I was thinking about changing all the bulbs out to LED's but there are so many I just stopped looking. MAybe there is a vendor that has a complete kit. Any info , thanks?

My speedo bulb is
WLED-W (194) wedge base
12 Volt DC 1-LED White
The high beam indicator bulb is
BA9s-B 9mm bayonet base
12 Volt AC/DC 1-LED Blue
The neutral and turn indicators are
BA9s-G 9mm bayonet base
12 Volt AC/DC 1-LED Green
Indicator bulbs I first used that were annoyingly bright at night were BA9s-G4 for the greens and BA9s-B4 for the blue. I can not recommend them because they are simply too bright.
When I did the speedo and indicator lights I also switched the tail light to
1157-RLX5 dual intensity
12 Volt DC Red 5 Wat Luxeon
This bulb provides brighter illumination than the stock brake light and about the same as the stock tail light. It also fills the lense with light better than some of the other LED options out there and it is as easy to install as a stock bulb.
I changed the front turns to
1157-A30-RA right angle
12 VDC 30-LED Amber
These are as bright as the stock bulbs and have held up well.
The rear turns I first tried were
1156-A30-RA6 right angle
12VDC 30-LED Amber
These bulbs did not hold up. Vibration quickly wiped out some of the soldering inside both bulbs, as in a matter of a couple hundred miles. I replaced the rear turns with
1156-PCB-WV held into the housing with a couple beads of Loctite Stick'N Seal, which came from Home Depot Lowe's Home Improvement: Appliances, Tools, Hardware, Paint, Flooring
These have held up well. I haven't touched any of these bulbs except the 1156 right angles in over 37,000 miles.
EDIT: When you switch the turns to LED they will not flash. I pulled the original flasher and matched it up with an electronic replacement from Advance Auto.
Stock bulb estimated power usage (also posted on another thread)
Headligtht = 55watts
Tail Light = 8 watts
Brake Light 27 watts (when used)
Front Turn Light 27 watts x 2
Meter Lights = 3.4 watts
Neutral Light = 3.4 watts
High Bem Light = 3.4 watts
