Various light bulb part numbers and sizes
12/11/10 at 16:05:35
 
I looked all over and can't find the size of the lights in the speedometer (turn signal indicators, high beam, backlight, neutral light). Also, I couldn't find a conclusive size for the turn signals and license plate light. If anyone knows the sizes, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have to replace my speedo bulb as well, I believe somewhere on this site it was recommended that I get a 194 bulb, but I got them from my local Advance Auto Parts store, and they far too large. They seem to have the same wedge "style", but alas are a few millimeters too large.

I called them back after reading this thread and asked about a 14v3w bulb and they could not locate one in their inventory.

Then I check an OEM site for the specs and I see this:
http://www.motosport.com/cruiser/oem-parts/SUZUKI/1995/SAVAGE-650-_-LS650P/SP...

It states a   BULB (12V,3W) | MODEL GMODEL J/K/L/M/N/P  So, I'll check back with them tomorrow after I can bring the original burnt out bulb and see what's up.

I was looking at the wrong model type for the 12v3w bulb. Verslagen is correct, it's a 14v3w bulb. Some of my local Advance Auto Part store don't carry them, but cycle shops should.

If you know what bulb you need...you can most likely find an LED version from these folks.  I go the LED bulbs to use in my turn signal conversion from these folks...and they work great in my application.

@Dave you're probably going to hate me for necro posting, but this thread seems to be the most thorough testing of LED bulb replacements for the stock housing on the site. I know there have been various replies throughout the forums since this thread died which recommend H4 led bulbs, and I plan to go searching for the answer. Does it matter anymore? Are most created equal in 2021? (Bold claim I know)

But, is there a consensus on which brand(s)/part number today can replace a halogen H4 for an LED AND meet all the street reqs (throw, cutoff, vibration, etc)? If so, thoughts on adding it to the resource/ToC section?

They are not all created equal - there still is a lot of crap being sold.

For the best value bulb that has a good light pattern - I like the Lasfit bulbs.  They have an internal driver so you don't have to deal with fitting and extra box into the headlight.  They come in pairs for cars - so you get 2 bulbs......you either have a spare or need to find a friend to split the purchase with you.  The only downside of this light with the internal driver is that you get some light flicker at low rpm - and it can affect FM radio reception.  This is the bulb I use when space is an issue.

The absolute best bulb is the Cyclops.  It is big and has an external driver.....I am not sure it will fit into the stock Savage headlight bucket.  I have this bulb in my Cafe' bike with the larger headlight bucket and it is amazing.....I have the H7 version in one of my other bikes for both the low and high beams.

That almost sounds like a fun purchase just to experiment 😉 Full disclosure, I'm buy a new housing, but sticking with the 5.75" size so I anticipate the same or comparable space.

Thanks for the reply.
