Or check the lamp in the warning indicator is fully seated and working.

Frostyuk - Can you provide specific info on the KTM flasher bracket? Got any pics of how you used it? Thanks.

Apparently, no NAPA's in Texas have the thermal fan switch mentioned in this thread in stock. And, I was told the manufacturer is backordered. Are there any good alternatives?

I'm not frosty, but here's how I used mine after removing the turn signals using HDB LED signals instead, and a few other photos of the freshly repaired Mighty Husaberg and me doing our thing getting LOST.
Nice have her back running strong.

Here's where I put my can am filter. It's got easy access and maintains the QD in the original spot.

Here's the EE guard. You do have to grind the bar some to get the 15t on but it will fit.

its part no 78014033000 flasher bracket exc 08, i've only just got it but it mounts to the front of the top triple clamp in the same holes as the the little wiring bracket. i'll be doing something similar to lost but with different lights :)

thanks
It looks like you found a bunch of Photo's and answers...I have a 3L w/ tool box. Let me know if you did not get all of your questions answered.

I know some of you have added an inline filter - so this question is for you... Whereabouts did you end up installing it? Closer to the tank or closer to the injector end? How tight is space after installing? Any helpful tips or images?
I ended up installing mine on the pump side of the connector. Not ideal as the filter is not between the connector and injector. However, (as someone already mentioned) there is not a lot of room on the injector side of the connector and I was worried about kinking the line.





Hope that helps.

IMG_1842

However Paul has abandoned the version that Lukas showed us in favour of a more generic solution that he can use for his rally lite fairing and the more common KTM headlight/mask ( i wont steal LukasM thunder about the rally lite fairing ;) )

Anyway whilst discussing with Paul i realised that the kit Paul had made up wouldnt work with most of the bergs as it was based on moving the locating pins forward for the headlight/mask to mount on, this is for the later 570s which have the ktm mask/light combination that doesnt use a fender brace. For the fender brace version the headlight doesnt use the fender locator pins but a tab on the fender brace which also acts as the point for the headlight adjuster.

Now it may be that the only thing i need to do is to tilt the top of the mask forward but i think i will need to move the whole fender brace forward as well to get the space i want. Anyway i think this can be done with a "simple" plate that bolts to the top of the triple clamp (where the brace fits currently) rather than under the triple clamp and fancy bending, and provide some holes to mount the fender brace further forward (plus some locator pegs and a new hole in the fender for the front of the brace (but thats another story). Paul is kindly donating to me some bits from the abandoned kit he was making, to help me start on this and a local friend Gabe from Zen Overland who preps RTW bikes has said he can help me out with the metalwork. The question is is anyone else interested in a kit if i can get something made up? we're looking at a couple of months plus by the time the bits get to me from Paul and Gabe and i work something out. If you are can you pm me rather than filling up the thread and then Gabe can work out a rough cost based on numbers, i cant see that many being interested but i thought i'd ask

Cheers.
Would one of the KTM roadbook carriers work for you?

thanks nice off the wall thinking, looking at it it would be for the ktm headlight/mask combination rather than the older berg but it does re-inforce my thoughts about using the mounting holes on top of hte lower triple

Subframe tank conversion.

Re converting the existing subframe into a fuel tank:
I have the complete process with instructions and photos from Amme who has said I can post it up on this thread. But now I know why he didn't... If anyone knows how to convert a .pdf file into a format that can be put up here, PM me and I'll email you the file.

Recluse - they have you attach a small tube for the clutch delete.
