Well-built, durable, complete kit.
Kit not only adds the protection of the skid plate itself (compared to the joke of a "skid plate" KTM puts on there) but relocates mount points to the chassis/frame, and relocates the side stand to the frame instead of bosses on the engine.
Mostly just moto bling.
- Clutch Slave Cylinder protector
- Rear Brake Reservoir protector
- Rear Brake Master Cylinder protector
- Forward Chain Guard
Kit's decent, comes with all the hardware and decent instructions to install the parts. It's an improvement over the factory plastic (or non-existent) parts, but a good hit may still damage critical pieces.
Opened up a window on the chain guard, the fastener for one of the strobe light heads rubbed on that surface. That issue is unique to my bike and its accessories.
Remember to clean/degrease and loc-tite the fasteners. This big bike likes to shed bolts.
Adds 4 configurable power outputs for accessories and lights. Connects to vehicle's CANBus to enable features without tapping into the factory wiring harness. Very clean and highly configurable device.
With this, i'm running:
- Aux Lights (Denali D2 pods)
- Aux Brake lights (Feniex T3 perimeter lights on side cases)
- Emergency lights (Feniex T3 perimeter lights, 10 around bike)
- Soundbomb horn (Future installation)
Terrific little LED pods for auxiliary lighting.
Combine these lights with the CANSmart controller, and you get all sorts of features with them:
- Configurable brighness based on ambient light and high/low headlight positions
- Strobe mode on horn and/or flash-to-pass (flash the brights 3 times, aux lights strobe on/off for a few cycles)
- Alternating on/off with hazards - make yourself more visible than just 4-ways offer
Motorola Solutions XPR5550e two-way radio installation.
- RF Deck: The "Guts"/brains of the radio. Mounts in the right/exhaust side case, in the area where the exhaust relief is cut out. This radio is the low-power (1-30W) model.
- Antenna: EMWave GPS/NMO mount installed on the top-rear of the side case. The GPS antenna provides location over data services for commercial and public safety radio systems, having that antenna integrated in the mount makes for a cleaner install. EMWave-Flex Ground-Plane-Independent antenna for the radio itself.
- Control head: Remote-mounted control head allows for installation of the radio's front panel on the dash, where it can be seen and operated while riding. Talkgroup/channel selection, modes like talkaround/scan/roam/power, and messaging/private-calling are done on here. Fab'd a plug to close the mic connector on there and make it waterproof, since I don't use the hand-mic.
- PTT switch mounted on the left-side handlebar button block. SPDT momentary switch on the top gives me PTT when I push it forward (easy to do while riding), and a monitor toggle by rocking it backwards.
- Bluetooth audio to the Cardo Freecom 4+ on my helmet. Radio "calls" the headset which establishes full-duplex audio between the headset and RF deck.
Programming/updates for this radio are done over wifi through the job processor server, which nearly eliminates touch-time to update my fleet. I make the updates and push the job out, when my radios power up they check for jobs on that server and apply the updates as needed.
Amber/Whites, controllerless vehicle emergency lighting. CAN YOU SEE ME NOW?
10 light heads mounted as stealthy as possible around the bike. On brackets tucked behind the windshield and below the front air dam, side-firing from behind the headlight mask, subframe-mount on Z-channel near the pegs/rear shock, tucked between the rear fender and top-case platform. Hard to see when that switch is off, hard to miss when they're on. I didn't want it to look like a "cop bike" so I hid the light heads as best I could.
Configurable Master/Slave for a dozen or so flash patterns, and synchable to each other. Toggle on the dash to cycle through patterns.
Custom wiring harness to connect all the light heads. Power is sourced from the CANSmart power controller, from there into a tee, and a front-half harness for lights on the fairing and near the footpegs, a rear-half harness for lights on the rear fender and license plate bracket.
Holds tight, easy to adjust, DURABLE!
These replaced the OEM ones after the glass broke in a minor tip-over. The complete Doubletake setup was cheaper than a single OEM to replace the broken one, so it was a no-brainer upgrade.
Cyclops Adventure Sports 3800 Lumen H4 LED Headlight Bulb
Inexpensive and worthwhile improvement to the crappy factory halogen bulbs. Fan behind the LED module whirrs a little, noticeable when the bike is first fired up.
Tusk High Fender Kit replaces the original low-fender. Relocates the horn mount, included offset brackets for the fork guards and all necessary hardware to do the fender install.
USE CAUTION when installing the fender - there's brake lines and the ambient temp sensor where the fender bolts to, it's easy to pinch wires/hoses when torquing down those bolts. Remember to use loctite, the big bikes like to rattle nuts/bolts loose.
I'm also not a big fan of the fork guard mounting hardware - using appropriate-length bolts and acorn nuts would really clean up the installation.
But it does look better, especially if you're running knobbies and riding the bike offroad.
