LED part #'s

cant tell what model you need part #'s for but if its a 1200 you need 1157's for the running and brakelights and 1156's for the turn signals

just be aware that you need some good "tower" bulbs for the 1200,otherwise the light is not as good as the standard bulbs

part #'s

part #'s should be in your owners manual as to what mc uses,they dont change just because they are leds

since u have a 1500,what is your reason to go to leds since it has an alternator with more power than the 1200's,which is why at one time or another alot of us changed,

Are you asking on the side lights of the bags and trunk or the rear facing stock lights?

Asking about the side lights on the trunk and bags. The reson for leds is for more light, and I'm sill running stock alt.

You are very welcome, that's what this forum is all about.
Have you tried the search tool yet? It works fairly good most of the time to find an answer.

With a bit more work you can replace the bulbs with LED strips and get a lot more light. Purchase the LED strips from http://www.meritline.com/waterproof-led-strips-red-16-feet---p-72360.aspx The strips are waterproof and self adhesive and can be cut to size. here are a couple pictures to show the difference. To replace the bulbs, you have to pry apart the lens from the base, use a heat gun/hairdryer and be careful. Also be sure to use RED LED's behind the red lense...if you use white LED's it will appear pink. Same with the amber!

+1 on the LEDs I did the conversion on mine . Got the strips off ebay very cheap and after a little modding of the stock lens they were in .
On top is the strips and underneath is the bulbs they replaced

I believe in BRIGHT LITES save lives...not loud pipes! The saddlebags have double rows of led strips, the trunks have a single row. BTW I can be seen from space!:ROFL:
