The most powerful lights available for the GL1800 2nd Gen, each of the four extreme 10W LED elements gives out 960 lumens at 6000K the same bright white color as most HID lights yet in total they use less than 1 amp in current.
Constructed from billet aluminum with a toughened glass lens and mounted behind a resin coated custom aluminum shield.
Supplied with led fog light switch that mounts in the factory space in the left hand panel, installation is quick and easy with factory plugs that mate to the existing wiring on the bike, just remove the lower cowling blanks and drill four small holes and that's it.
These lights will not only enhance your nighttime riding experience but during the day they will help announce your presence on the road to other road users. While being bright they are flood lights so they are designed not to dazzle oncoming traffic.

Bought this for my 2012 wing. Took awhile to get the lights because they were on back order. This happens sometimes so no big deal. The installation was easy but with a some small problems. It's hard to get the wiring harness for the lights to "snap" into the harness on the bike. So I wrapped mine with tape to make it more secure. The switch went in easy but I had to adjust the wiring behind the buttons so the fog light button would move in and out correctly. Just to much wiring for the box on the bike. This is bad planning on Honda's part not the product. The big issue was one of the lights did not work. I had to ship it back to Bikemp3 which cost me $20. They were friendly and fast, so no problem there. Just the extra $20 I had to spend on a new product.
In order to safely ride a motorcycle in an environment with traffic, being seen is key to sharing the road with those who operate vehicles of the 4 wheeled variety. A great way to enhance your frontal visibility on a Honda Goldwing is to install a set of foglamps in the lower cowl.
These lights do not look like much out of the box, but are surprisingly heavy. They are also surprisingly bright. Supplied with slotted aluminum brackets, their position is fully adjustable. The black panels adhere to the lamps once installed in the brackets, and the lower cowl panel fits over the assemblies.
When properly installed in the brackets, the lamps will appear quite crooked, until the lower cowl panel is installed. Then it all comes together nicely.
Much like older technology halogen lamps, these come with an exact fit switch and harness. However, the amperage draw is so low that a relay is not required. There is a You Tube video which offers installation tips, which is very helpful.
The light output is low and wide, nicely illuminating the road surface from side to side, even on the interstate. The color is a bright white, which differs from the more yellow light produced by the motorcycle's stock headlamp. This adds visual interest to the front of the motorcycle, and an additional color in the visible light spectrum to be seen, improving the "being seen" factor even during the daytime. â€‹
I am glad I bought these. However, I wish they gave a little more distance lighting. Extremely bright at night and day. Instructions were weak, but video on MP3 was great. Didn't know where to put black strip, but saw in video it goes on cowling plastic.
Edges of bracket were sharp so I used a dremmel to smooth out the edges.
Putting the cowling back in place (I had one screw that just wouldn't go back in) was tough for me and find where the fog light connector was buried.
Over all awesome lights, looks good on the bike.
After all is said and done, these lights look good when installed and are extremely bright. Installation wasn't too difficult but it was time consuming getting the correct fit into the cowl opening. A lot of tweaking the forward adjustment on the lights where they bolt to the bracket and some bending of the bracket was required. Overall, this could have been a 5 star review BUT ...
Installation instructions were weak, with only one picture and not hugely helpful step-by-step. I watched the installation video on Wing Stuff and it helped some but it does not reflect the latest design, which includes using large washers on both side of the bracket where each bolt is. As others have noted, the brackets are somewhat crude in their overall fit and finish. I don't care too much about the "looks" ... nobody will see them. However, having to file to light slots out so the lights could be easily adjusted was a pain. A side note. The studs that secure the lights to the brackets are adjustable and they are shipped loose, meaning you need to insert a 3mm allen into the threaded stud and tighten it so it is secure on the light. When I first bolted these lights to the bracket, they were flopping around and I didn't see anything in the instructions to explain this. A quick call to BikeMP3 cleared this up.
As I said, overall great lights.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
