What is this diode actually for? It is in the cowling, and part number 11 on the parts fiche.

One of the wires going into it broke; I only noticed that my indicators stopped working. I have repaired the wire, but now the indicators don't flash, just a constant light. I thought diodes are just like a one-way directional valve for the current, but wondering if it has something to do with the flashing?...

Pretty Much, they tend to go two ways...ohms meter...they break so no flow, they open so flow both ways.

Looking at the SE C diagram...can only see two diodes....one diode is to do with return for the gear sensor switch and tuther clutch switch...should be nout to do with indicators....check flasher relay.

I received the used Adv tail light yesterday and it is identical to the SE (and SM) piece. Still can't understand why the Adv piece is $40 more (OEM) than the others.

I also don't understand why KTM didn't provide a lens that screws on, rather than making it a whole sub-assembly. There's not much room to snake your hand in to either replace a bulb or remove the unit. Having younger grand-kids is helpful

Walter,
I added a 1/2" thick piece of foam to the existing top foam on the lens to keep it from shaking & jarring on rough trails

Just looking....It also says diode for flasher control.... Sorry. Relay is behind head light mask...on the right.

Yep, sorry there is a diode inline for the live feed to relay........

You don't by any chance have any pics of said tube type bracket do you? Is this available from Safari? I have the flat bracket style and very regularly make contact on what I'd consider minimal hits. I'd like to see if I can solve that problem

The Flat bracket is an updated part from Safari to replace the tube.

Interesting and good to know as there doesnt appear to be much you can do to really increase the clearance. Thanks Hodgo

We ground our bracket back on the centered one and have not had any issues with touching and we have a couple hits where it has bottomed.

Here's my first query.

I have had my 950 SE for a week now. I have ridden it 4 times. The first three times I road it, the clutch was fine. Those 3 rides added up to only 119 miles.

Today, I took it out of the garage, started it up and let it warm up for a bit, but not as long as I did the other times. I then got on it, pulled the clutch in and shifted it in to neutral. It lurched and stalled, as if the clutch wasn't pulled at all.

I started it back up, and it was a bit better but stalled as soon as I started giving it gas. Third time, I was able to get it in to gear and then ride it. The clutch progressively got better as I road. I was taking all back roads. I then got on the highway, and road for about a mile. When I went to exit, there was no clutch again. It was hard to down shift. By the time I got to the end of teh off ramp, the clutch was showing pressure again.

I road it to the office, and parked it. Later in the day, when I was ready to ride home, I let it warm up longer, and it appeared the clutch was better. However, it appears that when I get some air through the engine, and cool things down, the lever loses pressure.

Note that today was cooler than the the other days I rode.

So, I have arrived at the hydrolics. My question is, are there any known issues with the clutch slave on these things? Are they they temperature sensitive?

How much fluid does the clutch system hold?

Do I bleed it just like a brake system?

I see some after market clutch slaves. How do I know if mine is bad, and if any of these are good? I don't see any leaking from the slave, but it is hard to tell because the chain leaves it's share of lube.

Thanks for any input. I am under the gun to figure this out so I can go camping this Friday-Monday.

yes, there are known issues with the clutch slave on these bikes.

You could bleed the clutch and get it back, but it's gonna need a new slave cylinder sonner rather than later. There are a couple of aftermarket options available. Research Oberon and Evoluzione.

Good luck

Thanks - figured as much.

Is there an ADV preferred Clutch Slave? Pros/Cons?

I don't think one is preferred over the other. I have run both on different bikes successfully but I'm thinking the Evo unit may not be available anymore?

Evo no longer exists. Oberon or Siguetech or KTM upgraded the OEM one at some point supposedly.
