If memory serves me correctly, there is an unused power lead with connector in the headlight module. This is customarily used, I think, for powering heated handgrips, but also can be used for any accessory needing power.

Cheers, Will

Hi, has anyone got a picture of this spare power lead and it's location (or a good description) please? I'm looking to put a USB charger on my bike and want to use a switched source.

Correct , and the original KTM power supply outlet connects to that but it again comes with a spare power lead in case you would want to connect other powered accessories like heated handgrips

I don't have a photo handy, but it's very simple to find this accessory lead. Remove the two top bolts holding the headlight module (careful, don't lose the metal grommets), take out the six plastic push rivets and then hinge down the front section of the headlight module. (The repair manual has a good description of this operation.)

With the wiring thus exposed, you will see a white female connector, unused, with, IIRC, a tag label on the wire that reads "ACC". This is your switched accessory connection. Very convenient, easy to access. Nice touch by KTM.

Cheers, Will

Only had a quick time to check but it seems there are two sockets, one was getting 12v with ignition turned. I though the other would be a permanent 12v, but I think it's the earth (I'd assumed I'd be earthing to the frame somewhere) but it's good to have a proper connection.


Next question, it looks like the sockets just contain female blades, and I could probably just push in a male one, but does anyone know where I can get the exact connectors from? I'd like to put a split in, have my connections and also leave available connectors for future use, and leave it looking factory fitted.

Wow, found out why people complain about those top-hat washers. One disappeared down the side of the light cluster and even after removing the whole unit, no amount of shaking would get it out. I had to dismantle it, and even then it didn't just drop out! Think I'll glue them in place.

Yes, opening the headlight binnacle is one of the less impressive aspects of ownership, perhaps KTM left that bit of design to Bajaj

Less is more - You can only use 150hp .001% of the time, but you can use 150kg 100% of the time ...........
