Thanks for the advice. Hole is now plugged.

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.



Close up of the wires:


And they work!
my led electrosport signals filled up with mud - entered in around wires as rubber grommet is not a tight fit
just a heads up - they were on a dirt bike and the wires ran up hill from the light to fender.
I think the muddy water followed down the wires and entered the lights
as they don't come apart it is not possible to clean them out.
I thought about siliconing the wire entry point instead of the rubber grommet but
this may cause the wires to pull away from the circuit board when the light gets the "crash advantage" test.
maybe some Silicone Dielectric grease would be better as it would still let the wire pull in when the light flexes
anybody else figure a way to prevent the mud from getting in these lights ?

Valve Check

10k valve check!



Craig at CJ Designs provides extraordinary product support.

When I break parts on my bike he just smiles and sends replacements.



CJ sent me his Valve Check Kit with Alternator Plug and a set of Hot Cams. Get them from him and you'll be happy. The Hot Cams are nicely labeled on them and come in smaller increments than the KTM or HD shims.

Using the HOW and a few lifeline calls, I was able to follow the valve adjustment instructions.

Tomorrow I button everything back up and go ride!

Laid down 750 miles in just under 16 hours (actual riding time). Not as much riding in the dirt as I planning, but... WOW, what a blast this bike is to ride for extended saddle time!
