I have a goal to install a PDM60 on my Super Tenere to control some lighting and accessories. Of course I want to control some of those outputs with some accessory switches. My vision is to find a handlebar mounted switch cluster containing 3 or 4 accessory switches that I can wire to the PDM60 to facilitate further control of the outputs. I've searched and searched, and all I can really find are some chrome, brake/clutch reservoir mounted switch packs that really don't fit the genre, or single switches. Does anybody know of anything that might fit the bill for what I'm trying to do?


Thanks in advance!

What do the crayon heads that are poking through the body do? :D  That looks like an interesting bit. Do you run this?


I've not used them myself, but have seen them other people's bike. Looks like some well made kit, and the only thing I've seen that meets the ops needs.

That is PERFECT, and exactly what I had in mind! Simple, robust, and functional. I'm going to use a red button for my ABS kill, the middle button for my driving lights, and the third button... for well I don't know yet, but I'll think of somethin. I searched the interwebs for hours and never came across those - great find and thank you.

No problem, glad it was useful. Next wiring project I do, I'll be ordering some.

I've run the switches, as well as a gauntlet of Highway Dirtbike's other products. Great stuff, absolutely bullet proof. Here's my current dash setup on my DR650. Excuse the dirt, it gets used.




Just added one of their top clamps/hand guard set ups to my 1190 with two switches and a powerlet outlet. I'll get some pics one of these days.

      NEW KTM Throttle Control Outperforms the Rest
      Another innovative design from the folks at Black Dog Cycle Works (BDCW)

      Sandpoint, ID, October 29, 2014 -- Black Dog Cycle Works' new Throttle Control was created to save riders from wrist cramping and fatigue on long pavement hauls between their off-road adventures. Further, "We designed our Throttle Control to be extremely rugged and user-friendly so it'll hold up to the heavy pounding and battering KTM adventure bikes endure," says Kurt Forgét of BDCW.

      Early product testers claim that the BDCW Throttle Control is easy-to-install and out performs all other designs they've used. A unique click on/off feature provides positive feel and positioning-taking the guesswork out of setting the proper drag. The design allows the rider to increase/decrease speeds without disengaging the device, as well as easily overridden for emergency situations.

      Riders who experience the often debilitating wrist pain associated with manually holding the throttle open for long periods will appreciate BDCW's new device. And, without having to fight the throttle 100% of the time, extended slab rides will be far more enjoyable.

      Available exclusively from Black Dog Cycle Works.
      Compatible with:

          KTM 1190 Adventure, 990 Adventure, 950 Adventure, 950 Super Enduro and 690 Enduro
          Stock grips and hand guards
          KTM heated grips
          Flexx handlebars
          Plus, MANY other motorcycles with dirt bike style handlebars

        Often one is faced with marketing propaganda that is tough to decipher. One area that there is often confusion or misunderstandings about is lumen ratings on Aftermarket LED Auxiliary lights.
      A lumen rating is the amount of light given off by any particular source, If we are talking about a light bulb, that is a legitimate use for a lumen rating, If we are talking about a complete light with optics, then the term lumen falls very much short of telling the customer any real info.
      Very often in today's market place, we see lights rated at 4400 lumens or even more.Will a 4400 lumen light allow you to see better than a 1000 Lumen light?
      Not necessarily, In fact sometimes quite the opposite, the 1000 lumen light wins. Optics are the key to getting a great quality light beam that will allow a rider to see what they need to, without blinding oncoming drivers and lighting up the tree tops. The real information that a rider needs is a lux rating at a given point, beam pattern selections are also very important.
      Prior to making a lighting decision for your trusty stead, take a look at what lights truly do offer a real optical enhancement that optimizes what lumens are available. In general a single source LED with a large optic will optimize the amount of Raw lumens at hand.  A multi-emitter light may look brighter, but do to the lack of space for quality optics they often can not match the long distance penetration offered by a single emitter design.
      Here is a great example of a quality built light that draws 10 watts of power yet provides more than 800 ft of light throw, 
      The Cyclops Adventure sports Long Range Optimus LED offers Outstanding long range distance as well as a tunable product with the availability of wide beam filters that alter the beam pattern for a Clipped optic (upper Cuttoff) that helps to eliminate oncoming blindness, yet retains much of the long Range Penetration so commonly not found on LED aux lights.
      Note the large optic and single emitter design.
      With the wide angle filter
      LED lighting is a continuously evolving technology, we will all be rewarded with great products from top manufactures and suppliers as time goes on. In this case a little knowledge goes a long ways.

      Chris asked:
      Has anyone installed a Rowe Electronics PDM60? It's a self-contained power distribution module that is similar to a Fuze Block, but it has internal circuits (no fuses, just restart if circuit overloads) and a viewable panel that immediately shows circuit health. Would love to hear from you. I purchased one and am putting together a "clean" circuit strategy for my electronics (powerlet heated gear, ipod charging, phone, etc), so I'm sort of biding my time while I plan it out. Any comments about this would be appreciated.

      I like how Rich mounted these new Clearwater lights on his GSA

      I like them better there than lower where they get crunched in a tip over.  I also like their "can opener" that lets you tap into the can bus as well as take advantage of the existing handle controls/light switch/horn switch.
      They are a bit pricier too than my Rigid D2's but they are pretty cool
