Ned help to find right bulb for under tip over wing

I am trying to find a LED replacement bulb for the lights under the tip over wing. I'd like to replace the stock one with a LED equivilant, but I am having a real problem even finding a stock bulb replacement.

On the bulb, it has the following ...

6432LF Osram 12v 6w
H6WU E1 2EV W558

I've done a Google search with no real results. It is a bayonet bulb. Two pins on the bottom on oposite sides. I'd like to find a part number I can use to search for LED replacements. If anyone can help, I would appreciate it.

Re: Ned help to find right bulb for under tip over wing

FWIW, I may have found an appropriate bulb at SuperBrightLeds.Com. These BA9s ...

https://www.superbrightleds.com/BA9S6_specs.htm

I ordered a pair as they were only $6, and will see if they fit.

The company also has some interesting LED marker lights that might fit on the back of the wings too. I'm going to do some measuring then some thinking.

Larry at Riderwest has ya covered on that setup too. AND, I think Raffy is carrying the tipover wing light sets as well. Both a supporting vendors for our community.

Re: Ned help to find right bulb for under tip over wing

I was not looking for the tip over light kit, thanks for trying though, but the under wing marker lights int he 2005 & up models. I may have found some that will work, but nit woto make eed to try them out to see. Not sure how a directional cluster LED will work there and I may need to use a single LED 90 degree version to make it work. And then I'm not sure how bright a single LED version will be, so I may need to make a custom array.

Bulb Works, here's a pic

The replacement LED bulbs I ordered worked pretty well. I was afraid they would be too directional, but that is not the case. They light up the underside pretty well.

The bulbs I ordered were ...

BA9s-x4-12V LED Bayonet Base bulb

From SuperBrightLeds.Com for those of you with an interest.

The picture of the bulb was taken in my garage during daylight. My camera was about 3 ~ 4 inches away. I'm going to take another look at night, just to see what they look like, but I expect it will work pretty well form what I can see of the light level.

Works well

Well for those that want to know, it does work pretty well. When I power off the motorcycle, the underwing area and a few feet to the sides & front are lit up in soft blue glow.
