Sitting on your bike on the left hand side there is a round knob to the right of your left hand mirror. This is your beam adjustment knob. Holding bike up straight night you can adjust your beam up and down.But like the other reply said you may have to replace your bulbs. This is done by pulling the rubber on your mirrors toward the mirrors Then pull the plastic piece toward your mirror. At this point there are 2 levers on each side of the dash next to the mirrors. Lift them up. You will see the front chrome piece loosen. This actually is to raise or lower you windshield but it will make your job easier. Now on each side where you pulled the plastic back you will see 2 screws on each side. One in the chrome piece and one in the plastic grille. Remove all 4.Remove both. Then on the lower plastic grille you will see 2 screws in side the grille. remove these and your lower grille will come out. Now you will see The screws that will remove the headlight assembly. Remove bulbs. I can't remember it they come out from the back or if you remove the clips on the glass and they come out from the front. Then put back in reverse order. Dont for get to push the 2 side leavers back down. The hardest part is getting the rubber back in place around your mirrors. This is also how you replace your windshield. Hope this helps. Kenny

They are the same. It is one bulb with two separate elements high and low. You have to replace the bulb. kind of hard to explain how to do it though.

My 1989 honda gl 1500 gold wing wont start in cold weather, it cranks over


Mine does the same thing. I put a new gel battery with high cold cranking amps from Advanced Auto Parts. Look to spend 100 bucks. Choke at full choke and it starts right up now. Gold Wings are cold natured. I own 2 and both are. But the battery took care of the cold starts.

1990 GL 1500 SE Gold Wing no lights working


Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, dim or surges from bright to dim to bright the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, then check your head light bulb socket ground wire for a clean tight connection, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn down solder contacts or loose fit of the bulb base in the socket due to vibration.
3. Worn, chafed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/low beam switch.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
8. Faulty headlight relay.
9. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
10. Weak charging alternator/generator/lighting coil
11. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

I bought a 1990 Goldwing and there is no light switch except low and high beam. Do the lights stay on all the time the engine is running?


Yes the front light is on low beam at all times to make other drivers able to see you - Its pretty much law now for bikes to have this - you can wire in your own switch to have the light off but I don't recommend it - too many half-blind drivers out there -

91 goldwing stops when brakes are pplied


You have a wire that is shorting to the ground in the brake switch system. It's probably not in one of the switches, since it happens when either brake is activated. More likely wire grounding on frame or in harness somewhere. You should hear something in your headset when this happens. I am supprised that it hasn't blown fuse. Rick
