Reflectors

I have a question about the reflectors on the covers right in front of the tank. I have amber on right and red on left. Inspection guy told me they were wrong. Both are supposed to be amber. Well I have never changed it unless the previous owner did. If so I wonder how he found the perfect size. He let it go but this is the second time he busted me for it.

The red reflector is probably from the back of a toolbox.
I had all mine off when I painted the plastics last summer, and I`m pretty sure the amber and red reflectors were all the same dimensions.

What are the dimensions if anyone has a bike handy. I'm at work and want to order a couple amber ones. One fell off this weekend.

I replaced my front reflectors with led marker lights. Autozone, Walmart, or others have them.
Turned my rear into a 2nd brake light with a red led marker light.

Anybody know a easy way to make those amber reflectors light up, be pretty cool looking.
