Position Light replacement?

Postby rjlv25 » Sat Jun 08, 2013 7:41 pm



Does anyone know if there's a replacement bulb for the position lights on each side of the headlight or do you have to buy from the dealer? It says T4 12V 4W Stanley 206. Haven't been able to find one in the auto parts stores.

They are common bulbs - try looking on Amazon, you will find them there.

I found LED replacements on Amazon and love them... Much brighter than the original. While you have it apart install a Silverstar headlight bulb.... fantastic.

Do you have any info on the LED bulbs? Part numbers? Brand? I did put a Silverstar H4ST bulb in when I had it apart. I rarely ride at night, but figured it might help me be seen in the daytime.

Thanks. I get part of the page and it says they are currently unavailable.

Lots of other suppliers online. That is the bulb type you will need. Good luck
