What Did You Do To Your KTM Today?

I actually used the dash outlet for power and then I have it switched with the high beam relay. (Light only draws 2.5 amps on that completely unused 15A cct.) I have the Rigid Industries SRQ-2 driving light, but it's too bright for oncoming traffic to just leave on. Thus having it switched with the high beam. Works great. FAR better than most and fit the spot I installed it beautifully.

LED AND HIGH BEAM


Stock light and high beam on with PIAA white lamp upgrade.

I have a set of Dually spots. They are mounted low on the crash bars. I use yellow filters for daytime riding, just to be seen. And at night it is like riding in daylight. I have an aux fuse block and then relay from there. I have a small weather proof push button style switch instead of the Rigid one. Hole is much smaller.

New Pegs

Installed some new pegs. The KTM Rally Pegs. I like them so far.





Nice increase over stock without being ridiculous.

Installed a Black Dog CycleWorks side stand relocator and second fan.

The relocator was easy-peasy didn't even need to take off the bashplate, just put the bike in gear and lean it against the wall.

The fan was a pain, mainly to get the tanks off, tilt the radiator and get the fan plug, other than that not big deal. Should behave better now in traffic.

I had similar experience with those mods. When I did my side stand I also ditched the switch, and zip-tied the little widget up front. For the radiator I think the lower temperature fan switch made a big difference. I also made the switch to engine ice from the yellow stuff.

I've spent the afternoon screwing around with that GPS mount. I'm of course making mods to it.
Tomorrow I'll go find some more hardware and maybe finish. I have to figure out a mount adapter for my Wahoo iPhone case.

I have been looking to buy a gps for a while but can't really afford one at the moment. So I have been looking to a waterproof case for my mobile I found one on ebay that looked upto the job, its called Tough waterproof Case. There are loads of different mount options but I decided to go with the 3m small adhesive one. I'm going to stick it to the HDB top clamp. For power I have an aux power socket in the tank storage.

I do the same with a LifeProof case for the iPhone, a LifeProof bar mount for the case, and an app called MotionX GPS (not the "Drive" version, which is for roads). After using this setup, I would never go back to a dedicated GPS unit.

I'll have a look at that app, I've been using Navfree so far but not really tested it fully yet.

That's the app I use. Works great on phone and iPad. I use it on the bike and in my Jeep.

I adjusted the steering stops, then farted around with the GPS mount I got that is actually for a 950 but will, when I'm done fit a 990.

I'm still working out how to mount the case/phone to the bar. But, I've got some ideas.

The mount:


Notice anything? Yeah kinda offset.

Hmm, this might just be crazy enough to work!



A hacksaw, file, some sanding, drill and tap.


I've got a bit more work to do. Some spacers, and hardware sourcing. Then I can begin on the case mount.
Oh, and I'll need to paint that chunk of aluminum above. Maybe poke a lightening hole or two. You know to let the lightening through.
