Changing a KTM 690 Enduro R broken rear indicator

Oh snap. I didn't break anything else and if the bike wasn't brand new I would fix it with black tape. The cold weather probably played a part in this. I assume the plastic was rather hard at 36F and that might have made it prone to snapping in half like it did.

Anyway, time to switch the indicator to a new one. The connectors are hidden between the rear fender and the tank so the rear fender assembly must come off. That's a matter of removing three screws from the underside of the fender and two from the top.

After unsnapping the connector ( you need a small flat head screwdriver) the nut needs to come off and then you can just pull out the old indicator. The nut is needed for the new one, because a new nut is not provided with the spare indicator.
