I´ve bought som blue LEDs for the gauge cluster, instead of the yellow ones.
But when I took it apart, I couldn´t reach all of the LEDs because of the RPM disc and the screen.
And I didn´t want to take to much apart, in case I broke anything.
So my question is, has anyone tried the same, and give som hints how to take it apart?

I've done it on my 929 and it wasn't very fun... The LED's are very small and hard to get to. U have to disassemble the whole thing. Take your needle off and your rpm disc. Some of the LED's are hard to get to, u will see why once u take everything apart. I didn't take off my digital readout cluster because it didn't appear to come off unless you had some extensive training in computer parts. I'll warn you now, I believe there is a total of 14 LED's in the cluster and when I changed em out only 3 of the 14 worked.

I have taken the whole thiong apart, and it looked VERY difficult.
Think I´ll skip my next attempt, and live with the yellow ones

I tried the same with my 929, and cracked my LCD in the process, i would not recommend it to anyone.

in hindsight, i thought i should have taked the clocks and new LEDs to a electrical repair shop and the would have had a better chance

Didn't you test them out before hand? :rolleyes:
twin, they are about 3mmX3mm squares and they solder staight onto the PCB so you cant "plug them in" and check them.

they are a rite pain, there is a couple behind the LCD too, you have to remove the LCD to get to them, i cracked my LCD in the process:crying:

They look really cool, but I was wondering as to the hassle involved with the instalation, and now from what you're saying its a bit of a mare:eek:
