my gas and temp gauge seems kinda dim. how do you access the bulbs to replace them?

seems to be behind the LCD assembly

i have the gauge cluster and the panel reflecting plate removed but cant seem to see the sockets for them

what size and how many bulbs does this take?


found this out after getting everything together after a speaker upgrade:sadguy:

You need to remove the complete instrument assembly. If you already have the speaker cover off, you should be able to see the Phillips screws holding the instruments down.

i have the instrument assembly on my workbench. was wondering were there bulbs directly behind the lcd assembly

what lamps are used for the temp/fuel gauges?

194, 168, or 24?

Sorry, I misunderstood your post. Unscrew the LCD (you need to remove the speedo and tach first) and you will see the wedge type bulb behind it, just above the fuel and temp gauges.

I've read somewhere that it's important not to turn your gauges upside down as there is a damping fluid inside that can leak out.
Don't know if it's true but just in case.

SmartBiker while you got that out doing bulbs I would remove the guages and clean really good. Mine was dusty and after I cleaned it good and it made a difference. Did you clean and lube speed cable?

It's okay to turn them upside down for access etc., but it's not okay to store them upside down for long periods.

got it done!

used a #24 bulb.

had to completely remove the lcd unit AND circuit board to get to the socket

was very careful with that as to not to damage the ribbon cables attaching the lcd to the circuit board.

had to replace the cruise on bulb while i was in there
