Hi Deville 56,
Check out this video to fix these speedo buttons
Good idea, but replaced the cover. There was another video, fixing with black gasket maker. Bought gasket maker for that, but never got time to try.

January 2021 - New Speedometer Cover

Been following MySpare Market on both Facebook and Instagram for some time, but was skeptical about purchasing from an unknown seller, but when he listed this part, couldn't resist and straightaway ordered with some other parts. Dealing was neat, sent message confirming availability and price, transferred money, shipped same day, received intact. He offered new, refurbished, and used parts for KTMs and other brands, with discount and free shipping.

Now coming to the part, some rubber parts of the KTM are crappiest. The speedometer shell is mostly covered with rubber and the switch part disintegrates in no time. Mine was the second cover scavenged from another speedometer. Shell was not available as child part and new speedometer assembly costs 8 to 10 grands. Similarly, the indicators also falls off without any impact over time.

KTM Refurbished Meter Shell - ₹ 850.00
(Listed both new and refurbished shell, but I never understood the difference. Item received was unused)

Flip the headlight and disconnect the meter to remove.

2021-01-03 16-33-26.jpg


Old disintegrated shell.

Old vs new shell.

Screw holes look virgin.

Compared to marks from old one.

Meter minus cover.

January 2021 - Husqvarna Indicators

Another part bought from MySpareMarket along with the meter cover. He usually lists original KTM type 1 and 2 as well as their replicas at discounted price, but one day these popped up and ordered a pair as the listed price was cheaper than stock indicators, got a pair for ₹ 800.00 at free shipping.

2020-12-26 14-31-58.jpg


Made by Varroc, part number JU401016. KTM ones were Rinder make, which suffered quality issue on long run.

2020-12-26 14-44-52.jpg


SMD Leds look prominent unlike the diffused look of stock ones.

2021-01-03 11-58-40.jpg


Same connector and mount, 100% plug and play.

Issue with stock ones, rubber quality poor and falls off on its own and resistant to superglue.

Installation. Got to remove the underside panel, 8 bolts and 4 screws.

Just undo the nuts and disconnect and pull out the wires.

2021-01-03 12-06-53.jpg


Inside the sleeve of the wire is some protection circuit, which makes it a bit tricky to pull out, which is not present in the Husky unit.

2018-03-19 20-49-19.JPG


Stock vs Husky.

Husky off.

2021-01-03 14-45-53.jpg


Husky on. Bright enough.

2021-01-03 14-45-56.jpg


Replaced the broken front one using undamaged rear LH unit.

2021-01-03 16-33-19.jpg


Cracking issue. Both indicators broke at the same point in same pattern. Similar was the quality of the speedometer case rubbers. These were inert to FewiKwik and no way was sticking together, managed to fix with prolonged exposure of glue after removing.

2021-01-03 16-59-42.jpg


Fixed. Contacted him for another pair, but sadly whole stock sold out. No chance of restock in the near future.

2021-01-03 17-23-02.jpg

The outcome.

January 2021 - Finally Gets Back Original Cover

Wash time.

2021-01-25 11-09-52.jpg


We actually placed order for original KTM bike cover during first service and lost hope after multiple followups. After almost a year, the spare guy rang up, asking to pick'em up. We also ordered a side stand bypass contraption as well, which sadly didn't make it through. It was my engagement round the corner and all of were busy and was left in the cupboard in original packing and completely forgotten.

Two years later, Kinetic was gathering dust and accidentally found the cover and it was doing duty on Kiney since 2017, gathering dust and dirt and grease and whatever.
During lockdown 1.0, Duke and GT was covered with old torn cover of Beat. Was expecting lockdown 2.0 and was checking the covering requirements and felt PowerPig! deserved its original cover.

By this time, the cover had turned brown with all the dirt and black and many places with the greasy parts kept over.

2017-10-27 07-34-28crop.JPG


It was a Herculean task getting it back to its original glory. Dipped in high-concentric Surf Excel solution for hours and did multiple rinses. Except the black spots, its almost cent percent clean. It's a good quality cover with KTM printing in black on both sides and front and reflector stripe on sides.

2021-01-25 16-12-58.jpg


Made by Polco India. Came in exact same orange colour storage pouch, which again got misplaced.

MRP ₹ 800.00. Part number 75324297.

2021-01-25 17-03-34.jpg


Parked with original cover.

February 2021 - Adjustable Brake Lever
The brake lever was bent for some time and the clutch lever had too much play and needed replacement. Had interest in adjustable one from new 390, but no stock at dealer and price was like ₹ 2.2k for a pair, for which price we could buy 2 pairs aftermarket levers. Scrolling through Instagram stories caught eye on MySpareMarket's story of adjustable brake levers at discounted price. Stock lever was ₹ 1,829.00 and this guy was selling for ₹ 799.00 inclusive of shopping, a whopping ₹ 1,030.00 difference. But no clutch lever with him. Ordered right away.

The package.

2021-02-10 12-00-10.jpg
2021-02-10 12-00-30.jpg


Adjustable levers. Part number - 36JY0186.

2021-02-10 12-03-31.jpg
2021-02-10 12-03-43.jpg


5-Step adjustable.

2021-02-10 12-04-02.jpg


Old bent lever.

2021-02-10 21-21-54.jpg


Removing is pretty easy, just the nut and bolt business.

2021-02-14 17-39-00.jpg


Brake plunger.

2021-02-14 17-39-12.jpg


Unconventional brake light switch.

2021-02-14 17-39-41.jpg


Comparison. New one comes with steel shim/insert in the hole, which reduces/eliminates ovalling.

2021-02-14 17-36-25.jpg


New lever in.

2021-02-14 17-33-50.jpg


Setting 1, farthest.

2021-02-14 17-42-28.jpg


Setting 5. Closest. Lever is more than a centimeter closer. Easier for short-fingered guys like me.

2021-02-14 17-43-00.jpg


Setting 1 in action.

2021-02-14 17-42-36.jpg


Setting 5 in action. Will get a psuedo-spongy feel due to the closer travel.

2021-02-14 17-42-43.jpg


These fits most of the Pulsar family like Dominar, 200NS, RS, 220, etc. Now in desperate hunt for adjustable clutch lever.
