I think that your charging system is on its way out. Either regulator or generator. Take to an auto-electrician or dealer that knows something about the electrical system.

Put a good battery in the bike and check the charging. you should see 13v to 14.6v. A dead battery can throw a bike charging system out of wack sometimes. If the charging is below the above numbers with a healthy battery then its time to determine if your stator is going or if your voltage regulator is going. To do this you will need to measure the AC voltage from the stator leads while the bike is running. I think you can also measure the resistance of the stator windings with the bike off to see if you have a shorted winding.

Leak from the Neutral switch

Hello All.

My SE recently started leaking from the "Neutral" switch in the bottom of the left side on the case. Right below the counter shaft sprocket.
About a teaspoon a day - when sitting.

So I removed the black electrical part from the outside, and cleaned the surfaces. The O-ring inside appeared to be OK an din the right spot.
I also cleaned out the inside of the area.
There are two silver "nubs" that obviously rotate and open / close the connection to the electrical switch.

But there is a consistent weeping of oil, and the O-ring does not seem to stop it.

What's going on?
Is there supposed to be a bit of oil in there?
Is the O-ring supposed to keep the oil in, or is it there to keep water out?

I cleaned everything, and put it all back together, and the darn thing is still leaking.
(I've read other threads on this, and replacing the O-ring should have fixed the problem...)

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.
Q~

UPDATE:
Well I've done a lot more research, and apparently I need to buy new O-rings.
I would have thought that cleaning and reinstalling the old ones would have been sufficient.
I'll order the parts tomorrow when my local shop opens.

Q~

Not so much SE related but I installed some Dual Star heated grips on the SE. I used the accessory leads which maybe the problem. Anyway the grips work but the heat output is dismal even on high and even on the throttle side where its insulated from the bars by the throttle tube.

Every other heated grip I've had became uncomfortable on high after a few minutes. I bought the dual stars based on glowing reviews here in Advrider.

Is it the grounding or what?

I guess you have to connect it directly to the battery for a test. However, I think the acc cabling is really thin, so I'm not surprised.

As did I, they totally suck. I wired mine straight back to the battery, they worked brilliantly for about 2 weeks last winter. Troubleshooting results show good fuse, all wiring still ziptied to the frame and in tact, rocker switch still functioning.

I only purchased them because I'm not fond of bulky gloves.

The heat failed so I bought THESE and got used to the size.

SE steering dampener

Is there one in the powerparts catalogue?
Does it fit on the stock triple tree?
Is there any other option (if the answer on the above is negative) that does not require a change of said triples?

Otherwise, what are my options???

many thanks in advance

This is the only one that seems to exist (and I'd love to be proven wrong). I put one on the SE about six months ago.

I am not aware of a bolt on without having to replace the triple.

With another first for Ralle-Moto we have raised the bar (well we didnt actually raise the bar at all!!) with design and innovation in our new LC8 steering damper, after hours of development we now have a great steering damper concept for the KTM LC8 990/950 ADV - SE - SM - SMT to comply with a very specific design brief to fit onto the standard triple clamp.... Yes that's right no need for a new top triple clamp!


Y'all are welcome. I'll be here all week...

They are not sure if it will fit an SE with a Safari Tank. I will be finding out early Nov when I drop in there to get them to fit the Dampner with the Safari Tank on.
