LED Bulb for '59 Neutral Indicator Light?

#1

Post by andyinlz »

My neutral light is faint at best with the stock HD bulb, PN 69462-49.

Has anyone found a LED bulb that fits this application?

Or, may you know the industry # for this bitty bayonet bulb?

Thanks in advance.

The Harley part number for the neutral bulb in '59 is 68462-49. The industry number is #55. I know in the past V-Twin has sold bulb #51 as a replacement for 68462-49 (their number 33-0139). This bulb is incorrect (glass globe is the wrong size for starters). Your dash cover should have a shroud screwed to it that encloses the bulb and thus directs its glow out through your lens. Make sure that is there. If you have your heart set on LED, #55 blubs have a BA9s style base. eBay has thousands of LEDs with a BA9s base (I leave it to you to weed through them and find a 6V one) ... Perry

Thanks, Perry.

I'll investigate and report back on fitment and results.
