… As simple as adding a zip-tie

March in Denmark this year had the lowest temperature in a hundred years. But today is was sunny, and the temperature was + 7 C, so I did a quick 100 km backroad rush. There’s still a lot of ice in the sea close to the coast, but the rising sun will win eventually.
Finally !!! This project actually took me most of the winter to finish. First, I had to wait for the Carbon Fiber parts to be produced by HFCarbon in Germany (Excellent service and communication BTW) Then I had to do the pre-assembly and the small adjustments/modifications you always need to do on hand made parts [...]
Just missing a few parts before I can finish the project. More pictures later
With Rizoma flashers, Gipro gear indicator, and pressure release valves. Head light assembly is not installed yet.
Nothing wrong with the original ones – I just like them in Orange…..
Beautiful craftmanship – and multi adjustable. Like getting a new box of Lego
Very usefull on a big single with a narrow power band. And now you know what the mysterious aluminum bracket was for
Mostly a farkle ….
Took more time than expected, but I’m happy with the result
Look at the tube profile for the rear frame construction. Extruded tubes with internal reinforcement – this is not cheap stuff. The KTM is made of high quality material – even where (almost) no one will ever see it. No wonder they are expensive bikes.
When you’re working with the wiring loom, you need to take your time so everything is done properly. No one wants electrical gremlins popping up on the road.
I looked at a lot of different LED flashers before I found these beauties from Rizoma. Much smaller than the OEM ones, and I think I made the right choice.
It took me quite some time to figure out how to make this bracket. I’m not telling what it’s for – yet
The nut that holds the front LED flashers is not easy to reach. I just made this special tool that solves the problem nicely.
The original fuel injection mapping switch is located behind the engine, and is not easy to reach. This means that you never really use the opportunity to switch to the map that fits the roads you’re riding. Wiht the new aftermarket switch on the handlebar, switching maps gets really easy. Only issue is that you [...]
Placed under the rear part of the seat. This allows me to keep the battery charged when the bike is in the garage – and to keep power on the phone when travelling
Installed a new tiny flasher relay that can handle the smaller electrical load from the LED flashers. The top picture is the original flash relay, the lower picture shows the new one.
Nice quality from HF Carbon Parts
These Parts are hand made by Christoph in Austria – carbon freak and fellow KTM rider. Very good craftmanship
