Does anyone know anywhere you can get your speedometer lights changed to led's?

    I don't have an answer to your question, but if you start swapping out all lights to LEDs you may end up with stator growl because you're not drawing enough power.

      Same here
      I'd rather die on a motorcycle than live without one.

      I did too, but I wasn't 100% sure.

      I guess my question should have been about changing the color. Not sure if they're already led's

      Yes you can change the LED lights to different colors, but man that looks to be tedious.
      I thought about it but after seeing what was involved I bailed out.

      You may be able to add a color changing strip of LEDs around the outer edge on the inside of the speedo. Not sure how well it would fit, but I could see it possible working. Then you could run the controller under the seat and easily change the colors to anything you wanted.

      Thanks for the idea! I don't want to tackle it myself and mess up my speedo, I just need to find a company that does that kind of stuff. They have to be out there some where.

      With what I am suggesting you shouldn't have to mess with any components of the speedo besides removing the cover. It's pretty unintrusive.

      You would have to tie into the existing wiring somehow or run new wire which turn out to be a bad idea IMO  :thinking: :shrug:
