Default LED bulbs in rear?

Ok so I know that the MBW LED lights are the best option for the Vision but the cost is a huge no go at the moment. What bulbs do the factory brake and turn signals use (1157?) and how do I get at them on the Vision?

there 3157's. By the way vision have dark red lens and some lED's don't light up bright. If you do LED's you want a flasher out of a CC cause they have LED's. Never cut wires use a pick
Say now many rear brake lights light up. Just the bottom ones

By changing to the leds you will lose cruise control and get rapid flash, i fixed my rapid flash by using a cross bike flasher module, but you need to change all the bulbs to leds, front and rear, like everything on the vision changing the bulbs is a pain in the ass, you have to take most of the rear apart

Does replacing the flasher with the one from the CC also make the cruse work again?
