    Any idea where I could pick up a few of the connectors that KTM/Husaberg uses? I'd like to make a conversion plug for my TrailTech HID headlight to let it plug in to the stock wiring harness that will let me unplug it and reconnect the stock headlight without having to cut/solder wires.

    Thanks

    I've been ordering parts from here recently: ktmpartshouse.com

    They're cheaper that ktm-parts.com, even with their 10% login discount and occasional 5-10% email coupons. And their service is pretty good.

    But you don't get the stuff nearly as fast as going through the local dealer. We have a pretty good one in Portsmouth NH, and another good one in NW NH.

    Can you guys help me locate where if this ktm connector is molex and where I'd get the connector and pins from for the female side?

    They tie in with the connector codes in the official KTM wiring diagrams.

    eg on the 2005 640A, the rear taillight uses a AJ/BG combo (male/female).

    H2o you are a legend !!

    I owe you a beer. Next time you're in Australia look me up.

    Cheers mate really appreciate it.

    I'd like to get the special tools as well to properly crimp and remove pins when needed.

    I might just take you up on the beer later this year if all goes well.

    If you were a little closer I would lend you one of my crimpers. Here is a link for a decent open barrel crimper that will work on a wide range of connectors and wire gauges. http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail...%2bd80isUQ==&gclid=CPDG45i6tLUCFQhxQgodpC4AlQ It should be reasonably priced as well.

    I do alot of custom harnesses and it gets expensive if you are buying the OEM crimpers, some of my crimpers are $500 plus.

    Can you guys help me out with some Ktm switch specifics.

    I have a Baja designs dual hid lapaz headlight to install. They currently have toggle switching on the light frame but I want to move the switching to my eu ktm exc switch block.

    The hids are 35 watts each.

    Do I need to run a relay to switch these lights on? I plan to have lo beam as the spread light and high beam will be both lights on.

    This is the switch I'm using:
