Because they have 5 LED's, they should distribute light fairly similarly to a regular bulb. I think they're just a lot brighter and therefore create the hotspots. Attached is a pic (garage lights off, no flash, dash lights on). You can see the hot spots at the top left and top right. I'm quite ok with it, particularly since 0-140KM/h is well lit (I'm not generally riding past 140...) and the tach is lit in the important ranges as well...

Before the LED's, the 160-220 range on the speedo was about the brightness of the entire speedo and tach.


The camera really doesn't pick up the LCD - it's much, much more readable than the picture show.

Yesterday, I bought those for the front position lights next to the headlight. They are too bright to be used in dash panel, I think.

Haven't you replaced the ones for the LCDs?
