Sure. Major reorganization of the index coming up, which may rely upon dumping many lesser threads into a separate repository to free up real estate in Posts 1 and 2.

as you know ktm charging power is limited. i wanted to control all things individually so i didn't run the battery flat.

1) aux power relay (for vhf radio and other comms)
2) gps power (charge it up, run it dead, charge it up, run it dead)
3) roadbook power (it has lights that are annoying at night when no map installed or not required)
4) grip heaters

Mouting the GPS to the roadbook holder isn't as treacherous as you might think. Last year when I bit it in the desert the GPS mount roated back and down on the roadbook holder, which then took the brunt of the force and left the GPS with only minor cosmetic damage. I rotated it back up and it was good to go. The roadbook holder had to be removed and straightened later .

The plastic "fairing" on the 640A provides very little crash protection for the things behind it.

yeah, we yanks could learn a thing or two from ya. Like that minimalism y'all got for traveling - can we do without the kitchen sink? Come to think of it, walkabout never could be a national phenomenon here in the US, because we can't carry enough crap on our backs...

Heres mine;
I purchased a KTM road book carrier but found I had to lose some of my steering in order to fit it so it went back and had this made.

6mm steel rod for the main frame with 1.2mm sheet stitched in between the bars to keep it rigid. There was to much flex with out the sheet. Drilled a heap of holes to reduce weight but kept the strength.
Finally folded up a GPS carrier out of some 2mm alloy welded to some 5mm alloy that bolts to the 1.2mm flat sheet.

Howdy Meat

Have got gear on the bike down to bugger all , about 6 kilos per pannier , and the same 6 kg for bag on rack , with a couple of kg's in tankbag.



Thats for a multi-day trip.


Overnighters are just the panniers , no tankbag or bag on the rack (just a thermarest on the rack).



Whoops , sorry , thread jack......................

I see a couple other genius's onboard have discovered the supplied Garmin mount for the 276 fits lovely on the dash. If you have a remote antenna it can be be placed further back and more out of the way and shaded from the sun. Infact, I also have a Tourtech iso mount (not the real jiggly one, the one thats cheaper and has smaller iso mounts) and it vibrates like a s.o.b. mounted off the handlebar mounts. Touch the bar mount and there are very little vibes. Touch the gps and you can get a hand massage. Its enough to make the gps power off when running on the internal battery.
The stock plastic one mounted on a rubber gasket (sliced off a piece of old hand grip) is smooth enough to run on batteries and it also locks in place, without key though. Oddly enough when I mounted the Tourtech on my 300 2T, the bar mounts vibe a bit, but very little vibes get to the gps. I run it on the battery no probs on that bike.
If you are not going to do any desert racing, or need the big route sheet holder and all the tubing that comes with it, you can use the power feed for the route sheet holder for a switched powersupply to hardwire the gps and any other accessories to. There is a spare 2 wire square plug in the connections under the dash. I don't like the idea of a lighter plug sticking out, or popping out in bumpy conditions.
