    Wanted to introduce my new company and products to the AdvRider community. At TrueNorthMotos we have developed some new products for the small KTM and Husqvarna bikes.

    2017-2019 HUSQVARNA XABR FE/TE 250-501 RACK
    Our rack was developed for long distance enduro rides, single track use, trail maintenance, or to be a platform for whatever you need to mount to your bike . It has an 3/16” aluminum top plate that provides a Rotopax mount, accepts a PMB chain saw mount, and is a platform for different top bags. There are also forward and low tie down hoops for horseshoe style saddlebags. The sides of the rack are constructed from .095 wall DOM tubing and are TIG welded. The side hoops provide protection for the exhaust/bike and incorporate a Rotopax mount. Being a modular system it only requires you to remove the right side number plate to install. The top plate is anodized black, tubing is powder coated for durability, and available in black or Husky blue. Weight of rack is 8 lbs. and is capable of carrying 40 lbs when distributed evenly. Takes 15-20 minutes to install and once on the bike does not interfere with air filter access. trimming of the right side frame guard is required. Optional side plates available soon. $375

    KTM/HUSQVARNA XCW/TE LIGHTING KIT WITH TURN SIGNALS
    Kit was designed to make your bike street legal in most states. This is a plug and play kit that uses factory OEM connectors, turn signal harness, and switches. Included in the kit is OEM turn signal harness, turn signals, rear brake pressure switch, CEV multi function switch, horn, and our adapters to make everything plug and play. This will work on 2012-2020 models. $375

    KTM/HUSQVARNA XCW/TE LIGHTING KIT
    Kit was designed to make your bike street legal in states that don’t require turn signals. This is a plug and play kit to convert your KTM/Husky XCW/TE to a street legal machine. It includes an OEM brake pressure switch, and CEV multi function switch. These parts along with our adapter harnesses will provide HI/Low, rear brake light, and horn. Horn is not included in the kit. $175

    Also we are in the process of developing racks for the 2020 KTM/Husky bikes, and hope to have them available to the public in a month.

    We are offering free shipping in the lower 48 to the AdvRider community (up to a $30 value on racks) with the coupon code ADVFREESHIP. Check us out at truenorthmotos.com

    Really nice layout on the racks. Too many racks are just ugly box frames when panniers aren't on the bike. These look slick with easy attachment points for common soft sided luggage.

    Hey Dan, 2017 KTM 350 EXC-F. I’d like to replace the OEM left control switches with the CEV style. Horn, blinkers, hi/low beam.
    Do you offer this in a plug and play version?
    Thanks

    Finally got a lift yesterday. I can finally work on the bikes in comfort. This year has been exceptionally dark and wet in the nw corner of oregon, and i cant muster the interest to ride in it. Looks like some decent weather in the forecast though! ED6CB5B2-A7FB-406F-A90D-4010AE800173.jpeg

    Nice bike and lift! It’s definitely been wet here in the PNW! Bust out the Gore Tex and don’t forget your towel for the winter riding.

    Comment/food for thought: I've had to exit off the back of my TE 300 quite a few times. Enough times to not want anythingbthat will grab my clothes or my flesh. I really like the support bar, but less so the flat top. Maybe think about a smaller profile for the flat. My 2 cents.

    Appreciate the suggestion and insight but I cant really take much material off the top plate without getting rid of the tie down points, or doing a complete redesign of the mounting. If the tabs for mounting the top plate were moved to the inside it would interfere with getting to the rotopax and chainsaw mount. We have tested it extensively, others and myself haven’t had any issues getting off the back of the bike. Check out this video at starting at 4:20 and you’ll see an example of a dismount with no interference. The way the tubing stickS out just past the plastics guides your legs up and past the top plate.

    Yes. I see that now. The tubes guide your leg past the obstruction, for lack of a better description. Excellent. Well, this is on my list then: it looks like a great piece of kit.

    Installed the CEV switch. The install was extremely easy. A lot of space is now available for clutch lever adjustment.

    Thanks Dan!

    No Problem! Thanks for the business. Just a suggestion, I prefer to turn the top part of the switch around so the horn and kill are facing the rear of the bike. Makes it much easier to use IMO.

    You are spot on!

    I tested the functions and thought that my setup is a bit awkward.

    Thanks
