The high beam indicator light isn't working. Would like to order before pulling it apart. Manual states wattage but no part number.
Probably switch to led.
I think it might be a BA9s?

Also would like to confirm what bulbs the speedo uses too. Thanks!
Me thinks its a 194?

The speedo takes a standard 194 wedge base bulb. The three indicator lights are the BA9 mini bayonet's.

If you go with LEDs, match the LED to the lens color. So get a blue LED for the high beam, green for neutral/turn, red for tail/brake, ect. White LED's(particularly the "cool" or "bright" hues) tend to "wash out" lens color.

I went with a "warm white" LED for the speedo, which is similar in hue to the regular bulb just a lot brighter.

Avoid the super cheapo ebay LED bulbs. Poor quality and they tend to start flickering/crap out pretty quickly. I get them from superbrightleds.com and always had good results.

By chance could you post up the exact numbers you went with? I looked around at Superbrightleds however there seems to be a plethora of options and I didn't end up ordering anything yet. Thank you!
