    Thanks for the pic. I'm guessing you posted it because of the so-called frustrations other KAT owners have had with the instrument cluster and getting it apart?

    Order the LED bulbs, and it's all plug-and-play?

    They all just fit directly into the stock bulb harness (my bike is full stock)?

    yes, that was the entire point of this thread. no custom one off modifications needed

    well, aside from swapping the polarity of the front turn sig wires, a Suzuki mistake, which doesn't matter if using incandescent bulbs.

    Are all these bulbs the same in the pre kat? Seems like most of these mods are done on post bikes? I would like to do mine since i have all the gauges out at the time. but want to make sure of the part numbers and stuff before i start?

    no idea, sorry, sure on the brake light and turn sig bulbs, but instrument cluster, you need to find out what # bulb they are and match em up.

    do a search to find out what bulb they are

    FWIW I used #t10 wide-angle convex single LEDs in my cluster and they work fine with where i have them positioned and light the cluster evenly.

    Archived thread from 2008 states:
    Taken from another source:

    Bulbs required for 98+ Kat cluster:

    What you need is 4 - #24 for the speedo, tach, clock and fuel gauge illumination. Use # 74 for all other indicator lights. The #74 will fit in the #24 sockets fine but are a bit loose.

    Just one small correction in the light count
    1 red (oil)
    3 green(Neutral and turn indicators)
    *4* blue SMD for gauges(sorry, i forget exactly)
    1 blue STD power for high beam.
    Did you use the WLED-xHP5 with 360 degree spread?

    What Steve said.

    As a note, let me add something here... the FRONT turn signal socket leads on the posts are REVERSED polarity, so you either need to cut the wires and splice in reverse, or carefully use a needle, and pop the leads out of the connector plugs, and reverse.

    incandescent bulbs arent polarity sensitive, LED ones are.. so the fronts will not work until you splice or swap the leads in teh connectors.

    Are you getting just the bulb, or ordering a whole new assembly like a turn signal? Just the bulbs, no wiring needed, plug and play. New turn signals and other assemblies will most likely need wiring done.
