Yep. And it's not fake either.... Looks like the gear pos sensor on neutral switch (can't remember which ) behind the side stand relocator. Nother project for the winter.

At least you know what you're up against...

Just fixed mine...

It was leaking into my skid plate for a few months before I got to it. It's the gear position indicator most likely. I sourced a similar o-ring by sizing slightly thicker non-metric at NAPA. Also applied some permatex gasket maker around the mating surfaces just to be sure (I figured if the OEM had leaked after 14000 miles, good chance it needed some help)...no leaks yet...

Wow, great video. I've never ridden on snow, is it very slippery or is it just like gravel?

Added new dual headlight kit

Installed BMacW650's dual headlight kit today and will be testing the added luminance.





The kit is high quality and smart designed. And BMac was extremely generous with his New Years Day phone support.

Oh, I never want to even drive on that stuff again.
I need to go put a sweater on just looking at that picture.
"Studly Adventurer" for certain.

Broke the chain.

Unbelievably though, it happened only a couple miles from home and didn't do any major damage, only some scratches on the swingarm:)

10k miles on it..

Looks like it could have done with a bit of lube

Installed some toggle switches for heated grips and aux lights into the stock housing, was tight but possible, should even be possible to squeeze a third in there should I find a need for it:

Quick Relase for SHED 45 Box

I purchased a used SHED 45 box from an inmate. The box comes with a modular mounting plate. The box connects to the plate with a lockable quick release mechanism. The rack has multiple mounting holes that can be used to attach it to the bike with 4 screws:



The Dirty Dak already has a Black Dog rear rack with a SW-MOTECH horse-shoe style quick release bracket for the KTM Rear Tail bag:



I want to keep the Black Dog plate and the SW_MOTECH bracket, but also have a quick release for the SHED mounting plate.

Solution: make room for the SW-MOTECH quick release horseshoe inside the SHED plate. This is done by cutting the plastic square support ribs on the under side of the plate:



The solution are 4 clevis and 4 cotter pins:



The clevis pins fit exactly into the SHED's plate little red shims. The lanyard cable is there to ensure the cutter pins won't get lost if they slip out of the clevis pins:



The clevis pins are just long enough to make it past the Black Dog plate.


To attach the SHED plate, lower it down onto the Black Dog plate, lining up the clevis pins with the 4 newly drilled holes:



Slide the cutter pins into the clevis pins:



SHED plate and SW-MOTECH are now attached to the Black Dog plate:





And the SHED 45 is mounted on the Dirty Dak with 4 quick release pins:



Total cost for the quick release 8 pins and 2 cable lanyards: $12, including shipping

SAS removal , Cannisterectomy , Rottweiler air intake , Snap Out Glove ( easy bake oven ) box, Doghouse, and used Tune ECU and uploaded a different map and the bike actually runs ! The last bit I am most proud of as changing the map was the scariest , yet easiest part of the whole project.

Very cool. I plan on adding the intake and toybox soon. I figure when I do the valve check/set in a month or so. I don't have ABS so I'll have a ton of storage under the seat.
Which map did you end up using?
