Default Changing dash light color

Ok so I want to change the light on my dash from orange to red. My bike has the digital speedometer (idk if that changes anything) does anyone know a good way to do this?

Here's mine. It can be done but it require some soldering (and desoldering) skills and alot of patience

Here's all 12 LEDs next to a quarter for size referance

Here is a writeup another member did. Jeff is also a good seller (that's who I got my LEDs from).

I'll warn anyone going into this it's not a job for the faint of heart or without any soldering experience. At the VERY least study up some soldering how-to's on youtube

You can send them to bluegauges.com and they will mod them for you, whatever color you like.

I think yours looks awesome. I don't even think I want red anymore lol. Can you send the link on where u got your parts, and if you're serious about doing it for me, what would you charge?

I got my LEDs from member "jeffjones" got white and blue and only used blue. They're like 15 bucks total to have them shipped to a us addy. I'd install them for you for eighty-five
