What were these guys thinking with this instrument cluster?
I can't even find the bulbs for illuminating the speedo and tach, let alone replace them.
I see bulbs for all of the idiot lights but maybe I'm just too dim witted to find the gauge lights.
Sorry to ask such a stupid question but where the heck are they?

Top: the two that is furthest away from center.
Bottom: one in each corner, ....and one in center (clock, if present)

Wish I could figure out something to light up the gear indicator a bit better at night. I also found the clock illumination to be so lousy that I evicted the LCD clock in favour of a 52mm analogue version mounted in the fairing.

No success with the lights but two of the plastic bulb receptacles fell apart when they were pulled out. It's hell getting old, I guess.
