Didnt see any notation in the U.S. S M for heated grips. Thought at least spare wires would be on the wiring diagram but not shown. See a plug under the tank and the wiring diagram references a "Junction Box" but all wires there are terminated to ground.

There is a plug that's taped off and tucked up under the front left corner of the gas tank.
That's the DLC. You can connect the HDS pocket tester to the port and read out diagnostic codes. Chapter 4 in the Service Manual describes the procedure (37 pages).

The DLC port is shown at the bottom of the wiring diagram.

ramz, based on everything I see in your posts about technical issues...including the current post running on the KTM Freeride...apparently you're the only one reading the manuals. Thank you, sir.

Mine (skidplate) is scheduled to be delivered to the house by the end of the day on the 29th. The Rev/Hours meter by Tuesday of next week. Cool. ;-)

yeah ordered mine, not sure when it'll get here, it's usually three or four days longer than stated. Mine stock plate is now broke in two with a piece having fallen off on the trail. I think I may be pushing this bike a bit harder than it should be pushed, deep water crossings, jagged rocky hill climbs, sphincter puckering off camber descents, buried in deep deep mud, over working the suspension on washboard rock strewn trails. It's holding up real well. This is my first enduro, so I'm probably doing things that I shouldn;t be doing with it because I don't know better, the only damage so far has been aftermarket aluminum bars from a 40km/hr crash, and a lot of scratches and the cheapo plastic skid plate.

Here's the ATV high rise bars I put on, they look kinda foolish, sorta like mini apes, but it allows me to be stood up on the bike without being all hunched over, I'm 6'2" so this is a big relief. need to sort out the cross braceas the moose hand guard clamps clamp on right in the same place.

I've been punishing mine similarly and it loves every second of it.


My stock bash plate is also wasted. I think moose is coming out with one soon

Hello all this is my first post. I've been following this thread since it started and finally after much debate picked a bike up Tuesday. Only two dealerships had the bike and one doesn't want to talk to you unless you play there finance games. With economy the way it has been you would think they would tear your arm off for a cash sale lol. But back to the bike this is my first DS having only owned several gsxr's and a gen 1 vmax. I was looking for something different. I have had more fun on this little bike the last 2 days than I have on 2 wheels in a long time. I did make one mistake, I removed the spark arrestor and rode down the the road. When I got back half of the right turn signal was melted so keep this in mind if you remove it. Anyways thanks for all the info in this thread and I hope to possibly add my review of the bike once I get some more time on it.

Thanks. I just ordered mine. Did you order the Honda one or the aftermarket one?

Oil drain plug

I took off the plastic skid plate in preparation to install the Ricochet skid plate when it arrives, and noticed the crazy oil drain plug. Has anyone replaced it with a regular plug? What size is the star? I guess it's back to Harbor Freight for another specialty tool.

Great bike! Grabbed it last night and have 50 miles so far. Will post a ride report once I get it dirty and grab more pics.

Just ordered a CRFL last Saturday, no word yet on when it's mine. Seems like longer than a week. Away from dirt for a while, looking forward to it again.
