I have a 2000 SS.
I bought these mirrors with integrated lights by Ducati:
...and have found that the BULBS in these are NOT THAT BRIGHT and to top it off when the mirrors are positioned correctly..for my viewing pleasure...most of the REFLECTOR LIGHT faces the ground.
Has anyone substituted these, what I believe to be 194 wedged bulbs for LEDs? The bulbs are 1-1/2" long x 3/4" wide #12V10W.
I've had mine on my bike for almost two years now. The bulbs are beginning to fade, so they are blinking more white, than orange (they must be orange here in Denmark). Instead of buying new bulbs I think I will make a small LED insert with orange LED's that fits inside the glass. These will last much, much longer with no fading, and will be much more bright than the original bulbs...
