I have a 2007 Shadow Spirit 1100 and needing to find out if there are lights in the bottom side of the speedometer housing.
When riding after dark, I can see the upper half just fine, but the lower is really dim.
Thought I'd ask first before taking it apart.

Thanks for your help.

Don't know for certain but I believe you have the same speedo as mine, I changed out the OEM bulb (only 1 in toward top of speedo) for a led and it made a huge difference. I can now read my speedo at night, before it was really really dim almost worthless!

this is before the led bulb, but after I took the speedo apart and cleaned it out and cleaned the oem bulb. Its actually a lot better than before I cleaned it but still to dim for my tastes


and this is not a good picture but its after changing out the oem for the led and now I can actually see the speedo at night.

I'm using Sylvania ledriving premium white led light, 168/194/2825 6000k.
I don't remember if it came from Wally World or Auto Zone. I do know that I paid $11.00 for the bulb only because I log all of my costs on a spreadsheet.

YUP I went with the blue also, Only thing about going with blue is the trip meter is still kind of hard to read while riding to watch how many miles before I need gas but love the color so much, I got them from https://www.superbrightleds.com/ but I can't remember which bulb it was. It's late and need some sleep but I'll try and find which bulb it is tomorrow and post it for you, They have quit a few colors to choose from and it was only about $5 when I got it about 2 yrs ago I think. Well did a search and found the right one for you. Turns out it was $3.49, If your not sure which color you like just order 2 LOL That's what I did but put the blue one in and the white one I got is on a shelf some place in a box of spare parts.
This is the bulb you want.

HMM I wonder if the bulbs in our speedometers are different or perhaps they both fit in. I would give them a call and they may be able to help you out, When I called they recomended the one I got but don't remember them having the one xxxxxxxclm1954 ordered, His has more led's on it so may be brighter.

Not overly brighter but def more light, You can read your trip meter and well I can not easily in the dark, May just have to chance $12 and order one and see how it fits.

I remember double checking the dimensions of the LED I ordered. I opened my spedo head and checked how much room I had for the LED to fit in. It was close but it fit.

Good luck Dauntae.

I thought I was the only one on here with the blood of Dracula.
