And how to mount it. I ended up having to move mine to the opposite side of the bike.



Uller said.... : I like it better there. Less wire criss crossing the bike....Quote]

So, do I also need their adapter plate....or where do I attach it on port side of bike?????


Thanks for the replies, guys v
I mounted mine like Uller. I order my wiring kit from Eastern Beaver. He has some nice wiring kits.

They do however have other variations like the <'07 KTM, or the universal mask, or you could even install the Squadron in the HDB fairing: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=860034

That is the route that I went, but honestly after seeing some higher end LED's, they throw nearly the same distance while having better flood, no warm up time, more compact, similar power draw, stock(ish) appearance, and a dimmer can be mounted to give a "low" setting (aim will still be the same, just less intense output... again, "almost legal")

If I had it to do over again, I would go with this: http://www.bajadesigns.com/ProductDe...mNumber=497061 with a dimmer
Thank you all very much!

I think I am going with this BD Squadron with the 66-0088 dimmer box.

Thank you J for all the help!

Take care, Eric.

Definitely post up how the install goes. I'd be interested in hearing if the kit is actually plug and play.

I have the Trailtech HID setup which is truly plug and play. I have had it for at least two years and no failures yet. If I were buying now, I would go LED no doubt! The squadron with the dimmer looks best.

Run a 13 and you may as well buy a spare swingarm too. Some are running 14's but I wouldnt go that small either

I have a 14 up front and love it. It really helps in the dirt being 1st is sooo tall I don't fan the clutch nearly as much. I can also cruise 75mph no worries.

With the 14, for some reason the front end is always in the air

I bought mine a couple of years ago, here's what the manufacturer recommended:

I plan on installing a 14 as well, after I get past the break in period. I wouldn't trust myself with lower gearing right now. This thing just begs you to romp on it. Very trying on my part to keep calm as the hooligan in me tries to seep out!

I'm starting to think I should just get a good air compressor to use air tools....Then I move again and remember why I don't.

I know it is easier and less expensive to replace the countershaft sprocket than the rear....but I would change the rear for sure before going lower than 14 up front....

I always go with Ironman rear sprockets....worth a few $$$ extra:

And I stick w/ KTM for front sprockets because of the "shoulder" on the backside of KTM units....which is essential for proper pressure on o-ring/seals on countershaft....

Haha.. i was looking at this thinking.. that looks familiar.. I did this to mine so I could remove the air box without taking off the tanks. It works *kindof* but its still faster just to remove the tanks.
