Hi Guys,

There seemed to be more green light on the insrument pod on the right than the left side so I removed the instrument pod and put TWO new green bulbs in and there's no improvement, still more green light on the right. Before I take the pod off again is this just the way it is or are there more than 2 green bulbs? I can't find out from either Haynes or Clymer. With the benfit of hinsight I should have looked when I was in there are tested the new bulbs were working - but hey ho. Very Happy

Thanks
Dave

There are 2 on each sides. They are the ones mark +/-. The middle one is to light the clock.
The +/- are the polarity if you want to install LEDs

That's brilliant, thank you Bert very much. I'm gonna stick with OEM for the time being as I actually like the level of light. Not sure why I assumed there were only two but there you go... Shocked

Best

Been away with work a while but back now and had a go at this again. Found that three of the green bulb contacts had one side of the printed circuit folded back under itself so there was no current to the bulb holder or bulb! Unfolded them and now all seems to be fine.Also found one of the green bulbs was actually a clear bulb painted with green paint so that had to go as well. Struck me again how well put togwether these bikes are and easy to work on - everything unbolts or unscrews. Small things make me happy Very Happy

All the best
Dave

Lo primero, las fotos estan tomadas completamente a oscuras.

Y aunque no lo parezca, ya somos varios en coincidir que la luz procedente del cuadro no molesta a la conducción, teniendo una lectura clara y rápida.

Por otro lado, menos comprobado que en las lamparas que utilizamos, el conductor mas corto era el positivo, para eso desplegamos los conductores como podréis ver en la siguiente foto. (Ojo los conductores salen cada uno por un lado)

y tambien marcamos donde estan los positivos y negativos para montar en el cuadro.

Si os fijáis pusimos un poco de typex en los portalámparas para diferenciar los polos + y -

y por último estos son los led que montaba Juanjo,(de un diodo) y los nuevos, son de cinco.
