690 headlights dont go off
« on: February 02, 2020, 08:59:55 pm »
Hi everyone! I have a 2015 KTM 690 with a Omega 2nd Gen rally kit. We went out for a ride in the mountains today and where after I gave my bike a proper wash. After the wash, I started the bike to let it idle for a while. Since then the bikes headlight wont go off.... Does anyone know what causes this? Can it be the water from the wash? If so, where do I start looking? It is also just the bottom light which stays on. Which is even stranger....

disconnect the battery and let the electrical dry out , you may have some water in the ignition switch causing this , always take the key out of the switch when washing your bike , thats what the little flappy thing inside the ignition switch is for.
Bikes : 2003 KTM 950 adventure S, 2018 KTM 690 Enduro R , BigBoy Revival 150 for the dorp.

Sun, Wind and Sail and for those colder days, My Bike.
Live for today, because yesterday has gone and tomorrow may never come.

Found this behind my light...

Have you opened it up to have a look?
