    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)?

    I put the led strip in mine. No more hotspots and a lot brighter.

    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.

    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.

    I did not know that you could dim them, I will check, how do you do that? But I'm pretty sure they're out as there is one bright spot.

    On my 08, it’s done using the Select and Reset buttons on the right handlebar. DK if older models have it. Check your users manual.

    Shores, I had mentioned that one time as well. But I believe that is only on the latter models (FI?) that use LEDs instead of traditional lamp bulbs.

    I did not know that, how do you do that.
