mine bulb went out on my v star last season. i went to the local yamaha dealership and the guy at the parts desk sold me the bulb for about $5. i just gave him the year, make, and model, and he was able to find the part with that information.

That is a fairly easy task.
Remove the speedo bezel, and disconnect the wires and the speedo cable.
Remove the rear seat, then remove the front seat.
Unbolt the gas tank, turn fuel off, disconnect fuel line, slide tank back then remove.
Unscrew speedo cable from speedo drive at front wheel axle.
Note routing of speedo cable, remove speedo cable, install new cable using same routing as old cable. You will probably have to spin the inner cable to get it to properly engage the drive mechanism at the bottom. If you install the bottom first, you can turn the cable at the top with your fingers until the bottom fully seats.
Give each fitting for the speedo cable a slight twist (1/8 of a turn past finger tight) with a pair of pliers so they don't come loose
Reinstall all remaining parts in reverse order of dis-assembly.

Take the instrument bezel off the tank, and look at the following diagram.

SOURCE: V-Star speedometer light
I have no experience with this model ... on the other hand, I have never seen a unlit speedometer on a motorcycle even going back to the 1957 Crushman scooter!.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your help, will check it out before I go to the trouble of taling the spedo off the tank. Martin."
Perusal of a parts manual shows the bulbs to be in sockets with wires hooked to them which press into the outer back of the speedometer head, remove the offending socket (the one on the top, the other 4 are the function lamps I previously mentioned) by gently pulling it outward, the bulb will slide out for replacement.
Have fun and good luck.
