I'm pretty sure of what you just wrote but some people might mis-read it.

The Neutral indicator light can be swapped out with a LED without a problem.

The turn signal indicator light can be a problem unless the correct type of LED is installed.
For this turn signal indicator light it must be the kind that will work with the electrical polarity going either way. (+ can be connected to either light contact and it will still work).

 Most LED's will only work if the electrical polarity is only going one way. (if the + connection is hooked to the wrong connector the bulb will not light).

Right Bare and Arizoni!
The Turn Signal Indicator light must be AC capable.  They're marked as AC/DC in the specs like this one:

Edit:  No, they don't operate on AC current, but being diodes the bulb must be wired to light either direction (as an AC light bulb or they will only allow current to flow one direction and will not work correctly in the turn indicator).

Well, at least the Neutral wedge LED swap  works great - that blinding green glare is reassuring for Bullet novices like me with all of 55 miles on the bike.  :)

Update: the same green LED (WLED-G4-32) seems to be working great on the Turn signal arrows as well. Very helpful in bright sunlight. :)
I did get a green AC/DC wedge too (T5-G6), just in case.
