Looking for the correct bulb number for replacing the goofy cylindrical brake light bulbs on the trunk corners

Looks like old VW dome light? Pointy on ends maybe?

I expect that's an aftermarket kit in there. OEM didn't have any lights in trunk corners, they were reflectors only.
OEM brake / running lights were towards center.

Correct, the corner lights in the trunk on a GL1200 are an aftermarket accessory. Here is the link to OEM and includes details on the bulb.

A worthwhile addition IMHO but a good candidate for a LED upgrade.

The reason for wanting to know the correct bulb number was exactly that I wish to change the corners to LEDs as I already done to the 1157 trunk lights to help with headlight dim during braking
