    Just and FYI. This outlet is hot 24/7. I use it to power my cell phone and found out by accident that it has poor hours after the key is off and removed.

    I just rode the standard model today. What a great bike! I'm going to put a deposit down and wait for the new shipment to come in sometime in March or April. I did notice that the horn was almost non-functional! I thought that it was because it was a demo bike.

    Ok People,
    Tell me if I'm wacked.....but could we just do this?

    Use the switched lead to a relay that activates the un-switched lead? This would give us a 10amp output for our heated gear that is essentially switched. The Acc1 switched (1amp) circuit could provide the relay power and the Acc2 un-switched (10amp) circuit providing the power.

    I think Reno KTM has a Grey Unit in stock. Good price, good service. Ask for Mark, he is the owner.

    I connected my Heated gear plug Straight to the Battery, that would be my suggestion vs using an ACC plug.

    Guys, behind the headlight is a white plug for the original KTM heated grips, but you can also plug other heated grips on it! I have connected my heated gloves to that and it is working great! The advantage of that way is that you now have the ability to select the three levels of heating directly in the menu at the handle bar buttons! No additional swich relay or pwm is necessary!

    OUTSTANDING, thanks for that info.:clap
    Was wondering if that was possible and if other heated grips would work, or gloves for that matter.
    How did you know what plugs to use?
    Once you plugged in your gloves, or grips, I assume it came up in the menu on the dash for the different levels of adjustment?

    There is a singel two wired plug! The brown wire is minus!
    If you have pluged in your heating stuff go the menu and activate grip heating (or similar, i have german menue) by turning to ON ! Than you have a new menu screen for heating with 3 Levels! I will post a picture when i m home again!

    Not irritated, inspired! You are an evil genius, and your bike is an inspiration. Show us what you're working on?

    I like that idea but do you have any idea how much amperage that circuit is rated for? If it is going through the canbus I would worry about pulling too much current through it.

    It's not connected to the canbus. It's a isolated PWM module in the unit. I read something about min 5 Amps to max 10 Amps. So if you have heated grips with 55W should be fine.

    My heated gloves have 40W!!!

    I would post pictures, but I am forum illiterate, plus I want to ride the bike more and thus don't want to sit in front of the cpu long enough to get educated.

    Impressions.

    Awesome, Smooth, Great power delivery, HOT and NOT TALL. All the post made it seem like it was a Husaberg 570 dirtbike. I am 5'11.75 and its super easy. Both feet down if I want.



    Hot....its 78 degrees here ( hot for California) and man the thing is hot. I thought they figured out the heat problem on the 2014. I searched and saw someone was developing heat shields. Anyone found the trick? I also through I remember reading that someone took the heat reflective off of the seat. But man, it was hot I got to change that.

    I guess I am kind of crazy, I bought the bike sight unseen. I missed all the demo tours and could not seem to find one in California. So I found one in Oregon and had it shipped here today. So Far, so good besides the heat the bike seems sweet. :1drink

    I am coming from a Husky 310 dirtbike and a 03 Dakar beater.

    Anyone with any decent miles under their belt care to share reliability pros/cons so far? Thinking of another 11 or 12 GS, air/oil camhead...I know, I know....but really would prefer the 1190, however concerned re KTM reliability and support, especially with all the new electronics. Thankshttp://d26ya5yqg8yyvs.cloudfront.net/ear.gif

    I understand your concerns, yes the bike does get hot, i rode home from work yesterday it was 39 degrees and the bike felt quite warm along my calf muscles and inner legs and under the seat.
    THis will be just perfect for our winter here in Australia.
    I am adjusting to the heat and tend to focus more on the joy of the ride.
    I also open my legs abit from time to time as a sort of a vent.
    Maybe this is how most twins are i dont know as i have never owned a twin..

    But i tell you my friend this bike is just amazing on some many other diffrent levels, its purely a joy to ride and own aside from its small foibles

    Happy owner..YES:D

    it is currnently about 70 here in Sacramento. In the morning I look forward to the heat, in the afternoon, not so much. But after about 45 mph I do not notice the heat. I'm sure that the temps go up I'll have a different feeling, but I'm sure enjoying the bike right now.
