surface, such as a toolbox, tailgate or axle. There are bigger
and smaller parts dish options from Motion Pro, including a

Attention KTM and
WPS offers a direct-fit
replacement battery for
the stock lithium battery.
It has almost double
the cold cranking amps

a great choice when it
comes time to replace the
stock battery. WPS stands
behind its product, evidenced by
the two-year replacement warranty. The WPS
featherweight lithium battery is available for 2015 KTM

RIDE ENGINEERING BILLET KILL
The billet kill switch replaces the stock unit, with
the bonus of being integrated into the clutch clamp.
By eliminating clutter, it creates more clamping
space for hand guards, lap timers and other handle-bar-mounted accessories. The Ride Engineering kill
switch makes life easier when changing handlebars.
A second switch can be added in place of the stock
start button on many electric-start bikes.
