    New grips vs old... the old ones were great but they didn't last, hopefully these dominos last a bit longer. They are awesome so far.

    Wow, everything except the clutch basket has already turned up. Including the rings from China, which look alright and are the right size. Basket should be here on Thursday.

    Gotta love megazip, each tiny dash bulb the size of your pinky end came in individual boxes the size of a small oil filter... lol.

    Dash globes... done. One more job ticked off.

    Before. Hard to tell, but the lower half of the speedo was not well lit, and I had no backlight at all on the temp gauge.

    Removing the front fairing was fairly easy. Mirrors off, two bolts underneath and the 3 on each side for the side fairings and it pops right out with the headlight secured.

    Old globes... most likely cooked when the reg/rec went an eon ago

    After - speedo is much brighter and I can see the temp gauge at night. Kind of important.

    Didn't know what size bulbs and how many would be needed. Now I do, so I can go LED in the future if I want to

    The T6.5 and T7 bulb's are harder to find in LED,
    but i'm pretty sure you could use T5 LED and possibly modify a T10 LED's to work?

    I'm pretty sure the T6.5 and T7 bulb's have the same size base as a T5, but the T6.5 just has a slightly wider head (6.5mm), and same thing with the T7 (7mm wide head)

    You would need to find some bright led's with a design so it throw's the light in all direction's too, most led's have a narrow beam.
    I've just found and bought some of the new style COB LED'S and am waiting for them to arrive
    I have some older style BA9's COB led's for my 1967 XR Fairmont and they're really bright and throw light in all direction's
    s-l1600.jpg

    These are the T5 COB LED's, but the newer style has longer / brighter head's, but i don't recommend buying them, the one's i got didn't have resistor's fitted and blow within second's of fitting them
    I will play around with different resistor's and see what i can do to make them reliable

    s-l1600.jpg

    I have some other T5's which are ok, but aren't the brightest, but as you can see they have the resistor's fitted so don't blow quickly.
