    LED gauge lights

    Not super exciting or crucial, I know, but I got a few of these yesterday and I put them in my gauge cluster this morning, and what a difference it makes brightness-wise! Now I can see the neutral light even if the sun shines directly on the gauge, which I couldn't before, and same thing if I forget to turn the blinkers off - can't miss it... 2 ambers, one green and one blue + 1 white. The blue in particular will transform the high beam light, it's a very pretty blue!

    Bike is now 100% LED-powered.

    I was in a rush to get them in so I didn't get very good pictures, I think I should have made them darker to better see the difference, as it is it's not really striking, but it really is IRL...

    Nice!!! Do you have one or two bulbs per gauge? I thought mine was two but it turned out to be only one, so I guess I have a spare now... a dark light bulb would be kind of cool too...

    I have LEDs in the gauge illumination of my 450 and it is absolutely better... but I did use a standard bulb for the neutral light so it wouldn't be offensively bright at night (on the off chance I'm riding home from somewhere after dark with the 450, not generally happening)
