Just so everyone knows and hasnt searched for it - I swapped the incadesents over to LED in my instrument panel last night. Its so easy it doesnt deserve a write up but I can do one anyways if anyone want.

All you need is Qty:1 - T3 Wedge and Qty:1 - T5 Wedge. No soldering required

You buy these from http://www.v-leds.com/ or maybe a forum sponsor has them?

I did the same with my Suzuki SV650S before I sold it. Just a matter of soldering in the new leds.

So is it as simple as opening up the unit and replacing with LED bulbs?
