    Right got them all in, and working fine so far! Not amazing coverage for the speedo/tacho (should of probably got the higher flooded LED's). This was taken in the garage during day time, so excuse visibility.

    That lloks pretty good. my rev counter bulbs have all gone. haven't read this thread, but is it pretty easy to replace them with those bulbs you linked to? Do they just slot in? and i take it there is no issue with power being different for the led bulbs to stock originals? I'm crap with electrics and know nothing. Almost gave myself a stomach ulcer trying to sort out new wiring for my rear indicators when I got my Givi rack!

    Also, do you need both the 10mm and 5mm bulbs? Excuse my ignorance :-)

    As far as i know there is no issue with slightly higher bulb wattage... The bulbs just slot right in once you get the backing off, no further mods needed...

    May of done this the long winded way, but here is what I did:

    - You need to take the main headlight glass cover off first
    - Un-clip all of the wiring connections (don't worry about mixing up as clips are all different sizes)
    - Loosen and remove the speedo cable (which runs through to gauge lower case)
    - Unscrew the 3 gauge mount bolts (it detaches in one piece making it easier to get to bulbs)
    - Go around each of the bulbs one by one and replace with LED's (I believe it was 6 x 5mm and 3x 10mm for the ZR7 2001 naked)

    Hope this some what helps, I really know nothing about cars/bikes and didn't take me too long to figure out...

    Good Luck!

    yeah very easy to do and worthwhile.
    i'll try and get a pic of mine with green led's in at the weekend.
    I have put green led's in everything but the high beam light and the oil pressure light which I used white led's

    Thanks for the run through Leery. And shaken, that would be great if you could get a pic up. I've ordered the white LEDs but not s great outlay, so on to greenies if they look good!
