What size bulbs
« on: August 12, 2019, 09:13:37 PM »
Can I use ordinary bulbs in this cluster or must I get Honda bulbs which seem quite expensive (as does everything else I need)
If so what would you recommend.

I bought some LED equivalents at Shepton Mallet which fitted ok, so they're available somewhere.

You need round ones as against long ones

I use LED too in my K7 750. Much brighter light especially for turn signals
