To be used on GL1500 with Standard Headlight Bulbs Only! Use P115WD GL1800 version also sold on Wingstuff.com if your GL1500 has Non-Stock High Powered Headlight Bulbs. Kisan 150GW is designed specifically for the Goldwing 1500 motorcycles. Plugs in-line with 4-pin harness connectors. It's slim enough to fit besides the headlight assembly. MAX power rating is 150 watts or 75 watts each bulb. DO NOT EXCEED!

BOTH head light bulbs will modulate together as synchronized. Side-to-side (or wig-wag) flashing is reserved for Police or Emergency vehicle use only. Kisan 150GW circuit modulates the hi-beam current from 100% ON to about 17% OFF. This is accomplished by using a p-channel MOSFET, which is inherently safe, the MOSFET is designed to fail in the ON state. For additional safety, the circuit DOES NOT utilize the lo-beam whatsoever!

150GW comes with a detachable daylight sensor, which simply plugs into the pathBlazer. The day light sensors functions as a switch; it stops modulation when it cannot see enough daylight. The internal circuitry is being controlled by a microprocessor. The microprocessor allows for customizable features. If you turn the high beam on and turn the ignition on three times quickly, the microprocessor takes that as an input and changes the sensitivity. There are two settings "High" and "Low".

PathBlazer uses a soft-switching. Soft-switching is a technique which throttles the current flow through the bulb filament, so that there's no "thermal shock" - as opposed to a sudden inrush of current, which can damage the bulb filament or shorten it's life considerably. This is far superior than maintaining a small voltage. 150GW unit is totally self-contained and there are no hidden boxes or switches. There are no wires to cut or splice.

The daylight sensor has a low frequency filter to avoid false triggering. Please note that florescent lamps may not trigger the sensor - it needs constant incandescent light. Select hi-beam to modulate - as long as there's sufficient daylight. If you enter a tunnel or if it gets dark, it will stop the modulation of the hi-beam and stay ON steady. Select lo-beam to end modulation. You have the full control.

Life Saver

This is one of the most important and valuable accessories I have added to my ride.. The installation was super easy and plug and play as advertised. No problem. What was the best... When I hit the road. I do a lot of road trips, just crus in' . With the increase in traffic and the recklessness of the oncoming traffic, I would say that this device has been an intergalactic part of my safe return at least twice per ride. The safety it provides in being seen Is significant. Country crossroads is where it has been worth every penny. Flat intersections across my path have been the lifesavers. I have had drivers wave a thanks to me as I pass by as they were more aware that I was there. Even being lit up as I am on my wing, I thank myself for this purchase daily. Don't think about it, just do it. BTW I have had no problem with law enforcement in Ontario Canada.

Works great but had to dismout the connecter

I purechased this and it works excelent. I installed it as pur the instructions but when I went to close up the headlight compartment the modulator hit the back of the houseing. the connector position wouldn't allow it to close as it was mounted. I unscrewed the connector and installed the modulator and repositiond it and was able to close the headlight compartment. The instaltion of the electric eye was very easy. I put it in the cubby hole in the shelter below the key sw. The thing is awsome. Only works when you put it on high beam and the sensor keeps it from working at night. Talk about visability. People move out of your way they see you comeing for a mile. Excelent plug and play connection except for haveing to move the connector. I recommend this to all do it yourselfers.

Works Great

Installation was easy. Works as described. If you search Gold Wing Docs you will find a step by step installation posted that has great pics and suggestions on installing the sensor that I used. Wish I had done this sooner but after reading about two riders in accidents because of not being seen, I decided to add this mod.
