    I like those too! If you decide to order some from “over there”, let me know, I might get them too and we could split the freight. Or if I get busy and find them, I’ll let you know. Or maybe US dealers can get them; I just know that KTM has blocked US dealers from acces to the European LED turn signals!

    I vinyl wrapped mine in all satin black while I was waiting for a sticker set to come from Europe and had no durability problems, but then again I left the black fender alone and as-is.

    Paging @khemist to the white courtesy phone. Can you post some more pictures of your graphics, especially the front and rear fenders? The pictures you put up already show us just enough to want more closeups!

    I ordered the TST signals (to go with the TST tail tidy, which is a super nice piece). The TST relay is fine, but I would go with the KTM OEM if doing it again.

    His pics earlier in this thread hint at what is there, but I'd also like to see more detailed pics. Perhaps

    Sharp!

    What handlebar perches are those? Haven't seen them before.

    Thanks! This weekend I can fiddle around on the interwebs and see if I can find a way to get them easily on this side of the pond. Very curious why we didn’t get them over here.

    Ordered a new LED headlight also, one of the cheap aliexpress ones, should be good enough.

    I had seen some of these but wasn't sure if they were a real upgrade - most are a whole new housing etc.. I don't ride much at night but a little more light would be nice.

    I like the one I got from Aliexpress. It's a much better pattern if nothing else. This time of year, I don’t get a lot of chance to ride in darkness so I can’t say I’ve given it a full test but it seems good. EBF2F423-A369-4AB0-BE7A-75A0E7242A18.jpeg

    No wiring change needed really. The light comes with the four individual wires loose, but with terminated with pins. It also comes with the correct connector, so all you do is push the pins into the right spot.


    From bike side to the light side of the connector…

    For those who have installed the “oem” led headlight, is there no way to have high and low beams?? Mine only works on low beam, albeit very bright, I would like to be able to have a choice. Or it would be nice if it worked the same on both, if not. If it gets put on high beam the headlight actually turns completely off.

    Can anyone explain what the deal is with passenger pegs on the 2020/21 SMCR?Specifically on Canadian/NA models. I see some have them, some don't. Is it an option? or just some dealers request them with that? I might be buying from a dealer a fair distance from me, so it would be nice to know what to expect spec wise with a new bike. So many things seem to vary from bike to bike, such as the new brake caliper, the tach, the suspension specs etc etc...
    Cheers!

    I have a 2019 and thankfully my dealer didn’t install the rear pegs. Because when you do, you have to drill holes through the panels to put the hand rails/holds on. I think that’s why you see some with and some without. Probably some dealers think that you have to put them on and some believe it’s optional.
