on when that directional turn signal is on.
You can get the bulbs at Cyclemaxohio.com fairly cheaply.
They are not a lamp you can get at the auto parts stores and they go out quite often. Honda will rip you for them.

I get aftermarket bulbs from Cyclemax in Ohio.I think they run $6.00 a bulb. Much cheaper than Honda bulbs.

We need to know the year of your bike to answer properly.

The 98 and up used different bulbs, they are "driving lights" meaning they are on all the time.

Before 98 they where "cornering lights" and only active with the turn signals.

The newer style bulbs and two elements in them so when the first blows you can bridge the contacts on the bulb base with a soldering iron to use the other element.

Don't go to mother honda, >$25 each. ouch. Don't ask how I know....:whip:



It is a H6M bulb on my 99 1500SE. Very common in the ATV and >600cc?? class of vehicles in there headlight.

Also upgrade to the higher 35/36watt, much more light. It will light up the sides of the road better. Much safer. I did.


Honda 12V 35/36w bulb #34901-GJ1-003 is the upgraded.


When upgrading to the higher wattage, check you output voltage of the alternator at idle on the batteryto make sure you are not overloading it. Should be >14.0




The original is an 18/18 watt.

$5.95 each for original replacement.



And a good site for all of the technical on various bulbs

I also believe there is a 24watt version.



Lots of choices...

I don't recall the exact details but I though I was being clever and ordered the halogen driving light bulb to replace the cornering light bulb on my 93 for more light with less current draw.I found that the base is different though and they were not interchangable.

Mine is an Aspy but a PO had added switches so that the cornering lights can remain on at all times. I like being seen better and they really light up the road sides to better see the deer at night too. Sometime I would like to change out the cornering for driving lights.
