that's sweet!
I was thinking of getting rid of the stock grip switch for the throller you have... how is the wiring done?

good job by the way. Keep some room for the HID behind the light... it's packed... I don't dare opening mine again

I still run my grips off of the KTM hotgrips wiring - works well, it all boils down to a couple of spade connectors that plug into ACC2 - the only key is keeping your wires positioned such that they are "chafe free" from lock to lock.

the heat-troller on the other hand is an entirely different animal. Because of the potential amps involved with my two 12 volt powerlets; I ran direct wires up from the battery for them and went from there.

Thanks Geek! I'll try to give it a shot. I have the HDB setup as well.
I'm not sure how the wiring from the stock wire will hook up to the throller.

The dual heat troller itself comes with a "recommended maximum of 15 amps" and includes an inline 15amp fuse.

not sure.. but I think that might be more than ACC1 recommends.

I think so too. I have them to a separate fuse box directly to the battery right now. But that stock Ktm switch either does nothing or burns my hands... Gotta find a better way

I'm sure you mention it someone in one of your post but is that the Black Dog plate?

Euro-spec bike; turn the power on from the ignition, and low beam is on. Low/high/overtake signaling controlled from left handlebar switch/trigger. Low beam is always on, as you suggested earlier.

Is there a gasket on the light switch? Looks like there is not, and those switches have a habit of rotting from the inside. A rubber sleeve coated one would be better. Seems the designers think that it never rains or the bike is not ridden during rain. Where did you get the switch?

thanks for the pic Geek



It looks as though all the wires are run up to the rh control already. Maybe all a cheap canadian would need is a waterproof switch and a little soldering?

ps. my Black is getting blacker too.

There is not a gasket - there is not on the stock KTM switches either.

I got the switch from KTM twins.

My package arrived direct from China.

Quarter shown for size reference.



Now I just have to figure out how to wire it in

Anybody know the wire colors in the euro switch assembly?

Which of these wires does what?

I shoulda bought a "plug'n'play" setup from one of our KTM toy-sources.

You're wiring them direct to the switch assembly? Why not wire them through the molex plug for the headlight assembly?
