I installed a blue LED. It worked but was much brighter than the OEM LED, perhaps about 2x as bright. It was distracting particularly for night time driving.

So I added a yellow sticker to the end of the LED and reassembled everything. Now is about the same level of brightness as the OEM LED, or perhaps a bit dimmer. Anyways now I really like it.

I changed my start button to red and would like to change the amber leds next to the headlight and running light switches. Does anyone know the part number or specs for these LEDs from Mouser, Jameco, Superbright, etc? I'm looking to replace D1 in the attached photo.
