Also, check that hose hasn't burned where it goes by the exhaust pipe, easy to have them burn a hole there and then you'll get the oily mess pictured.

There should be a loose tie-wrap around the hose that goes down below the carb to the c/case and the flexi idle adjuster cable to hold the breather pipe assembly away from the exhaust. They come out the factory like this anyway, may have been discarded when previous owner did the mod.

So I had an open pushbutton slot by my left handgrip and did not want to spend the $60+ that KTM charges for a remote odometer control switch.


The top red button is an on/off switch for the heated grips:


So I got this:

trailtech remote switch extension cable ($10),


and a black momentary button, wired them together and voila'...a button that allows you to scroll through all the odometer functions from the handlebars.

Thanks to PFb here is the wiring diagram:


KTM Computer <-> Trailtech Switch

Yellow = Mode <-> Green = Middle Button
Blue = + <-> White = Top Button
Purple = - <-> Yellow = Bottom Button
Green = Common <-> Red


I think some older KTM computers have a brown wire instead of the purple, same function.

In addition to the four wire 'external switch' connector, the KTM computer has a two wire connector (magnet pickup, white and gray wires) and a three wire connector for backlight/external power. The computer works perfectly and retains all functions without the external power being connected, but you won't get the nice orange backlight.

You can wire the power feed to the computer always hot. The backlight turns on as soon as the computer activates (front wheel rotation or hit any of the buttons), and turns off when the computer times out after sixty seconds of no activity.
Power Connector Colors:
Red = 12V
Brown = Ground
Black = Cripple (street legal mode)
DO NOT connect the black wire to ground!

If you do, it puts the computer into 'street legal' mode and locks out some of the computer enduro functions. Also won't allow you to set wheel size. Just clip it and forget that it is even there.

Yes, on a big GS though. Liked them. On these little bikes I do not find them necessary

Non-KTM but a laugh nonetheless :

Man sues BMW after motorcycle seat allegedly causes 2-year erection
Viagra and Cialis apparently have nothing on a BMW motorcycle seat. According to a lawsuit filed last week in San Francisco Superior Court, the seat left its driver with a two-year erection.
Henry Wolf filed suit against BMW North America and Corbin-Pacific, Inc. He claimed in the lawsuit that the “ridged seat” of his 1993 BMW motorcycle caused him mental and emotional anguish after it left him with a severe case of priapism, aka a long-lasting erection.
Wolf said he rode the motorcycle in San Francisco on a four-hour round trip on May 1, 2010 and developed the priapism soon after.
Wolf “has been experiencing continuing problems since his motorcycle ride,” his attorney, Vernon Bradley of Sausalito wrote in the lawsuit. “He is now unable to engage in sexual activity, which is causing him substantial emotional and mental anguish.”
The motorcycle seat was manufactured by Corbin-Pacific, Inc., the suit said. Wolf suffered wage loss, hospital expenses, general damage and emotional distress from his condition, and he is seeking an unstated amount of compensation, the suit said.

just picked up an 09 530 exc a couple weekends ago. first woods ride this past weekend. i can tell im gonna love this bike. it ran great in dry conditions but bogged completely in deep mudpuddles and creek crossings. im hoping taking all the smog stuff off will fix this before somebody runs up my tailpipe. was the little black box down by the swingarm filling with water i presume. desmog in progress today. i ve got a lot of reading to do here though ive kept up with this thread regularly through the years. thanks for all the input here as it was a big reason i went with the 530
