    I have a KTM 950 and am looking for a cheap solution for turning my KTM speedo (Trip 2), into an ICO. The KTM Trip Master switch is $150 for a handle bar mounted switch, I just figured some one may have come up with a low cost solution.

    Any help? :eek1

    the price for the switch here in the states is $48.99 - not sure what that converts to in ozzi dollars, but that seems pretty reasonable to me

    there about $130 if you get them from a dealer over here . So order one from the states and it will still work out cheaper .

    it's the name of the company that makes the digital speedo on KTM's (and other bikes)

    Here's a link to a distributor here in the USA for the tripmaster switch

    http://www.ktm-parts.com/Merchant2/...roduct_Code=58214069044&Category_Code=KTMHESP

    not exactly sure that is the correct part, but it should be.. they have a very similar one for the smaller dirt bikes; and not sure the difference (I read it once, but forgot)

    With the tripmaster switch, you can increment and decrement trip2 in the odometer. Useful when following roadbooks, especially after you get lost and then back on track again. You can adjust the odo to the mileage you want and get back on track again.

    I played around with this a few months ago.
    My first attempt was to get a momentary pushbutton switch from radio shack, drill a hole in switch housing, and hook up to brown and brown yellow wires in switchmaster connnector AN/4.

    The conector is tie wraped under inst. cluster. I belive it is rectancluar with four wires,brown, br/yellow, yellow, gr/red.
    Brown wire is ground.
    Brown/yellow cycles functions.
    yellow and gr/red increments trip 2 up and down.
    I found a small switch @ radio shack PN 275-1571 that looks like you could get all three to fit.
    So far I only have the one switch installed to cycle functions. I haven't tried to fill the hole I made for big switch and install the small ones.
    I'll probally just mount 2 more switches in dash next to spedo.

    I did the exact same thing following the lead of a good 950 friend. I was trying to remember to take a picture and post it but you beat me to it. Like you, I only wanted the ability to cycle through functions without having to reach up to the cluster while riding.

    I also use the ICO switch to cycle my KTM instrument, butt I use one of these for "serious" rally work. Has 4 resettable tripometers and calibrates with a CF to within a "gnat's ass" of true rally miles/km.

    I guess if you already have the ICO instrument, then it makes sense to use it on the KTM - but that sucker is $112 from TT!:eek1

    I want to add one as well, and I think KTM's is still overpriced at $48, but it will be a clean install and plug and play. I thought about the DIY approach with RS switches, but didn't want to screw up the switch housing.

    If someone could post wiring details of the tripmaster switch, people could add their own switches to perform the same functions, like Jaydee has.

    EDIT - MUST LEARN TO READ BEFORE POSTING

    Sorry

    Can you elaborate for me please. I have hooked up the switch that cycles the functions but what are the next 2 switches you talk about???

    Cheers,

    It takes 3 switches to use all the ODO functions.
    With ODO in trip 2 a monentary ground to yellow increments the ODO one direction, I forget which way. Gr/red goes the other way.
    So if you miss a turn you can back off the mileage to match route chart.
