Can anyone tell me the stock light part numbers for the radio panel dash on the faux tank?

Thanks,
Robbin

It's not what you buy, it's what you build.

if your going to replace the lights, go with LED . i think superbright has them, but im not sure of the part #'s.
:lol: I know people say we spend too much money on our rides, but I can't hear them when I'm 1000 miles away! :roll:

Part #25

https://www.partzilla.com/catalog/honda ... wing/radio

They 1/4 screw in, they fit, and like yours will last for years. Your radio takes 6. I always replace all 6. I've never used LEDs but have read that they fit incorrectly, and modifications must be made. I believe they LEDs must be held in place with an adhesive or glue.

To replace the bulbs, remove the shelter, flip it over. Most of the screws that secures the "saddle" to the shelter will need removed as well as radio screws. Once the radio is out, remove 4 small screws, and with 2 hands lift the face straight up and off. That exposes the 6 bulb assemblies. The bulbs are easy to remove, lift off, and twist in another. During reassembly, be sure the radio is installed correctly. To verify, the fitment must be correct at the bottom of the radio and the shelter. Be sure to flip over the shelter/radio/saddle assembly prior to reinstalling.

Thank you for the feedback.

I have one thing to add and that is that when I checked the resistance of all the bulbs, only two were dead and the other four had two lower resistance readings of about 5 ohms while the originals are in the 18 ohm area. However, I pocketed all six bulbs and took them to the Honda shop. After 15 years of constant use, just the little jostling in my pocket caused all of the other four to break their filaments too..... justifying why one must replace all six if you change one! The effort to change them is just too great to want to repeat it more than every 15 years!

Regards,

Robbin
