What type are the turn signal light bulbs

If I were to replace my tail turn signal light bulbs with red LED, what type of bulb would I be looking for.

the only thing I could find was on the owner manual and it says the tail light indicators are 12Volt, 10 Watts. But is there not a number for the bulb? like 1156 or 1157 or something like that.

For the more inquisitive, I am gonna make the turn signal light bulbs run/turn.

    You'll have to lend your bike out and follow it just to see if its  :062:

    Hi Ndo,

    My trophy SE was delivered last week, and it was "equipped" with BAU15S type turn signal bulbs, 12 v 21 Watt....



    Perhaps other owners can confirm this higher wattage ?

    Bear in mind that you may have to place a resistor ( or other turn signal relay) when placing LED turn signal bulbs.

    Tropa,
    where you get this info from? My owner manual says its a 12volt, 10watts bulb.

    And what one would need to know to replace the OEM is that number type for the bulb: 1156, or 1157 or something like that.

    Hi Ndo,

    So does my manual, but I removed the front bulbs and it says, on the bulb itself, 12v 21w.
    Could be because I have a "fresh" european bike.

    Tropaion,

    Are you looking at the front light bulbs?

    I am looking for LED replacements for the turn signal light bulbs, not the front.

    NDO,

    This is one of the actual turning light bulbs.

    BTW,
    You can easily check what type of turning light bulbs there are in your bike.    Page 157 in your user manual:



    Front Direction Indicator Bulb
    Replacement
    1. Rear view mirror
    2. Indicator bulb holder
    Fold out the rear view mirror towards the rear
    of the motorcycle.
    Rotate the right hand bulb holder
    anti-clockwise to release it.
    Rotate the left hand bulb holder clockwise to
    release it.
    Replace the bulb.
    Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure
