    2008 KTM 530 EXC - Installing the electrical lighting kit

    I am trying to rebuild one decent bike from a 2008 and a 2009 KTM 530 EXC. One frame has rego so everything is going in that direction. I have a lighting kit - looks like factory KTM.

    Has anyone done this before? Most of the connections are straight-forward but some are not. I have a manual with a wiring diagram, which has proven very useful.

    As for the horn, indicator flasher relay (where to bolt it) or rear brake light switch connections (I have a short cable from the master cyl but it won't reach the loom - there must be an extra cable for this - I can easily make one - but where to connect it is the question): I can kind of guess where they go, but I wonder, is there a pictorial schematic online somewhere? One that say, has a pic of the front with all the wiring connectors labelled?

    Once I have done, I could make one that is easy for people to see, but in the meantime ... I need one! Also, my bike seems to have two kill switches - one on the left, one on the right bar - is that normal? The speedo works but I can't get it to measure speed yet ...

    Anyone done this already?
