Is the X2 light wired different than the stock one? The X2 has only 3 wires in the socket/connector and stock has 4 but the fourth is for the flasher/parking bulb(I think).

Anyone else have same problem?
Sounds like we have the exact same set-up. Mine does the same as yours. I never really thought much about it though since I bought it used that way... Would be nice if it worked w/ the ignition though! I'd be interested in knowing a solution if you find one.

Is the headlight switch installed as well?

Thanks for the input. Yeah I will probably shell out the money for the Renazco later this year but for now this will work.

Looks great!, Better than the EE one imo.

It's possible I got one of the older units. I just bought it after christmas but don't recall them mentioning a different unit. Nothing in the instructions talked about adjusting a relay. Went back over the install and it seems to be correct. The brake light tail light and headlight all work with the ignition off. Turn signals do not, must have ignition on.

I like having the off/low/high beam switch because I like to turn off the headlight when riding trails. Must be something not correct about the regulator. I inquired at TT via email but have not gotten a response yet. Seems like if the regulator has a relay then it must be defective.

Edit: I just looked at TT website and the regulator they show now is different than the one I have. Picture clearly shows an adjustment screw on the unit.

Damn I wish I could justify getting a set of these. Great prices but will not fit my HDB handguard setup.

Good thing I have the on/off lighting switch. I plugged in the stock handlebar switch and the light is on immediately with the key off.
This might well serve as my signature but I command all of you to adhere to this:

One modification at a time!

I installed the TT X2 light and realized that by ordering the Off-road model, it would not be plug and play on the EXC due to tthe blinkers...but I don't hink that is your problem...although I can't tell.

But I do recall when I later installed the stator, that the light came on differently.

My 09 530 EXC is in pieces at the moment so i can't verify what it does now...

Sorry, I can't be more help... call TT

I have been looking at Renthal Twinwall as a replacement and can't seem to figure out how I will install some of the extra switches my EXC has: mapping switch, sicass hi/lo/hon blinker, start button and emergency off switch...not to mention different hanndguards...

I got the off road model as well and it was plug and play. It was the KTM specific model. I'm sure it has to do with the stator/regulator. Not really a problem just an inconvenience.

Well, just took the plunge and ordered the seat concepts foam & cover. I was trying to get used to the stock seat, but it was becoming a real pain in the but! A little pricey compared to the EE soft, I hope it's worth it.

Night and day difference compared to stock. I was ready to throw the whole bike in a ditch after a short ride because of the stock torture device.
The Seat Concepts transformed it! Very worth it in my opinion.

Biggest and bestest

What mod have you done that has been the biggest bang for the buck in your mind.

I'll start... So far the de-smog and re-jet on my 08' has been the best mod so far.

I think I have this sorted out.

Called TT today and it appears I got the wrong stator kit. For future reference if anyone is going to get the stator kit for the 2008-2011 530EXC "with key switch", the correct part number is S-8313. Do not order the S-8310 kit (if you want the power to the light circuit to be energized only when the key is on).
The difference is a jumper wire that is installed between the stator and the headlight.

On the TT website, order the part for the EXC-R/Champions Edition/Racing etc.
Strange but I thought all 450/530EXC models from 2008-2011 came with key switches. Maybe different in countries other than USA.
