If anyone is having trouble replacing the LED's under the display try using a desoldering tool otherwise called a solder sucker. Just heat up the solder with the soldering iron then use the spring loaded solder sucker to "suck up" the solder then remove the display, replace the LEDs then reinstall and display and resolder the pins.

quick question going to try this on my cluster. For those that did the RPMs in green, I was looking at someones picture that was in green and it looked like the redline doesnt really show with green LEDs, is that the case or is it just the pictures. I ordered 10 whites and 10 greens. Thinking about having the RPMs go from green to white to green and wanted to make sure the green up to next to redline will show good.

Has anyone replaced the resistors to match the forward voltage output of the LED's they are installing?

Kawasaki OEM orange LED's I believe (need to look) use a much lower voltage to drive the output than say a white or red led would need. This will cause varying brightness (mcd) levels between different colors.

Bumping a dead thread. Don't even know if the people who did this and were originally posting are still on this forum. My question is what is stopping you from taking the board apart completely instead of just bending it back and trying to work between it?

How did you guys pry that lcd screen? I feel like mine is going to snap. I can pry it so little, it won't even give me any space to remove any of the lights behind it..
