Just a word of warning, make sure the number plate doesn't touch the tail light otherwise the vibrations will crack it (the lens).

I also replaced my rear flickers with an set of Yamaha LED's as the stock ones are made of butter and will break sooner or later.
Present bikes: BETA 300RR, KTM 690, Yamaha WR250F

If you're dumb you gotta be tough !!!

The KTM LED indicators are also very nice and strong.

Yeah I looked at them yesterday on the Powerparts booklet ;)  Clever giving you that bag of goodies to page through!  :eek7:
Wonder how much they go for? I suppose it's a good idea to go visit KTM CT and see if they have changed in the last 2-3 years.  Here's to hoping....

Yeah not cheap I paid about R1400 but I can vouch for their toughness.
I had a off and the bike landed on the one rear indicator, It unclipped and was full of mud but I just stripped, cleaned and reassembled it and its as good as new.
