SPEEDOMETER lighting

Post  Duckrider on Thu 4 Oct - 15:38

I have a problem with lighting of the speedometer.

It has never been changed, it is genuine.
The black plate has become gray from the sun, but I do not know if it plays a role in lighting.
It is still difficult to see the speedometer needle.



Do you have the same problem?

Is there a solution or should I replace it?

The light only shows through the white bit and the numbers, not the grey bit, no problem with mine. Have you checked that the bulb is OK and not gone black!

Yes , the lamp is ok.

The meter has enough lighting but, i can't see the indications , as you have no problem there must be something wrong, i will try to change the lamb with the old one as now i use a led one.

I dont think LED bulbs are suitable for instrument lighting. Use the origianal

A good friend gave me an idea. :d\\'-\\':

If I can open the speedometer and remove the metal plate with the speed indications, it might be much more noticeable and beautiful to print in transparent plastic with backlighting.

Something like the one that shows the video below, but with a thicker plastic.
