    Thank you for all the comments, I took it all apart to find as stated above. 1/4 turn on the base of the bulb and replace. I just couldn"t identify what was the bulb from the back, now I know Now if my eyesight was better I could read the gauges.

    I have heard that the 1600’s need soldering or something. It was easy on my 1700.

    the original bulbs are in little plastic holders that twist into the back of the circuit board. 1600’s are T3’s, 1700’s are T4’s I believe if you’re doing just bulbs. The pictures I’ve seen though of led bulb replacements create massive hot spots. Looks bad I think. The strip light is even lighting all around.
    My 03 circuit board doesnt look that. No plastic holders on the board that the bulb inserts into. Just push and 1/4 turn directly onto the board that are positioned at 8-10-2-4. There is a 1/4" gap between the LED chip and dial face. Maybe the hotspots occur from them being close together on the newer boards.

    brianmac,
    I don't believe you have to remove the needles to access the bulbs.
    After removing the speedometer, then remove the steel plate and the 3 screws that holds the two housing halves together. You should be able to see the back of the board and the bulb holders.

    It’s an Alpena brand light strip. Same ones that autozone or Walmart has.

    It’s not bad for me. The visor helps a ton. But it makes it so easy at a quick glance to look and see clearly.

    That looks really good. How is it riding at night? My older eyes don't like a bright light in the dark. I see you have the visor which I presume helps with glare off the back of the windscreen (or do you have a fairing now)?

    You'd have to look in a manual but I'm not sure you can on the older ones. The newer bikes with the select buttons on the right bar controls you can.

    OK , How do you adjust Dash Light brightness with the Odometer and Clock set buttons on our older models ?

    But you do on the dash don’t you?

    So I took that whole assembly apart and got it figured out and it looks like I need the dorman bulb. Didn't realize they came out from the back side. Got it figured now.
