Not only is that a nice seat on that Ronin, but who makes the rear rack?

Not my bike, but that is the ProMoto Billet rack.

Here is a bit more info on that PMB rack - For me (a day tripper) the rack is perfect. http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...3#post20392703 I run a little Dirtbikegear bag on the back.

And I finished up my headlight on/off project last night and am pleased wit the results - we'll see how it does with the vibes. Spliced directly into the brown wire on the back of the light. Pull on/push off.


Much like when my bulb died, when the light is off the high beam indicator lights up (no matter the position of the high/low beam switch) - not a big deal. Easy way to tell if your light is on or off.

That is the KTM hard part rear grab handle. I've got that on the rear and a Kreiga enduro haul loop on the front. It's really nice to have something you can grab onto when you need to lift / drag the bike.

oh ok cool thanks, I'm gonna look into that. I usually just grab the little lip that the plastic makes but it doesn't seem all that sturdy.

the strap on the front is a big plus too. I had the tugger straps on the front and back of my last bike and loved them.

Mounted some supermoto wheels on the KTM today. Ready for the snow to be gone.
All components are KTM hard parts, wheels are tubeless w/cush drive.

I am just guessing. But the hi/low is most often used for heated grips


So what have folks done for heated grips? What kit did you buy and how did you wire it in?

On mine - the two hole have a tye wrap running through them that holds the wiring harness in place.

As to the gap - I will have to take a look when I get home in two weeks and check.

That is an HDB 4 hole computer protector. Send Paul at HDB a picture of the unit and have him give you current pricing. Hopefully I should have one in black waiting for me when I get home

I have installed a squadron LED light and a smaller light/horn/signal switch. Thought I had it all set but have lost my tail light. Signals and break light work but tail light will not. Does anybody know where the tail light gets power from? The stock headlight/signal/horn switch had a grey wire spliced into a green/red hot lead. I think that might be the issue.
