Hey thanks!

The 19/17 wheels and street tires make it beautiful to ride in the city and on the highway.

Pipes sound good to.

'14 1190 Adventure R Electric Accessories

  • Installed KTM heated grips
  • Installed Automotive relay to allow accessories to be powered up only when ignition is on
  • Replaced cheesy cigarette lighter with spring loaded cap Powerlet socket - also powered only when ignition is on
  • Installed and wired GPS using KTM mount kit

You probably want to remove this 10A fuse (the one that's missing) before starting in with your accessory circuit wiring.


The Powerlet socket requires 11/16" hole but the existing cigarette lighter hole was about an inch. You'll need to provide something like a body washer on both sides of the hole as I've done here then drill out the washers to the 11/16" dimension. Note the automotive relay mounted on the bottom of the housing extending forward. The relay fits neatly between the headlight housing and the ignition/instrumentation panel cover.


Here you can see the wires with spade connectors coming through the existing hole into the headlight housing


Here you can see the accessory socket housing removed from the bike before reassembly


The automotive relay coil is energized by the 1A ACC2 plugs provided. This circuit has some slightly unexpected behavior in that it does not immediately de-energize to 0VDC when the ignition is switched off. Instead, it drops to about 7.6 VDC for 60 seconds before de-energizing completely to 0VDC. The relay drops immediately however since the applied voltage isn't enough to keep it energized. I haven't yet run the setup but will report any problems if they occur. The 10A ACC1 plugs provide the relay switched power.

Learning curve for posting photos using Dropbox

Sorry, I struggled a bit to get the photos to show up. It's my first attempt and I'm using Dropbox for photo hosting. It needs a bit more effort than some other photo hosting sites.

Anyway, the photos are showing up for me now so hopefully you can see them too.

How do you like the Mefo rear?

I'm undecided between a Heideanau K60, the Mefo, or a a Mitas E-07 for my next rear.

MY OPINION (from my experience)
The HEIDEANAU will last a long time. It wears like iron but feels hard off-road. For long trips I will use the Heideanau. I call this a 50% street/50% dirt tire.

The MEFO rides well on and off road. It wears faster but I prefer the Mefo for more dirt oriented riding. I call this a 40% street/60% dirt tire

My favorite rear off-road tire is the D908rr but I can't afford to put one on every 2000 miles.

Around $200. Much cheaper then a paint job.
