    Re: Led bulbs

    I put a stop/tail LED bulb in my Road King, and that will probably have the same light assembly you have. I think most Harley tail lights are the same around that year.

    I put a white one in and it was so bright, you could easily see the white shining through the red lens. So, I bought a red bulb and that cured it. It's bright....very bright, and all red.

    When you put the brake on, you could probably see it from outer space, and it's instant.

    Buy a red one and not a white one.

    Have you got a link to where you bought the bulb?

    Re: Led bulbs

    I got it from Ebay a few years ago. My purchase history doesn't go back that far.

    I've got the box at home somewhere, so I'll find it, and put something on here along with some photos of the bulb.....that's if I can do the photo thing...it can't be that hard.

    Re: Led bulbs

    This is the original bulb, note the strange connections. This is what is fitted as standard.

    This the LED bulb I fitted, it's 360 degree beam. I didn't pull it out for fear of breaking it. It's got the same connection as the standard one.

    This is what it looks like when lit up. If it was white, you can clearly see it through the red lens, so I chose a red one.

    I couldn't find the box, so no part number available, but it's easily available on Ebay. Just get the right connection, 360 degree shine, and in red.
