    You got me on this one. I'm willing to bet that someone on this forum has done it before. Have you tried doing an internet search/ katriders search for it?

      Here ya go fellas....this has some info about an LED change that a member on here did to a 2000 kat.


      On the pre-98's, its a simple matter of removing the windscreen and pulling the bulbs from the back of each gauge pod. The bulb types are #74. I replaced the three in my pre-98 with super-bright white LEDs from http://www.superbrightleds.com

      Hope this helps.

          yeah i did it .. not pics though as it is pretty easy to do. you used to be able to get the buld w/ sockets and just plug them all in. Someone mentioned they no longer stock those where i bought mine a few years ago.

            +1 ... best thread I've seen on the matter. Debating on whether I want to spend $100+ on LED's to upgrade the gauges & signals. Think it's worth $60 for a pair of these?
