Looking at a 1996 GL 1500 SE...what is the difference between 1996 GL 1500 Aspencade? Bells and whistles?

The SE has two-tone paint, CB radio, a trunk spoiler/light, a windscreen vent, lighted handlebar switches, adjustable passenger footboards and foot warmer vents.

That is about the list...the lighted handlebar switches use a "grain of wheat" bulb that will..over time burn out. The bulbs can be replaced very easily with 3mm LEDs and make an amazing difference!

LED Update

Be nice to see a step by step guide on putting LEDs inside the handlebar light switches :)

Just used 3mm blue LED's purchased from superbrightleds.com also requires a 560 ohm resistor. Soldering skills required and be aware that the LED's are polarity sensative.....I have posted a link with directions to do the work...http://goldwingdocs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=9667

There are also directions on how to replace the bulbs in your dash..saddle bags...trunk..etc. I did mine and love the look! These are all LED now...


Saddlebag lights, trunk light, side lights and ring of fire are all LED Strip LED's...
