When you say instrument lights do you mean the bulbs themselves?  Or the entire wiring harness?  For the bulbs, I buy GE.  Shop is closed for the night.  I will get the number tomorrow.
I have several restored bikes along with a 2006 Goldwing with a sidecar. My wife has a 2019 Suzuki DR 650 for on and off road.

This company sells quality stuff.  They have the dash harness but the bulbs are incorrect.  You would need to buy new bulbs.

I'll check to see what I have...mine are originals that I've rebuilt.  What are you lookinf for...the dash harness?  The gauge light harness?

I just saw replacement sockets but now can’t find them. I have a few older instrument harnesses. I’ll look to see if the sockets are soft. They can be yours if you cover shipping. All the new harnesses as HRM posted will use a modern dash bulbs. Not the 12v3w mini like you need.

Cool, Marcel strikes again, they did my gauges. I never thought to look there.

I decided on the Doremi lights.
also, John Brookes doesn’t have any gauge cushions, he sent a template, I shouldn’t have much trouble recreating some.I have some great material here to use. He got back to me right away, very helpful.

I have no idea how this works. Maybe a member will be able to figure it out.

Yes, very nice work! 

Kawasaki did not do a great job on chrome, particularly on the rear brake parts or the rims.  I have all original chrome on my red Z1B.  Still in good condition.

I sold my other Z1B a month ago.  I had most of the chrome re-done.  It looked too good to be original.
