L.E.D. Idiot Light conversion (later Speedmaster)

Hello,
I know the L.E.D. idiot light conversion kits are readily available, but some sellers state they are for models up to 2010 only.
My Speedmaster is a 2016. Has anyone fitted them to a later model, and do they work?

Thank you.
Doug.

I have these on mine and they work well.

Not sure if you need to do the diode mod when just putting in the led turn indicator idiot light or not. I put in led turn signals and had to do the diode mod anyhow, so no experience with just the idiot light conversion.
Edit: mine is a 2013 so should be the same as the 2016.

I did my 2012. Great thing to do. Quick & easy. Cannot see why it would be any different for a 2016.

Could it have anything to do with the CANbus communications between devices? When did that conversion happen?

2009 America with some modifications, a lot of fun that I can ride all day. (sold and miss my 2008 Bonneville, a great daily driver)

I bought the kit that Fast Eddy sells for my 2013 America and they were plug-n-play. I didn't have to mod anything until I put LEDs in all four turn signals.

Thank you, I'll get a set on order.
It's been sunny here in the UK - can't see the indicator or other more important warning lights in the daytime.

Cheers,
Doug.

These DO make a difference. I have them on an older America. Even here in the California desert where the sun is so bright it hurts, you can see the idiot lights in broad daylight. ...J.D.
