    Is there a simple way to change the lights in the speedo from orange to blue?

    I have a 2009 883C. It's flame blue pearl.

    I am looking for some low cost changes to make while saving up for an upgrade from 883 to 1200.

    You need to find out if your 883 has a bulb or led in the speedo. If it's a bulb, you can buy colored ones at most auto parts. If it's led, you're in for some expense, like the link Glider posted. I know the touring bikes use led's for the tach & speedo, and bulbs for the smaller gauges.

    Most speedo bezels are crimped on but they can be removed with some care by lifting them up carefully all the way around the speedo.

    Thanks all. I'll probably talk to my trusty Harley guys about the upgraded speedo/tach.

    If it's crimped like Glider suggested, the lights are probably led, and part of the wiring harness. I was thinking the speedo was in a cup with a couple of nuts on the back, and easy to get apart. My last sportster was an '87 and tach and speedo were in cups.:D
