"Euro" H.L./Blink/Horn Switch


Looking to streamline and condense the clutter on handlebars on my 640A and 400RXC. I saw a much smaller and compact H.L./Blink/Horn switch and kill button/ E.start combo on a 625 supermoto, I think it was. I can’t find a parts fische for any of the 640/625s. Anyone Know of what I speak of?
One reason is on the 640, the stock switch is so bulky that it prohibits using a shorty clutch lever because there’s abit of difference in the bend and won’t clear the switch housing and allow full disengagement. Also needing the room to add the bar mounted controls for trip master and possibly electric roll chart (planning on riding the trans am trail then hang a left towards Baja) Plus it just looks better.
As for the 400, almost exclusively a dirt bike and only need Hi/Low beam and blink control, no horn and no e.start just need a kill button.
Thanks in Advance guys......,AndyB

"KTM parts" search on Google will return several online parts dealerships that have parts fiche online for your convenience.

I don't know the alternative handlebar assemblies, but I do have a shorty clutch lever on my 03 with stock handlebar assemblies... It's easy, buy nothing. Either have your brother in-law drop the bike on it's port side at a stop light (in his defence it was his first stop on the bike, downhill, and he has never been on such a tall bike ) or cut the stock lever off at the pre groved breakpoint. And then smooth it down.

DONE!

The tripmaster switch should fit next to the stocker; doesn't the tripmaster switch also advance the roll chart? Maybe not; ask the others what they did to mount a roadbook switch.

Thanks Meat...

Thanks Meat, But...., i did cut a stock lever down but like/want the ball end on 'cause it helps keep my fingers from scooching off And just that extra leverage for my 2 finger style. gonna have a guy heliarc the ball on, just anin't done yet. ...don't know how you could fit any thing else on bar, with the switch and clutch perch, where's the room? it'd have to go on the other side of perch and would think that'd be abit of a stretch. maybe not. ....As far as the tripmaster switch, not real sure about it. i've read about them but haven't really seen one.i know it's an option but i don't even really know where to get one???...the few searches for online parts fisches has turned up nothing for the 640A or 625SMX or Ralleys, will try again. Thanks again,
AndyB

The index is a huge mess right now! I gotta get busy cleaning house...

Anyways, here try this one: http://www.cyclehuttktm.com/

at the top of the page is OEM Parts, click there

then choose the year and enter a model in the search criteria and it will give you some results that you can choose the bike you want

that site will also have the tripmaster switch, 950/LC4 link on the left:

Leverage

For extra grip on a shorty lever, after cutting ball off and smoothing, put a neoprene gear shifter sock/grip (available at any mountain bike store) on it. they are sold in pairs and various colors to help riders keep a secure finger on the gear levrs in rain and muddy snot.

A bit of hair spray, get the sucker on, wait and day and away you go. Have one mine, cost next to nothing and allows a easy and secure 2 finger grip on a short lever.
