It is indeed a '17, I'll take some pictures tomorrow and throw them up for you!

I ordered the items (there were a bunch of others in the order) from a seller (ERMASPEED) on aliexpress on the 28th of August and they arrived on the 15th of September, so that's a total of 18 days, which is pretty crazy considering what I paid for the items, the fact that I paid no shipping and how long I'm accustomed to aliexpress orders taking to arrive.

DHGate and Amazon (non-prime) both have a similar tidy as AliExpress. Dunno if there is a price difference or if shipping times are better or worse though.

Hey folks, sorry for the delayed response, I had a bit of an insane day yesterday, but as promised, here are the pictures of the tail-tidy installed on the bike! (you'll have to excuse the filthy bike and the location, I had to snap some pics in a parking garage)

You may also notice that I replaced the signals/indicators as I felt the OEM ones were a little too bulky, these LED ones are brighter and much more sleek in my opinion (yes, I do know that they need to be properly ligned up).

The whole setup ends up being a whole lot cleaner and lighter than the stock tail.

Let me know what you all think!

Looking into some new signals as well since the OEM ones for North America a huge! here what i got so far! Still need to zip tie wires down but overall i like it and you cant beat the price!

Hey @DuffMan757, mind if I ask how you wired up the license plate LED ? I've got mine wired up, but it feels a little sketchy, I was wondering what others have done, especially seeing as I have no idea how or where to source the OEM connectors ...

@KreamTM I just cut and reused the OEM License Plate Light Connector ..soldered the wires together since the ERMASPEED wires were really thin and electrical tape the wires back together. Think i'm gonna try and get some OEM LED Front & Rear Turn Signals that come on the India 390s anyone have the part number by chance? Also did you have to use a relay or anything when you changed over to LED Signals to make them blink like OEM?

And installed. I'd have uploaded more pics, but I need to go to work

@DuffMan757 I haven't fixed the blink rate yet, I've heard that KTM includes resistors in their connectors, so once I've soldered those in I'll give it a test and see what the blinking rate is like, otherwise I will have to get a relay I think. Thus far I've only soldered the license plate light connector in and I'm using the bullet connectors that the turn signals came with, but they're not the most secure, so I'm aiming to get those soldered in asap. I'll keep you posted on whether or not that sorts out the blinker frequency!
