Tom Schmitz timothys687 -

It is an ABS panel that I made from 1/8" ABS sheet. The swtich kills the headlight; it's easier on the battery when the thing gets flooded from, uh, taking a nap in the dirt and when it doesn't want to start on a cold morning at high altitude. That sort of thing.

The socket is a Powerlet (aka a BMW plug) that is wired directly to the battery and fused at 15A. I use it to run my compressor.

The mess below all that is the valve for the chain oiler.

Cabrito Looks handy,, a little spendy, but it could be nice in a pinch.

Adventure-Moto Cool device for muddy days I bet! That would be a big help on slick terrain.

Family forum buddy. Watch it....

If the KTM has a frame tube diameter the same as the KLR, then it's likely it will fit.

Just need to find a good spot to install it so that he would have proper leverage.

It clicks into the open position, and clicks back into the closed position.

Very cool! I see them now and get how it works. I am totally sold just add it to the list and maybe see a set in a couple years of saving up. lol

I wonder if they will fit a KTM? My friend is a 3rd my mass, with only a center stand no side stand, and it is a good laugh every time we stop watching him try to get it up.

Interesting RB, didn't even think about that.
