Led bulb change

Earlier model xs11s had no running lights in front. The fronts were t/sig only. Later models were both.

When buying LED replacements, you will need either 1156 or 1157 (Amber).

LED bulbs for instruments are 194 type. Match color to lens. Standards have clear or white. (tach and Speedo -2 each). Indicator panel uses 2 Amber (t/sig indicators), 1 red (oil pressure), 1 green (neutral), 1 blue (high beam), and 1 white or clear (headlight).

Bulbs can be bought in different lumens. Clear or white can be cool white or soft white.

I used 194s with multiple LEDS for the tach and speed.

Got all bulbs and emergency flasher from superbrightleds.com. Have used their products on many vehicles for years.

Another 11 survives being parked

Not mine, Brent's xs11

Brent's xs11 had been sitting a year or maybe 1 1/2 years. Not good. So I met up with him the other day and went over to help him get it running.

Cases were starting to corrode a bit but Brent got them cleaned up nicely. Good to see the bike back on the road again. Brent was smiling. Good carb bowl flush seemed to do the trick. If the bike had just been started the jets would have gotten clogged immediately.

That's what you get for being a Harley snob Brent.

Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.
