I have an 1198S and wanted to put BAX9 led bulbs in. They have them online auction. Stupid idea?

Another thing, my 1198S has 150 miles on it and we discovered a factory defect in gas tank. Installer overtorqued or crossthreaded a screw which attaches sthe mounting clip to the tank, and created a hairline crack that the big thumper enlarged after short use.

First the easy one:

A fuel tank leak is a warranty issue get Ducati to fix it.

Light bulbs, what do you want to use the bulb for? If it is the indicators, then you will need to either place a resistor in parrallel with the bulb or replace the flasher with an electronic version to prevent the flash rate becomming very fast.

Secondly led bulbs are quire directional with a very narrow spread so unless you're looking directly at the source they can be quite difficult to see in daylight - consider this when placeing them, you don't need to be involved in an accident with the excuse "I didn't see his lights officer".

I'll take it that you want to use the BAX9 on the parking light sockets, I had them on my 1098 and was a good mod., just remember when you put them in that one of the sockets, I can't remember L or R has a reversed polarity, wich means you have to pull the 2 spade connectors on the socket and invert them, easier to do it than to explain but don't think you have a burnt out bulb when you put them in, not likely!
The gas tank is a warranty issue, I wouldn't touch it, just get the dealer on it!
Good luck!
