Mine has both and 2 trip meters.
My 13 indicates both ODO and engine hours
The factory instrument panel has many features few people unlock. Besides speed, odometer and hours, there are also; clock, Trip1, Trip2, timers & average speed for each trip meter as well and I believe a stopwatch. You can also adjust Trip2 up and down unlike Trip1 which can only be reset which is nice for route charts and road books. There was also a trip master switch for the left grip to cycle and adjust the screens pending which model speedo you have but has been discontinued
Look in your manual, it's about 5 pages long on setting it up
Thanks for the comprehensive reply. I don't have the manual or an XC-W, yet.
I'm calling about one that's for sale tomorrow and I wasn't sure if I'd be able to find out how many miles are on the bike vs. hours.
Put the switch on mine. Love it.
Cool, hope it works out. I get to ride ever KTM they make, the 500 is my flat out favorite though I race a 250XC for the nimbleness.
If it doesn't come with one, it is downloadable at KTM.com under "service"
Which switch is that? My hard parts switch failed recently and KTM discontinued it. I actually like that design better
Think it is trail tech. Got mine from ebay. Took a little creative wiring and a connector from here. http://www.cycleterminal.com/index.html
Thank you. Our shop has Access to Trail Tech and I never seen it in our books, investigation begins!
Thanks for the link.
Here is mine on the first bigger trip through Lesotho:

Great shots, Xpat! I love your trip reports. Did you get rid of your 690 Rally? Also, is that the Reckless 80 or 40 on there? I can't tell.
Thanks. I still have 690 - its my continent crossing cruiser and use it mostly for open flowing stuff like deserts and bush. 500 is for weekends and mire technical trips like lesotho mountains.
The luggage is Rekless 40. I would like to get 80 as well for 690, but it is major mission trying to get it from us, so will stick with 40.
KTM mechanic told me, that the factory rep told him, that the xcw and euro map are exactly the same.
Jumping fine, landing not so fine. This weekend I was invited to ride a private motocross track. I love jumping shit but the landings are brutal.
So as a follow up to my wildly popular video "How not to ride Hard Enduro" I give you "How not to ride Motocross"!
It proves that there is no moto discipline that I don't suck at
Very nice! You sure you have the right springs for your weight innthat thing?
I picked up a nice 2014 450 XC-W last week. It's super clean. The only electrical modification made by the previous owner is the addition of a rear brake switch. I'll get a battery tender on it at some point but I travel for a living and need to leave town and don't have time to mess with it.
I've never owned a bike that has no key. I guess technically, the electrical system is "hot" all the time. Do you guys disconnect your battery when it's not on a tender?
Also, recommendations for radiator guards? And a slightly larger tank? IMS vs. Acerbis? I see there was a problem with an Acerbis tank discussed earlier in this thread.
It's easy to put a switch on it... http://sicassracing.com/store/produ...5_2218&zenid=178074cbaea36def5f310b7ddca007be ...
When the motor starts, the "generator powers up the reg/rec that grounds (turns on) the 2 relays under the right side cover for lights and ecu power. No need to disconnect the battery.
My "13 450xcw gets a little better than 60mi/gal at my relaxed pace. I have the Acerbis 4.1 and that's probably more than I need, but it does provide a little protection for the radiators.
