Question about 1985 Honda GL 1200 Interstate Gold Wing
If you operate the driving lights only while at speeds and not idling for extended periods of time there should be not a problem. For a check to ease your mind, after you install the driving lights, start the bike then check the battery voltage at an idle. It should be in the 12.5vdc to 13.5vdc range. Now turn on the driving lights and check the voltage again. If the voltage drops lower than 12.2 volts at an idle, increase engine speed to about 2000 rpm and see if the voltage increases to about 13.5vdc or higher. If it does, just remember not to idle with the driving lights on for more than a red traffic light cycle.
