690 Duke Tripmaster Switch

Yesterday I went to Hauthaler, the KTM Dealer in Salzburg (Austria), and found a nice tripmaster switch with 2 push buttons for the 690 Duke.





I asked them to install it on my 2011 690 Enduro R, but when they tried, the connector doesn't match. They are the same color, and i think also the same size and also 4 pin. But the connector on the bike and on the switch are both male.

Does anyone know if it's only a matter of finding a female connector for one of the sides, and if it would work that way?

And one more doubt... anyone knows the name of that kind of connectors?

Mine does the same thing! Let me know when you find the issue. I figured it was just how it is. I have already had to fill the rad overflow tank as it ran dry after 500 km from new? Normal?

Do you know what the KTM part number for the switch is? If so, can you post it? If you have detailed pictures of the connector I might be able to help with a source for the alternative connector gender

Yes, 54814073000 is the right one.

But it is useless for rally riding, you cannot adjust it while riding.

Are there any problems with wolfman bags fitting onto touratwat racks? Or do you need to weld loops onto the racks?

It is a remote mode switch for the speedo unit. It allows for incrementing + and - on trip 2. Used mostly on Enduro or other events that run a rollchart. When I installed mine I noticed it also activated a stopwatch function as well. That is on my 2009 with the small digital instrument panel. Not sure if anything exra works on the big panel with tach.

The tripmaster switch came to life back when they were selling the 950 and the 640 adventure. The speedometer they came equipped with had an option for a thumb switch that had 3 buttons on it. 1 button for mode, and 2 buttons for incrementing and decrementing one of the trip odometers.

We figured it was probably one of the safety switches, either kickstand or clutch. We started at the clutch safety switch and after pulling it apart and cleaning it the bike started right up. Problem solved..maybe not. The bike did this again during the ride and we employed the same fix with good enough results to finish the ride. When my friend got home he had another similiar incident so his mechanic cut the safety switch and jumpered it to remove it from the system and as we know from other posts, this misguided shortcut caused other problems. On the advice of the inmates here, the old switch was spliced back in and the bike is running fine. My friend is certain that Murphy's Law is going to strike again and leave him stranded out in the pickertoolies. With my keen sense of the obvious, I suggested a replacement of the old clutch safety switch with a new one, but I would like to solicit advice from the experience of everyone here if this would be the right fix? The previous owner has told him that the kickstand safety had been removed and replaced with the KTM kit. Is there something else that he should be looking at here also? Thanks for the help.
When the bike doesn't start, do you hear the fuel pump prime sound when turning the key switch to on before pressing the start button? If not, the bike will not start and you likely have fuel pump issues. Mine would always eventually start after waiting an unspecified time period. I eventually fixed the problem (as others have) by replacing the fuel pump. Read: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=641042

All the clutch safety switch does is to prevent you from starting the bike in gear if the clutch is out. It shouldn't cause the bike to stop running and as long as the clutch lever is pulled in it will start in gear.

The side stand switch will keep the bike from starting and it is worth installing the eliminator.

Otherwise your friend might be having issues with the leads on the coil or is having fuel pump issues.

steering locks

So it looks like on my 2013 that the stops could be closed in a bit to offer more movement lock to lock? Any negative to doing this?

Thanks

Nope. Close it up. Mind the radiator or any other interference.

I took the jam nuts out and bottomed the stop bolts to go in as far as I could. Only thing that touches is my turn signal on the Safari tank.
