Default Speedo question

My bright light indication has quit working. (the blue light for high beam). Has anyone replaced lights inside the speedo? I seems to me that they should be replaceable. 1999 V92C #480

I don't know if they are or aren't. Have you found any info on it? I'll take a look in my service manual when I get a chance and see if there's anything about it

Thanks Ghost. It will be a few days but I plan on pulling the speedo and seeing if I can get into it. The Vic dealer said it looked like there were some replaceable bulbs but all part numbers he has it no longer available. Is Vic trying to get us to buy new bikes? They should be proud how many of the original bikes are still on the road. Seems that would be an advertising bonanza.

I couldn't find anything in my book about it. I would think it would have some kind of replaceable bulb, but it's hard to tell without taking it all apart

The high beam, signal lights, oil light, & low fuel lights are LEDs soldered into the circuit board and are not replaceable without trashing the speedo-there are 4 microbulbs that back light the dial that are replaceable.

Thanks, My high beamindicator quit after doing some work in the headlight bucket so maybe it's a connection issue and not the LED. I'll have some time to look at it soon and will post back.

If your going to open the headlight bucket up pick up a tube of diametric grease and clean the military pin then pack it with the electric grease. Will help during those heavy rains. May help the high beam indicator.

+1 on the dielectric grease. Might hit it with some contact cleaner too

Today I had time to check and clean the connections to the speedo and look at the bulbs that are replaceable. As ByteN2it said the hi-beam is a diode and I'm not messing with that. After putting it back together the high beam indicator is still out. When it quit I was watching and it appeared to die a slow death. It would dim then flicker and dim some more until it was out completely. That seems strange for a diode, it died more like a filiment bulb.

I wonder if it might be in the high low switch on the handlebar?? Although the high beam is switching on and off normally.

Today I took the dimmer switch apart since it was sticking when placed to the down spring loaded position (low and high beam together). I had doubts that the sticking switch had anything to do with the high beam indicator light it was a long shot at best but the switch needed cleaning and lubing anyway.

If anyone decides to do the same let me warn you that there is a spring and small round steel ball inside the switch that will not be easy to find if you aren't real careful, don't ask me how I know. The spring and ball provide the detent operation of the switch.

Guess I'll have to live with no high beam indication. oh well.
