    What light bulb does a 2004 Road Star take front and rear? Also license plate light? Looking for led options.

    the rear of an 04 should already be LED

          Headlight bulb is a H4 halogen. I tried a couple of different LED H4 replacements with very unsatisfactory results. They just didn't work well with the headlight reflector that is designed for halogen.

            I am mainly concerned about turn signals. 1056 1057, 7057 base?

              The front, turn / marker lights are a (ba15d) base or #1157 bulb. The rear turn is a (ba15s) base or #1156 bulb.

                This isn't right. I took out the bulbs. The rear is actually 7057 two pins not directly across from each other. On the 1156 the pins are directly across and thus do not fit. Custom dynamics makes both, I ordered the 1156 without checking myself. Assumed the info here was right.

                The front apparently is baz15d-3 base bulb. Custom Dynamics doesn't make, but looks like Radiantz does (https://chromeglow.com/products/3-pi...rcycles?id=751)

                I mention this, so others don't make the mistake I did.

                  Very correct, Sly. Others as well as myself have used the 1157 and 1156 by filing off one pin since I can get them from the local farm store.

                    RPHazen, so you would just have one pin left for the 1156? And you'd file down two pins on the 1157 because I don't see how it would fit otherwise? They both sit in there ok?

                      On the front, run/turn light. File off the pin on the 1157 closest to the base (left side in pic)

                      For the rear turns. I don't have any 1156 bulbs to compare, but you would file off the pin that had a different dimension to the end of the base. Only one terminal on the end so the clocking won't matter only which one is at the right depth.

                        Thanks rphazen.

                        The lights I ordered were LED conversion. Cost about $180 for front and back. If I file/cut a pin off, they won't honor their lifetime warranty.

                        So just to state for anyone doing this, the fronts are actually BAZ base and the rears are 7507 base. Not saying you can't get a 1156 and 1157 base to work.

                        I sent the ones back to CD. They changed me a small fee for damage I caused.

                        But with that said, I got turn signals from Amazon:

                        Front: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

                        Installation of these was a snap. I was expecting to have to file a pin down, but not needed

                        Rear: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

                        Installation of these, was odd, 7507, so should have fit, but the pins were slightly off. Cut one of the pins off and it installed fine.

                        These are good options for the cheap.

                          Oooo... I like the bulbs for the front. White run and amber turns. Clever!

                            Yeah and the install was easier and gives same result as the near $90 custom dynamics ones

                              Do those bulbs from Amazon blink at a faster rate than the stock bulbs? Do they still work on the self cancelling relay?

                                You have self cancelling signals? Yeah they blink at a faster rate. I'm not installing a load equalizer defeats the purpose of leds.

                                  Anyone soldered their own LEDs? I've often wondered about removing the stock LEDs on the tail light board and replacing them with something brighter.

                                    Doc, "back in the day" before custom dynamics, there were guys integrating led turn into the Warrior tail light. I don't know if there is still a how to on the rswarrior.com site.
