Prepare to overheat your credit card.

Right off the bat i need a skid plate. Anybody have any recommendations? I was looking for a hard plastic (i don't like the look of the metal ones). Anyone have the acerbis?[/QUOTE]

aren't the little wheels cute!

Well I got the flat they were delivered with fixed and got them on again. Couple of laps around the neighborhood and ready for the commute. And maybe a private member day at the local track. Downside is in my haste to mount the sickass flush mount rear blinkers to their subfender, I cut one of the wires going to the tail light, so I had to put the crap original subfender back on until I can get the sickass subfender wires fixed.
Also got my Double Take mirrors today, but hadn't put them on for the pic.

ps, anyone running 17's tell me the wheel size code for the 17" rims. My manual only shows 2205 for 21" front.

Best is to mark the tire, push it two or three turns, mark it and measure.

+2 for the skidplate . Easy on and off and protects well.

Wiring diagram for heated grips & powerlet

I am eagerly awaiting my HDB handguard and topclamp setup. I have ordered a powerlet socket and switch for heated grips in the clamp and will also relocate my ignition to there as well.

In anticipation of installing both can anyone tell me how they did this? Did you just go back to the battery? Did you tap into a switched wire? Did you install fuses?

Sorry I can do electrical work if I have a clear step by step but dont know where to start from scratch. Any assistance appreciated!

Thanks.

Generally it's considered a good idea to go straight off the battery. Be sure to used an automotive style fuse and have it physically close to the battery. The fuse protects you from over loading the circuit with too much current. This can be caused by two conditions: 1.) Excessive load from whatever you connect. 2.) The wire chafes through say due to rubbing, and a short is created. Without a fuse, either could lead to a fire condition. Also, if the fuse is too far from the battery, the short could be between the fuse and the battery and you could still have a fire.

You need to be careful of the draw you put on the charging system. If you exceed the available output of the stator, you'll be drawing down the battery as you ride, until dead. You'll need to calculate the load on your stator from your lighting setup, subtract that from the output (watts) of the stator. This is what's available for your accessory socket.

You also need to decide on a fuse size and wire gauge. Obviously, you'll want both to handle a bit more than your anticipated load on the socket. The fuse size and wire gauge should be correlated. Here's a nice chart to help you select:

http://www.offroaders.com/tech/12-volt-wiring-gauge-chart.htm

Your devices you put on your socket may have power or current (at 12 volts) specified for your calculations.

Volts (12) x Amps (current) = Watts (power)

Hope this helps.

Question Your setup is looking great. Are you doing anything for subframe support?

My bike brand new fan didn't come on. Bad sensor. Dealer installed new one before delivery. Fan does work just fine now. Think I'm going to ditch the thermostat setup.

air temp sensor

Had air filter out of 13 - 500 exc other day and was looking forward into air boot

on top of the duct that runs to the throttle plate is a hole with a sensor coming in -I think its air temp sensor for the FI

It comes in at a hard angle- its not sticking down straight- I thought it looked bent to the side

Then looking out outside of duct/boot- you see it bolts on an angle

so I think thats just how it is

Next time you have airfilter out- look forward at little white sensor top inside duct -is your on a hard angle ?

Best source for 17" wheels for 2012 500 KTM? Should I consider buying used?

Yes - by testing the subframe on Tim Morton's Baja Bound Tecate to Cabo ride in September

To give you a serious answer - no
