Default Blown license plate bulb, cannot find replacement

I have a 2015 Gunner.

The lamp is a PM150 clear which is a variation of the red and amber trailer marker lamps that can be found at auto shops and tractor supply company. I can't find it in clear. What gives? I figured it was a 192 bulb or something but no.

I got stuck in a huge thunderstorm and ended up going through so massive puddles. It sucked. The bulb had sand and stuff all over it from the rear tire kicking it up.

I don't know if the gunner shares the license plate assembly with other models. Any idea where I can get this bulb? Incredibly tough to find on google. None on eBay or Amazon.

You might try Victory. You can find a Parts Fiche HERE. Then lookup the part HERE and other places.

Polaris parts lookup HERE.

Will be same as my Vegas.
When it shit itself I just went to an auto parts store over the rosd and got a Narva LED licence plate light it was an almost perfect fit in the old hole.... Shaved it down with rough sandpaper till it fitted and connected and soldered the wires.

Then did a post mortem on the old one. Its a sealed unit so had to cut it open....found a standard globe inside! !!

I guess I just don't understand why they'd go with a trailer lamp. It's an obscure bulb. Everything else can be had on a Sunday at the local auto parts store. This thing is almost non existent online.

read my post above ^^^^^^ it is available at your local auto parts store , just take your old one in and youll fing a new Narva LED thats close to fitting...then shave it down with 80 grit sandpaper and a block till it fits....and wire it up.

Actually, I contacted the bulb maker and they recommended:
foxtaillights.com

I bought two with shipping for $14.00

The dealer wants $20 a piece

I have a flat LED bulb that is s spare from a conversion set for my truck that I may modify this old blown bulb housing to accept. I have some old license plate lamps from my Tacoma that have the sockets so I'm wondering if I can put the socket into the back of the Gunner plate bulb so I can simply pop it on and off like normal but use regular bulbs from a parts store.

Pain in the ass being a new bike but I'd probably do the same or just get a cheap led strip and stick it in there
