Eek Bash plate vs positive terminal

Has anybody else had the problem with their Touratech bashplate conflicting with the right hand side of bike electrical positive terminal? Mine arcs when I put the bash plate on so have had to insulate it with a plastic cover

Something wrong there mate, dont just insulate the terminal as vibration will wear it away and youll be left with a shorting electrical system that at best cause a hole heap of problems and at worst will catch the bike on fire,

KTM supplies a rubber cover for the positive term.
TT supplies a positive relocation bracket to move the terminal up and out of the way of the plate. Yours should have come with it.

I'm confused.. isn't your positive battery terminal inside your battery box?

990's have a positive terminal external to the battery box. Makes wiring accessories and jumping the bike much easier.

I could have used that last week when the bike died and had no way to jumpstart the bike. Would have solved the 5 mile bike/walk out of the woods..

I imagine there must be a retro-fit on this somewhere. I might want to do that before my Baja trip the end of the month....

There is a writeup on how to add this to a 950 in the HOW.

I see the positive terminal . . . is there an equivalent negative terminal for centralised earthing? (I know any frame point can be used)

yes - I see the positive one, thanks. Am enquiring if there is a negative equivalent, or whether folk just use any convenient frame earth.
