How can you tell if it has been upgraded to the newer assembly or not?

I'm gonna replace the bulbs and was wondering whats the difference?

Is the silverstar ultra bulb still the way to go?

Thanks

Item: P6260HD
Details:
This is a GL1500 replacement headlight bulb. This 60/55 Watt H4 Halogen bulb is designed to be a direct replacement for either the left or right high/low beam bulbs found on all Goldwing 1500's from 1988-2000. Please note,if you are replacing the bulbs on a 1998-2000 bike or on a bike with the 1998-2000 style headlight, you will need the headlight shims (EC2510 ) sold on this page for them to fit properly. These bulbs will fit the 1988-1997 style headlight without any modification.These bulbs provide better illumination than the stock 45/45 Watt bulbs without any damage to the bikes headlight housing or wiring. Always be sure to clean the glass surface of any halogen bulb with alcohol before installing it to prevent premature burnout from the dirt or oil on your hands.



The Please note, is what I was refering to.

I have the 'older' style headlight assembly and wouldn't know how to tell what the diference is, without a side by side comparisson.

Having said that and looking at your bike in your avatar, I doubt that it has the 'updated' version. You would find out I guess when you go to install the new bulbs.

The Silverstar Ultras are supposedly 'the ticket', but I seem to remember there is a certain model # that is more suited for motorcycles as they are built to withstandmore vibration, common to motorcycles. Do a search and I'm sure you'll find the exactmodel number.

Glass is the difference.

The older style has beam controlling facets in the glass.

Newer has facets in the reflector.

The headlight in your avatar is the old type kyboy67. The headlight lens on the old typeis glass and the two sidelights are plastic. The newer type has an all plastic one piece lens, like in the picture above.

You can use standard H4 automotive bulbs in your wing. The motorcycle specific bulbs are for standard bikes (and Harleys) that have the headlight mounted to the forks and is subject to a lot of vibration. The fairing mounted headlights have no more vibration than a car.
