If it's like a KTM, those wires are for a remote switch, so jumping them together would be like holding the button down.

The beta dealer I took it to didn't know what it was and ended up connecting a couple of wires to it and crossing them and the display lit up and it started cycling through the modes, which i didn't even know it had. The mode it has been on says TOD next to the mileage. What does this mode mean? Does anybody know what that two prong connector is? Also now after doing this, my speedometer is way off and it only shows half the speed I'm actually going. Needless to say, I am not happy about this. My bike is a 2009 525rs. I can put pictures up later tonight if needed. Thank in advance guys.

Go to Betariders.org or Thumpertalk/bike specific / Beta for lots of good technical information. That is one clean Beta, welcome to the club.

American Beta website has free manuals on their website under the "support" tab.

Good answers above as well.

Thanks for all of the answers guys. I am taking it back in to the shop tomorrow, and will relay what I have learned here.

So since my toggle button doesn't work, I'm guessing there is something I could buy and plug in to that outlet to switch modes?

Yes, AmericanBeta.com has the manuals. Chapter 11 of the 2009 RS manual has the schematic. You should be able to find the connector on that schematic and see what it is for.

I have a 2012 520 RS with 3 hours. Love looking at it, just no time to ride. In reality just a little too old to do it justice. In lower AL with extras. No idea of value, but have $10k in it. Perfect and just like new.

Yes, send them an email at info@americanbeta.com. They put mine up. Ilikepowerwheelies, I feel bad about you missing out on my bike. I would ask about that bike above in Alabama. Beta is a great little company. If I had the money I would open in Ct, a small exotic shop.

For what it is worth, I went to a Customer Appreciation Day at a local Bike Shop (Newnan, GA) and they had a new unsold 2011 Beta 520 RS for sale.

I think the price they had on the bike was $8500. Pretty sure they were open to some negotiation though.
