This is an old thread, but my question fits here.

I have a 2011 FE570S and it has a two-element incandescent tail light bulb. I note that the 2012 model has an LED instead. Can I swap in a compatible LED without boogering up the way the rear turn indicators work? The writing on the bulb base says,
P21/5W
9P 28
37R E6 215
I have no idea what any of that means...

KTM has a LED tail light and also a tail light with turn indicators both are plug and play fits in with no problems. Don't know if tail light with turn indicators are DOT approved ? It's no bigger then just the tail light one.

My tail light and turn indicators work fine and don't need to be replaced. I'd just like to reduce current draw on startup and have a tail/brake bulb that is vibration proof.

Can I just swap in an 1157 compatible LED bulb without creating a hyperflash problem with the rear turn indicators???

These are street legal and are suitable replacements for both 1157 and P21/5W bulbs:

Amazon.com: 1157 P21 LED Philips Replacement Bulb: Automotive

Will it cause hyperflash of the rear turn indicators???

I don't see how, as it's a different circuit than the indicators.

I too had issues with the 1157 taillight burning out often.

Switched to a similar 1157 drop-in led tail/brake light bulb from the auto parts store and have never had It fail.
Around 12,000 miles of use.

It isn't that bright though...
Thanks from Ruger
