  • Switching to LED - 2003 Silverado

    Hey all,

    I've been shopping for LEDs for all the lights on the bike. It seems pretty easy to find the 7" headlight and 4.5" fog/passing lights. I'm having a hard time with the rear and all the turn signals. Any suggestions? And anything I should keep in mind, like wiring quirks or trim rings?

    Thank youl

    from Solon, IA

    The front turn bulbs use a weird 3 prong plug (or at least my '08 did). I bought switch-back LEDs for it, they burn white and switch to amber for turn. I had to file down one of the pins so it would fit. But the socket is a tight fit so it worked fine. With LED signals you'll get hyper flash unless you put some load resistors in.

      Or buy the appropriate flasher for LED bulbs.

      Yes an electronic flasher will solve the issue.

    HI Brad and thanks for the info.

    Everything I'm seeing (on amazon) doesn't have pronged plugs. It's more single or double socket looking things.
    Kind of like this: https://www.amazon.com/CICMOD-Bullet...motive&sr=1-10

    Am I barking up the wrong tree?

      My bad. By prongs I was eluding to the pins that come off the sides of the base. A standard 1156 /1157 bulb base has two pins to hold it in place. The Yamaha has 3. I'd never seen anything like it before, but this is my first Yamaha.

      This is what I got for the front of my bike. White as running lamps and then switch to amber for turn.

      I had to file off the pin closest to the base of the lamp. The pin midway up the base/barrel is the only pin holding it in. But as I said, the socket on my '08 was a very snug fit and required some effort to remove and install the bulb.
