If you're replacing all the gauge lights, it's 4. If you're replacing EVERYTHING on your dash (turn signal, neutral, gas, oil, brights), then you'd need 9 lights, I believe.
Glued to the bike, riding every day, rain or shine.

Afflicted by the motorcycle craze. :D

I just did this with purple LEDs I ordered. But the purple doesnt show really, the numbers and lines are still orange/red. Anyone else had this problem?

Well I found the reason. The orange is painted on the gauge face on the back of it.

If someone has spare km/h gauge faces without the orange Im interested in buying.

Glad you posted about this issue. Now I know what to expect when I replace mine. I just ordered a red LED set.

UPDATE

Got the red LEDs. Here's the result.
