    I'm having some problems with the idiot lights on my 1996 XL1200C.
    The problem is the tiny bulb holders are past their best.Does anyone make L.E.D. replacements? Mine is the one that is fitted into a slot in the top of the handlebar clamp.

    All the parts to replace the indicator lamps should be available from a dealer if you let me know which parts are being difficult ill try and find a part number for you but as your model of sportster first appeared in 94 i have a parts list for the 94 sportster and from on line i have found that most parts were still the same in 99 so they had a long life
    otherwise you may need to start looking through the zodiac or custom chrome catalogues for alternatives which are often more expensive and of lower quality

    I got them working again.Took out all the bulbs,cleaned up the contacts and gave them a wee squeeze to tighten them up.They are all working again for now.

    Sounds like a good cost for the repair
