The speedo does have a back light, if you look at the bottom of the housing you will see a little grey round rubber thing with wires sticking out. That's the back light. Mine was blown too when I bought the bike, I think its a generic 3 watt bulb. Just R&R.

On the LED's, I don't know, I'm figuring that out as well.... Anyone to clarify on use of LED's would be great. I am looking at going LED on turn signals, maybe the brake light, but I want them bright too and a decent price. I don't know if I have to use a relay, or if I can just remove/replace with the cluster style led bulbs...
