Parking light bulbs

Hello folks

I have an F4 750 1+1 2000 UK model and want to replace the nasty yellowish side light bulbs within the headlight. I don't have the bike currently or my manual.
Apparently they are difficult to get at and seen as my mechanic will have the front in bits within a month, if I can get some bulbs he can fit the little blighters. I can't find the info anywhere, including the MV parts catalogue.

Can someone please tell me what the 2 small side light bulbs are either in size or the UK type.
Are they 5mm capless 12v 3w? I was offered 5w LED 501's that apparently fit an F4 1000s model from 2005 would they fit the 2000 model?

Thanks for any help.

@MVBERT: Those are T10 5W halogen bulbs available at any auto parts store.

That being said, I replaced mine with PIAA T10 HID bulbs in a 6000 color.

With the nose off, remove the headlight lens and the little bulbs just pull out. Easy-peasy.

They are 6000 kelvin and match the bright white of the halogen headlights.

Thanks very much silentservice703, a very thorough response. So the early F4750 and the early 1000's are definitely the same in this regard?

silentservice703 I have gone for your idea and opted for the LED's.
They are not cheap, but they may help those not so observant drivers to see me combined with the Xeon main bulb I fitted.

My mistake regarding stating having a Xeon bulb, just looked that up, and that's a HID set up, I only put in a fancy Xeon effect bulb, which looks much better than stock.
Unless you actually make the effort it seems confusing between Halogen, Xeon affect, Xeon, HID and LED.

Just in the process of finishing approax 2500 of mods etc on my 750, which to me is a lot of dosh(money) I used my compensation from some doughnut who drove into the back of me hurting my neck/shoulder(at one point my left arm went numb) to improve my Italian mistress.

Concentrated on 5 cooling upgrades and several cosmetic flaws. One of the items on the list was to Plasma flame Ceramic coat the first half of the pipes finished in a copper colour. It is supposed to be the most effective of the Ceramic coatings. They did a very neat job and it was very expensive, but this time around I intend to fix a hot bike which melts my body work.

Do you think peeps would want pics of this type of work in the relevant section?
