Anyone know if there is a LED bulb that will replace the OEM bulb in the running/brake light and rear turn lights? Would like to keep the "OEM" look,
but add the intensity of a LED bulb.
Thanks Larry

I have not done them on the SilverWing (yet)
I have replaced every light on the Rebel and the Virago with LEDs from SuperBright.
The bulb in the SWing looks like a 3057 base would work.
For the other bikes I have, the 45 LED towers gave a nice light pattern with the OE reflectors.

SuperBright does make LED towers for the 7440/7443 as well.
I'll stick to Rebels from now on.

Big Bird: Do you replace the turn bulbs also and was there any issue
of them not flashing correctly? There is a note at that web site addressing that concern. Thanks for the link to that site....may be used for other applications as well.

Did the LEDs have less peripheral visibility/brightness than the original OEM bulbs?

Big Bird: A couple of follow-up questions: Did you use the 18 count LED or the
30 count LED bulb in your Swing? Also, you suggested to use a red color. Since the lense is red, wouldn't this dim the output? It seems to me that if the OEM was a clear bulb that white would be the way to go? Did you have any clearance issues?
Thanks for your thoughts.
