Added HDB top clamp, handguards, and mirrors. This is a great upgrade to the flimsy stock handguards. Quality is top notch!

I ordered the 90x38/40 top clamp which match to stock KTM handlebar bolt pattern. I didn't realize the ROX Raisers are wider than the stock clamps. Ended up using the HDB top clamp to clamp the ROX, and the ROX to clamp the handlebars.













To fit the HDB top clamp on top of the ROX, I would have to get a 106x38/40 HDB bolt pattern.

With the large footpeg extensions I always found the little stock tip too hard to find. I used to have one from Adventurer's Workshop but it was just bent metal like the original and was also bent out of shape. Don't think this one is going to deform too easily!

hum no, you can fit the 90-38/40 as well. you just need to take 1-2 mm off the width the lower clamps, which would bring the ROX inwards and bam... you're in business. Takes 10 min with a dremel. Looks good and you get your HDB clamp on top.

This is a great kit. It includes everything you will need.
I just pulled the headlight to get to mine. Easier to me than pulling the entire cheek.

Good info. glad that I read this before I bought a new top plate.

It may just be the way I am looking at this, but it would appear that the HDB part may be keeping you from rotating those Rox Risers any further forward, is that the case?

When I installed my Rox Risers I went with this brand because I wanted to keep the bar mount in vertical alignment with the stock mount position (in terms of the reach), rather than having the bars pulled back and closer to me. To do so, I then adjusted the risers slightly forward. This may not be possible with that top clamp part. Interesting.

This is very true. The HDB Top Clamp is preventing the Rox from tilting forward. There is a slight tilt but not as much as to bring the bars vertically up.

One thing I found about the Rox is that no matter how tight I torque to clamps, when I ride off road, they always tilt back and eventually line up with the original angle of the bottom clamps. I'm probably going to get one of these offset raisers because I prefer my bars farther away from me (closer to the instrument panel).

The front fender has yet to hit to lower tree. However, I'm not sure I ever had it bottom out.

Here are some more photos of the HDB guards and mirrors:

ElectroSport Turn Signals

I got ElectroSport Turn Signals from Black Dog Cycle Works.



They are really compact and look to be very durable.

When I first installed these, they didn't work. It turned out (A) I didn't connect the resistors that were came with the package, and (B) I wired the KTM brown wire (-) to the ElectroSport yellow wire (+) and the KTM black wire (+) to the ElectroSport black wire (-).

After confirming with ElectroSport that the resistors must be connected, and that their yellow is (+) and their black is (-), and confirming that KTM black is (+) and brown is (-) I re-wired all four of the turn signals.

From left to right:
KTM original male connector with brown and black wires.
ElectroSport resistor (the part covers with the black sleeve).
ElectroSport turn signal with yellow and black wires.

And they work!

GPS and Phone Brace

I have my Garmin Zumo and phone mounted with RAM ball mounts on the front dash above the instrument cluster. Because the plastic dash does not have any support under it, both the GPS and phone vibrate when riding. The vibration is bad enough to make it hard to read direction on the GPS or record movies with the phone.



To mitigate the vibrations, I fabricated two small metal braces and connected them to the front instrument cluster sub-frame. Each brace connects to one of the screws that connect the RAM ball mounts to the dash.





The braces significantly reduce the vibrations. They did not eliminate them completely, but it's much better now. I can read directions on the GPS and film movies with the phone. The movies are not completely vibration free, but much better than it was without the braces.

I've used the Electrosport units on several bikes, they are durable.

Sicass Racing sells set of the same thing but with KTM connectors on them too, bit pricier for that benefit.

Clear Lens LED - KTM



An LED flasher module doesn't need the resistors, but again more expensive than a few resistors and more mod work too.

Storage Tube on the BDCW Skid Plate

Drilled two holes in the BDCW skid plate and attached plastic tool tube with two screws.







Now I just need to figure out what to put in it.

Nice! I never thought about mounting one there. I got several of those tubes. You might want to do something about the vent/drain hole on the tube. It is pointing up now and may allow bad stuff into the tube.

Edit- Also some alcohol or brake cleaner will take off all that yellow paint. ;)

I don't remember what kind of solvent I used, but that yellow lettering wiped off easily, leaving no trace.
