Question Gauge lights

I've read that the lights in the accessory gauges, fuel, oil pressure, air temp/oil temp, AMPs, can be changed easily.
I recently bought the oil temp gauge and saw where I think the bulb/LED goes into the back but I'm a little leary about forcing it out. I don't wanna screw up this brand new gauge.
So exactly how do the lights come out?

Thanks in advance for any and all input.

I used Super Bright Leds WLED-xHP5 When you use these they only go in one way so they will work so before you put your fairing back on turn on lights to see if they work if not pull bulb and flip it around and also I would order a extra bulb just in case

So the LEDs you're referring to come in yellow? If so, what's the web site. I'm searching right now.

I changed mine out a few months ago with red bulbs from the local auto parts store (non LED). Way too dim.
I'll be trying these next. Thanks for the link.

If you are just changing bulb you might try taking out headlights and see if can change them small hands
