What is this connector?

Recommended Posts

I like the old-style: buy relays anywhere, not that I will bother any time soon.

wonder if that fancy new-style battery strap will retro-fit to the '13s?:)

Dont fix what aint broke, right?

Very true.

Need signals for plates here. The bike has everything but the relay and the signals themselves.  Kind of surprised me.

I had to laugh over this in the owner's manual:

 

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
• The vehicle must be accompanied by: number-plate, registration document, tax
disc and insurance.
• Do not carry animals, pets or loose objects that can stick out from the vehicle.
• Riding without a crash helmet is forbidden.
• Always ride with the low beam on.
• Any modifications of the engine or other parts resulting in a power and/or speed
increase are punishable by severe sanctions including the confiscation of the vehicle.

• To protect your safety and that of others, always drive carefully and with your helmet
on.

 

Boy, would most of us be in trouble.  :smirk:

I figured by it's shape that was what it was. I'm surprised, old school automotive connector versus the newer relay style used by KTM.

If you get a flasher it need to have a ground lead on it if you use LED signals

The Grote flasher 44891 was only 18 bucks and didn't have to mod anything.

The advantage to the Grote if you ground it is no initial surge timing issue like the EP37. On a LED only circuit it takes the EP37 .5s or so before it properly flashes. This bothers some, for most it isn't an issue. I've used the EP37 before on low load circuits before.
