Undertail/vibration with incandescent bulbs?

Do these last? My bike came with an unmodified undertail with an LED brake/tail strip mounted on L-brackets for the plate. I have some regular tailights but wonder if the vibration from being solid mounted to the body may shorten their life.

Sorry, when I said unmodified I meant it's a chinese undertail with no lights mounted. It's not OEM.

Regular bulbs should be OK.
