Perfect, thanks guys, will have a look.  Yip, the standard ones don't last very long.

Looks like Startline is offline or something...I will continue the search.

Actually very sad that KTM brings out such an AWESOME bike, but just about everything should be changed/replaced with aftermarket in order for it to be that AWESOME.  Exhaust is running sooo hot feels like you can enjoy your leg for lunch when you stop somewhere...  Air-filter is just crap!!  Only 12 l of fuel...REALLY!?  And now these stupid indicators, come on, could they not foresee that they won't last a day??

Still a fun toy though...

I bought some cheapy LED ones from Startline for my 640 yesterday.

They don't look like they're gonna hold up for long but I'll use them till the go and then get some of those R 450 ones.

Funny, I thought I'd have problems with them blinking super fast but they work fine without any added relays etc???

Well between the Greenies and the Accountants the Engineers don't stand much of a chance...
Have a look at the 450RR to understand what can be done if the other two parties don't have much of a say...

Excellent point and this is not only related to KTM, the bean counters don't understand what we need in the real world

Got some of those indicators on the bike I bought and can't get it through roadworthy. Darn
Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies

Ha ha, I've roadworthied 2 bikes from the back of my Land Rover.  Never even started them.  What's the reason for them not liking the flush-mounts?
