KTM SDGT Lean Angle Lights to Running Lights


An engineer has developed an electrical connection/ set-up to turn the 2016> KTM SDGT Lean Angle Lights TO Running Lights. Cost is $156 Euros to USA. POC is Marcel Reinhardt ( reiniheini@gmx.de ). Yes, Marcel said I could use his name & E-Mail in case someone was interested in purchasing this kit. Yes, I have a kit on order. No, you do not have to remove the tank to install. Electrical connections are made to the ACC lines under the intrument cluster. Plug & Play if you want to turn KTM SDGT Lean Angle Lights to Running Lights. Optional adjustment dimming with DRL off for night riding included??

Just what I need as I was concerned about my visibility due to my tinted headlight cover but liked the look.
How long did they take to fit and where do you hide the cables?.
What’s the waiting time going to order ASAP so thanks for the share.
I never ride in the dark so the cornering light where just a gimmick to me.
Thanks

Guy only makes these sets only a few times a year so, be patient. Antispate you will have to pay in advance & mine took 5 months to arrive.

Install is quick & easy.

Constantly illuminated cornering lights are fanastic especially at night.

Best,

Doc :D :D

Thanks for the heads up.

I think constant running lights (not headlights) are illegal here in NZ, and would probably fail a WOF.

It's a clever system, ideal for Euro conditions (often damp, low visibility, soft twilight etc) where every little bit of lighting helps a rider stay alive ...... but I'd also look at some of the more powerful H4 super bright bulbs (LED conversion lamps may not fit the focal length of the H4 specific reflector lens and blind oncoming drivers with a scattered/patchy light spread).

The wait time is a bit tenuous. The northern hemisphere guys can order before their winter, and get them by the next riding season..... we would go nuts waiting as we ride all year round :lol: .

Dave why would you have to wait is it not just a loom he sends? Or do you have to send parts off our bikes for him to adapt?
Sent him an email on Sunday and haven’t heard back so maybe he’s not doing it anymore.

I think he makes up a batch of looms after receiving enough orders.....hence the wait time. However, I'm not likely to order one anyway as it's works out pretty expensive for me in AUD, but it is clever the way it it works, so you never know.......

The manufacturer must have gone on that cruise if he hasn't replied to your email - hopefully he stays clear of any corona virus carriers ;) .

Heard nothing from Marcel so now considering fitting some Denali drl lights does anybody know if there are any spare connections to wire them to?
I know on the smt they had some spare live and switched spade connectors in the front section of the frame as I wired my heated grips to them on the smt.
It would be handy if we had these on the gt does anybody know?
I see Gary club has additional spot lamps do you know where these where wired to.
Thanks

Marcel can take bit of time to communicate. Just be patient...

I use CLEAWATER LED’s ( https://www.clearwaterlights.com ). Great Running Lights. Very reliable product & company. Highly Recommend. Used a PDM 60 for all may electrical devices (gps, radar detector, etc.) - ( https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/row ... ion-module ).

Best,

Doc :D :D

Cheers pk1,

I'm no expert on this, but there are spare connectors under the GT's dash (behind the accessory socket) and more hiding under the rear seat, tucked down under the wiring loom (4 with clear covers). Maybe they are what you are looking for.

Cheers I’ll have a look for them Dave . Well Marcel replied to my email he was on vacation but his schedule is to busy to do it this spring? Oh well back to my other idea of the additional drl lights.
Was thinking of mounting flat ones on the forks.
Thanks for the replies guys.

Could you possibly supply a picture. Coming off my 2015 1190 Adventure I had great after market lights two sets. But on my new 2020 Super Duke GT it's going to be more of a challenge.

Do you want a picture of my lights or the PDM 60 under the pillion seat?? Here is a picture of the lights. The front fender lights are from Clearwater. The upper portion of the turn signal lights stay on all the time with the turn signal mod.

There is new product coming out from Denali that allows additional lights, horn, etc on the KTM SDGT and supposedly does not interfere with the can-bus: https://denalielectronics.com/pages/ktm ... controller .

Best,

Doc :) :)

The lights. Picked up a 2020 SDGT and exploring ways to add running lights like those on your bike. That's exactly what I'm looking for. Any details on lights and mounting bracket would be very helpful thanks the bike looks great.

Here is link to the Clearwater Darla LED lights on my 2017 KTM SDGT: https://www.clearwaterlights.com/produc ... super-duke . The bracket is their D15B. I put the rheostat on the left handlebar (https://www.ktmforums.com/threads/so-iv ... ost-975810 ). Best,

Doc :) :)
