aftermarket idiot light

I'm trying to find a place that sells warning lights (idiot lights) for my alternator charging. I'm using a LED and it won't work correctly because of the amp tolerances. I believe I need a 12V/ 50m type light for it to work properly. I want to install it in my dash. Thanks.

No need for the lights. The Harley Davidson ones work fine. I connected the ignition wire to a wrong source that had a resister. When I connected it to the other side of the resister, it worked fine. The Harley idiot lights are pretty nice because they are small and sit flush with the dashboard. They came on 85-87 FXLR Harleys
