Congratulations on reaching your goal for the day.
Just for reference I looked up my parts list for the exchange on my 85 K100RT. Here's the list and a photo of the results. Sorry I didn't take a "before" picture for reference.
I swapped out the backlight and other bulbs in the instrument cluster on my 85 K100 RT with LEDs from http://www.superbrightleds.com/
They have a large selection and will probably have what you...
That sounds like a very good day. Thanks for sharing. :thumb
Pictures look great. Waiting for more!

So far, so good.
I've had several round trips to work and many other short trips around town and have not encountered any problems.
Still don't know exactly what the problem was, but...
I've spent the better part of today going over all the wires and connections in the wiring harness. I used a volt/ohm meter to check voltage/connectivity at different points in the wiring harness. ...
Unfortunately I haven't had time this week to work on it or to risk being stuck on the side of the road (work and kids keep me busy).
