    I seem to recall that they are the simple wedge style bulbs you will find at the local auto store. Pull the headlight and take a look.

    Pretty easy to open the gauge cluster...when I did mine, I replaced all the bulbs with LED’s. Just make sure you use the correct colors..ie, amber for turn signals, green for neutral and cruise, blue for High beams.
    I used red for the speedo and tach which I wouldn’t recommend (thought it would look cool). If I were to do it over I’d go with off-white or maybe green.
