Bulb for tachometer

Does anyone know what bulb the tach backlight takes? Mine is flickering and I don't want to take it apart without a replacement in hand.
Thanks in advance

Just a common peanut bulb. #194 I believe is the technical term you would ask for at an auto parts store. Or better yet swap out all of them for LEDs from superbrightleds.com

That's what I did. And you can change the color while your at it, if you so choose.

Wait I probably should have started with what year is your bike? My comment applies to the gen 2 models. If its a gen 1 someone else will have to chime in.
