Re: Penny Tech (TM) - KTM AC lighting circuit - cheap DC power

Yep, you are tied into a regulated circuit. For sure the regulator acts as a sink to ground. All good my friends. If ever have a need to dim a led you must use a technique know as PWM( pulse width modulation) and it requires some electronics to work. It also used a lot in the 7.3 power strokes to re...

Re: Penny Tech (TM) - KTM AC lighting circuit - cheap DC power

Nice. You mentioned are hooking into the un-regulated AC directly off the stator. I have a feeling you are tapped into a regulated AC lighting circuit(this is good), I thought the XC's had from factory. Just want to be clear so guys don't have a recti"fire" under the gas tank :crazy:. If y...

Re: KTM Carb Heater Install

Never need heat on a 4t carb. If it's a snow bike maybe that's a different story. Others here have a lot of experience with snowbike setup. Wast of time for single track winter riding above -15c.

Re: 4CS fork revalve question

You can fix the forks for about $200 to $400 if you are handy and depending on your comfort level. In the end you will have a setup that is similar to what Kreft offers, and will perform 80% of what a pro tuner can offer. I will dig up some details tomorrow. The 4cs are really easy to work on.
