For the LED bulbs mentioned in this thread, yes they are significantly brighter. For turn signals and stop bulb locations, this is a "Good Thing!"
Differing opinions will prevail on the INDICATOR bulbs for the dash - depending on which bulb will fit your application, there are some that are brighter than others. I prefer somewhat brighter idiot bulbs since I ride mostly during the day.
For many applications, there are usually a few different bulb options that have more or less LEDs in them, allowing you to choose a level of brightness. In other words a 45-LED bulb will be brighter than an 18-LED bulb. Same concept for the dash bulb replacements.
I don't know the details about the dash bulbs for a 95 RT, but if you can provide pictures and measurements I'd be happy to recommend some SBLED.com replacement ideas.
When I get home tonight I will post some 1156/1157 recommendations (or you can scan the prior posts in this thread).
I used the 45-LED 1156 bulbs and I love them... Brighter AND significantly less power draw.
Current: 93 R100GS, 04 XR650L

I love every motorcycle I've owned and even some that I haven't.
