Product Details


Now you can improve gauge illumination and indicator light function, get rid of poor, broken, or hidden connection problems, while maintaining the stock look of your instrument cluster. How? With the KATDASH LED Instrument Light Assembly for Airheads!

This "KATDASH 7880" LED Instrument/Indicator Light Holder with solid state circuitry fits 1978 through 1980 models (EXCEPT R65), specifically:
10/1977 to 09/1980... R60/7, R80/7, R100/7, R100T, R100S, R100RS, R100RT
Please be SURE you are ordering for the correct type instrument cluster! Different KATDASH units are NOT interchangeable.

Instruments on these models have the Turn Signal indicator (green) on top and the Brake warning indicator on the bottom of the center column of lights. The High Beam indicator is in the tachometer face. The KATDASH 7880 is fully solid state, with two LEDs per indicator lens. The Neutral and Turn Signal LEDs are noticeably brighter than the stock bulbs, thus fully visible in bright sunlight. Also, there are additional gauge lighting locations to help illuminate the speedometer and tachometer better than stock.

If you have a BMW Airhead, chances are you’ve had to open up your instrument cluster in an attempt to repair the flex circuit bulb holder. Even if you’ve been in there only to change bulbs, you must have noticed the effects of age: corrosion, cracked brittle plastic, worn out or broken seals, electrical connections that have failed or are about to. No wonder — you’re dealing with an instrument that’s 30 to 40 years old! And guess what? Most Airhead instrument parts are No Longer Available. So KATDASH has developed a modern, solid state LED bulb holder unit that’s not just a replacement, it’s a plug & play UPGRADE! Simply unscrew and remove your old OEM unit, put the new KATDASH in its place, and restore your Airhead instrument pod to full function with all dash indicators and gauge illumination lights.

The all new KATDASH flex printed circuit board features ‘discreet’ (individual) LED lights soldered to the flex. The unit is assembled on a new reproduction of the plastic bulb carrier body, 3D modeled to match the original bulb carrier. No more bulbs, no more corroded connections for bulb sockets. No more trying to solder the broken copper connectors. No more testing the bulb only to find out the bulb is fine but the flex traces are broken somewhere unseen. And KATDASH has additional resistors in the GEN (Generator) light circuit for the initial “excitement” current to get your alternator spun up, and keep your charging system charging. Works with OEM alternators as well as modern upgraded alternator systems.

KATDASH units are warrantied against defects in parts, material, and workmanship for ONE YEAR from date of purchase. If anything goes wrong with it, send it back for repair or replacement.
