Wiring

I ran a dedicated set of wires up forward. 30a fuse at the battery, then into a fuse block.
From there you have separate fused circuits to each of your accessories, and can run smaller gauge wire to each.

The fuse block I used has a built in relay, so when the bike is off so is the power to the accessories. I used the stock fan circuit to switch the relay. No dead battery because you forgot to turn something off.

Headlight Power

Jason,

The yellow wire connected to the push - pull switch is the main power wire coming forward. I am assuming the small Brown and White wires you are looking at are to the headlight and the White wire is connected to the other side of the switch making it the hot and Brown is ground.

Thanks, I think I have it sorted now. The Lynx fairing has a dedicated run to the battery and extra pigtails for switched and unswitched power. I tied into those for the accessories and hardwired the push/pull switch shut since I'm using the Sicass light kit. I'll do a write-up later for others thinking of combining those kits on the XC-W.

Oil overfill

I guess everyone is out riding.

I idled my bike about a minute with too much oil expecting things to settle in the sight glass. Shouldn't have been a lot too much since I still can't see where I deviated at all from the manual. But anyway, after draining to the right level and about 15 more minutes of riding, still some oil smell from the exhaust and a curl of white smoke when I shut off.

Worry or don't worry?

How much too much....1/2 a liter or 100ml?

Should not be a big deal if you did not rev the hell out of it. Get a measuring cup for changes, easy 1.5liters.

Cool. Had to be closer to the 100ml. Rode about an hour last night (pictures!) and the symptoms seemed to go away so I guess it's all good. Thanks for the answer.

Check your airbox, pretty sure the over flow comes in just below the intake throat there will be oil sitting in the btm of the airbox and spatter.

Oil is'nt bad but it can foul plugs and carbon build up becomes a problem i suppose if its a constant.

Drank The Orange CoolAid

The dealer here in Tucson gave me a deal I couldn't turn down.
Thanks to the info here I went with the XCW.
This scoot will be replacing my 300 and my 690, so it will be doing dual sport as well as
single track rides.
A couple of the wrenches at the dealer who ride 530's have had to replace their counter shafts.
They suggest a cush drive at the rear.
This just confirms my experience with a 525 and a Honda xr 650 r, both of which ate sprockets
and chains when dual sported ( ridden on the street )

Anyone had a cush drive wheel built for your 500 ?
I'm thinking a Rad hub.

Twist it, Max

I think the 640 ADV? I have one, I am not 100% sure of it's source.
Edit: confirmed, my hub on my 500 is from a 640.

The cush hub used on any 620/625/640/660 LC4 will fit, NOT from the 690 however!

Husaberg FS570 also has the same cush hub if you are looking for a supermoto wheel, comes with a nice tubeless rim.

Fuel pump for second tank..

Where are people buying their EFI pumps?
I am considering buying the Acerbis and would love to swap the stock and the 5.3 out really quickly but not if the pump costs an arm and a leg.
Anyone found a less expensive pump source?
Thx.

The problem you face is that you need the whole assembly, not just the pump itself.
Those of us who own the 690 have been dealing with faulty pumps and
KTM's policy of only selling the full assembly at a very high price, same for the 990 bikes.

Pumps are available that fit the 690 and the 500 from California Sport Bike
for a little over $100.
To fit out a tank with the full assembly will run around $300 from Munn
or if you have the KTM Talk Team price you will get it for about $270.
That's close to the price of the tank.
