DIY : Gauge cluster LED mod

I did the mod on my zx-6r but I would assume it is the same on any bike with an LED backlit gauge.

Im not responsible for anything you break do at your own risk

Step 1 : remove windscreen

Step 2 : Remove plastics to get to mirror bolts

Step 3 : Remove Mirrors

Step 4: Remove bolts holding in the gauge and mirror bracket

Step 5: Unplug gauge cluster ( seen in pic above as well)

Step 6: unscrew gauge cluster from bracket ( self explanitory)

Step 7: Gauge is now free

Step 8 :
disassemble gauges

Step 9 : call in your boy to solder for you :lol:

Step 10: remove all the LEDs and replace with the color of your choice

note: to find the right size for your bike you would either need to look on some forums or open the gauge cluster up yourself and find out ...

The larger white squares are the LED's

Test the gauge before reassembling the entire bike

and then follow the same instructions reversed to assemble the bike

Enjoy your new gauges !
