501 W5W Capless wedge bulbs 12V 5watt is the correct description.
Best of luck finding the right one though, I have tried 3 sets so far to try and match the Philips Extreme H7 main bulbs I have fitted and have not found the correct hue yet. they all seem to be police beacon blue!!
Amazon have a selection and seem to be cheap, I have seen them recommended by another forum, autobulbsdirect.co.uk is another source of info but seem expensive.

Thanks for the link Nickel,
Don't forget to order 360 degree type led's as some have just 1 led and are projector type and are not suitable really.Stock - 16  or 87 seems suitable. I see they do Canbus type also.€7 for shipping is salty.Amazon is  roughly similar price. Also led bulbs are + / - sensitive.

On Ebay you'll find several with free shipping for less money.

No you don't need Canbus for our CT, they are suitable for the 1200GS and cars like Renault etc with the frequent break down systems.....
