I can't say for certain since I have not pulled this bulb yet to inspect it, but I will say that I have found that Kawasaki uses a lot of odd sized bulbs that seemingly only they produce/market.  I have had to replace a turn signal bulb and it was an odd,  12V/10W bulb that doesn't match anything else I could find, except for OEM parts.  Since spec lists this as a 12V/5W bulb (Kaw #92069-1055), I'm going to guess it's the same thing.  1156 won't fit the turn signals and I'm pretty sure it won't fit the license plate light.

Hopefully someone who has replaced theirs can either confirm or refute.

I've replaced my number plate bulb more than once (bumpy London roads I suspect) and I bought the bulbs off the shelf in a well known car accessories store. Have no idea what the bulb was, I just take the old one in with me when it fails. Same for the low beam headlight bulb which seemed to fail regularly up until the last replacement.
2015 Versys 1000- 71,000 miles, 1 frayed starter circuit wire, 10 shims (over two checks), 6 rear tyres, 8 front tyres, 9 oil changes, 2 sets of plugs, 2 air filter, 8 fork seals,  1 set of head race bearings, 2 chain and sprocket sets, 4 screens, 4 pairs of front brake pads, 2 pair of rear pads (old ones wouldn't' wear out) 9 washes and counting.

Me too at a local motor factors. Interestingly I only noticed it had failed when it was mentioned at its first MOT test, and they still passed it. Apparently its not a fail. I had completely overlooked its existence.

Who knew.

Life, its not a rehersal.

Whats involved in changing this bulb - do you have to remove the sub-frame that holds the top box to release the plastic panel above the light fitting?
