Have a look at How to replace your handlebar control lights with LEDs. It shows the whole procedure - you can ignore the parts about replacing them with LEDs and use the replacement bulbs that you got.

How far back on the year models does this procedure work for? I have a 97 model, and I have a family member that also has a 96. Would this be helpful for both models, because the lights in both of ours a out, and we like the improvements.

They started in 1990, but in SE's only - if you have an Aspencade, they don't have the lighted controls.

if they only have them for the SE models, what is needed to modify/change on my Aspencade to have that option. I like to be able to see the controls riding @ night, I think it is a good safety option to have.

You'd have to replace the clusters themselves, and set up wiring inside them to run the lights. The Aspencades do not have a place for the light to come through from inside of them.
