I don’t mind, and paid 12900 € , stock, and a bit more for heatings grip, Puig high screen , and Givi monokey panniers carriers,
Done first 270 km yesterday, as the high screen was not delevired, the conc put a Ktm touring screen, very deceiving, but the bike is a wonder, such a powerful motor and efficient shock absorbers, I hope to get asap the high screen, my 1,87 m, needs a high protection,
Turning back to the past, this bike reminds me the KAWASAKI KLE 500, which was my first great trail, and «*big*» cylinder, 25 years ago, but this time with 125 CV !, anyway the feeling is quite the same, freedom...again !

To day I have mounted GPS , AC plug, TUTORO Oiler, for those who plan to fit any electric accessories, a good news, just take off the black plastic round cap on the left side of the beam, and you will find two connectors, ACC1 and ACC2 , short wired but you can pull them out to plug anything, the second one is permanently powered, I guess this allows to plug a battery charger.
TUTORO is a chain oiler easy to fit on this bike, as the hose can follow invisibly the rear arm, just use neoprene glue.

Do you have pictures of your AC plug install?

Picked her up from dealers had a 100 mile ride. Fitted a power connector which was very simple why KTM removed them is a mystery.Removed canister bracket so toolkit will fit, again why KTM didn't put it to one side is beyond me. Fitted an autokicker sat nav bag to handlebars which works perfect and has a small amount of storage.Just need the weather to get a bit better to get some mileage on it.

Electrical plug install.

Pop out the plastic cover to expose two sets of wires. One set is always hot (yellow w/ red stripe and brown) and the other will be powered when the key is switched on (red w/ black stripe and brown).

Finagle (that's a technical term) the nut that screws onto the socket mount in where the wires are kept. After I got it in the compartment, I put a drop of superglue on the outside of the nut so it stayed in place so I could get a better hold on it. There's not much room to work with.

Screw the mount onto the nut while holding it from the bottom side as best you can. Don't forget to put the mount through the socket cap loop (if you have one) before you screw it in.

Connect the positive wire (either the red and black or yellow and red...depending on how you'd like to connect it) to the center post of the socket and negative (brown) wire to the outside post then slide the socket into the mount until it locks into place.

Awesome! Thanks, kind of a pain but definitely opens up a lot of needed space.

Road the last 45 miles home in a tow truck :-( Complete bummer. Did not even make it to 200 miles. When I picked it up this afternoon, the mechanic explained "draining" the ECU memory by touching the (disconnected) battery cables together. Is this something anyone has done? I'm afraid to try as I just bought the bike today. The dealer I purchased from is 4+ hours away, but there is another on 1.5 hours away. Long drive if it turns out to be something I can do myself. What about risk of voiding the warranty ?

Sounds like the dealer forgot to unlock your ecu. That manual method of draining the battery seems a little sketchy to me, a pain I know, but I’d probably have to take it back to the dealer.

Oh, and welcome!!

She got a day of rest today. That's only because front end is torn apart for goodies being added. So far have KTM rally pegs, KTM skid plate, Solobox panniers, Cyclops headlight upgrade, Cycra Probend CRM handguards, tank bag, Garmin GPS, Ram Mount for phone. Almost done with her for now, but I'm sure I will get a need for some other extras!

Fitted a rear brake master cylinder guard and another CNC type for the clutch slave both came from China for the princely sum of $33 del. Fitted perfect and will do the job.
