Depends mainly on the brand and the model of the lights in question, but LEDs usually run between 3W and 5W and incandescent are between 20W and 25W.

Thanks Matt. Is there a way to test it? I got some cheap and cheerful LED bulbs off eBay and tested one of them. I wasn't too keen on the lighter shade of orange it gave off but if there is a significant power saving then I'd be cool with it.

A multimeter with an ammeter should let you know.

Afternoon all. Another question from me: any tips on how to get a piston out of a stripped brake caliper? My first thought was to get a hose to it as snug as possible and pump it out, but it just ain't working. Any ideas?

Grease Gun. Air compressor. Drill a hole and hammer it out.

First two I don't have access to. Third one - good idea. Thanks boss.

Be careful where to drill. You don't want to damage the caliper.

I prefer to drill through the piston and then tap it for an M6 bolt. Then you tighten the bolt down and it pulls/pushes the piston out.

I always use a wedge bolt. You have to buy one from almost the same size of your calliper pistons and turn the old piston out.

Mine was very stuck

I reconnected a new master cylinder and it pumped out nicely

Thanks for all the replies guys. After stripping the thread in the caliper I was hoping to reuse the piston in the replacement. But I'm just gunna rebuild the caliper from new.
