Where did you run the fuel line from the right side petcock? I think the instructions say (I didn't get them with my tank) to run the line around the front of the cylinder, right above the header pipe, to the carb, via the T piece.

I ran mine around the rear, double insulated from heat, between the carb (over the inlet boot) and the cylinder and it works well.

Burned myself a couple of times, and couple of pairs of gloves. Try touching the header after its been running...

Dents come with riding hard

Or did you decide against rotor guards?
Show me a picture of a rotor that needed protection

I would get those rear blinkers replaced with flush mounted ones and save the rear ones as replacements for the fronts.

Thanks Dirtdiver. Me and my riding buddies have had the same positive experience from our X's. I now have the Punkin' and we will be going out to Muenster, TX next weekend to ride for the weekend. Mostly single track tight stuff. Check out some of the Last man Standing footage from this place.

Ditto that. I replaced the front with smaller LED units as well. Never had an issue with the rears except when riding on National Forest road and was told by park ranger they were too small. I ride them around town, commuting to work etc, and police have not said a word.

Went into local KTM dealer today (Apex Sports) to see if they could order it for me so I can save on shipping. They couldn't find this part anywhere and couldn't even figure it out for me. Is this something only sold through ktm-parts? Seemed kinda odd to me..

Yeah I ran into the same thing when I ordered my setup locally, if I remember right the 78014040044 part number listed on KTM-Parts.com is for the package that KTM-Parts put together and not in the official KTM parts list. KTM sells the parts seperatly and not as a bundle like KTM-Parts does.

Have your dealer order parts 78014040000 and 78008016000.

They could only find the 6000 part number I think. The other one didn't even come up. I think it was just the LED light they found and that alone was 95 bucks. haha. Who knows.

I had the Euro light (comes stock here...) and prefer the one sold by PW Garfield, as it's just as small but has a license plate light built in, which is a legal requirement in many countries:







It's about the same price if not cheaper than the KTM kit, too.

Enduro Engineering has light kits built up from the OEM parts all bundled up and ready to go. Give them a call.
