My turn signal indicator (teeny tiny bulb) keeps blowing and neutral too once in a while. Does anyone else have this issue or is just my bad luck? Resistor suggestions?
Actually, from KTM you don't even get the bulb- i made that mistake so now i have all 3 of those little housings floating around the shop too. just bring one of the dead bulbs to any bike shop and tell them you need dash lights. when i went, he pulled out a container of misc. ones and matched it up- i think i paid a buck for 5 or 6 of them and this was at a suzuki dealer...what is the generic part number used for this bulb?...seems if you go through KTM to get it, they want you to buy the entire little assembly along with the new bulb.
to my knowledge, no LED light is DOT approved for headlights. People still do it, but its technically not legal and i think they have a pretty shitty light pattern anyway. If you really want top notch light- do an HID conversion. search the street tard forum, several guys have modded stock light housings with HID's and they crank out a ton of light.looking on superbrightleds.com and this is what I have come up with so far as direct replacements for our stock bulbs....please tell me if I am right or wrong thanks.
Indicator Lamp Bulb - 24-xHP Sub-Miniature Wedge Base bulb
1 High Power SMD LED, 120 degree beam. Fits W2x4.6d base - Replaces 286 2721 Sub-Miniature Wedge Base bulbs
Tailight Bulb - part # 1157-R19W6
Headlight bulb - H4-WHP H4-WHP9 1 or 9 120 degree High Power SMD LEDs, 120 or 360 degree beam
(This is what i am confused on for the headlight application)
((DRLs do not produce enough light for head lamps and are only intended for fog light replacements, show, and daytime running applications.))
is this just a disclaimer or can you really not use these as headlights? If you can would the 120 or the 360 be better?
please let me know if I am wrong on any of these and please give the correct replacement according to superbrightleds.com....thanks
