Put a visual nuclear weapon on your KTM 950/990 ADV
The stock 950/990 ADV incandescent headlight doesn’t light up a trail at night well enough for hardcore (or half-blind) riders. External auxiliary lights help, but still leave you with a weak main headlight. Plus, they tend to get misaligned and broken off during aggressive offroading. After the success of our ErzBURGER retrofit for the 950SE, we turned to creating an equally badass solution for the ADV.
Enjoy up to 9,500 + 2,450 lumens utilizing 6 LEDs
The ADVocator lets you retrofit the ultra-penetrating BajaDesigns’ XL80 dimmable 4-bulb LED unit plus an S2 Pro light pack right into the OEM headlamp housing (both EU and US models). BajaDesigns truly makes the best, most compact, plug & play lighting package available.
The killer fix for hardcore 950/990 ADV offroaders
This light solution is rated for offroad use only but the addition of the dimming/dipping mechanism, while not DOT-compliant, will keep you seeing well and well seen, without searing the corneas out of the heads of oncoming riders.
- XL80 with 9500 lumens and 80W for low and high beam. Dimmable to 20% for low beam using factory original handlebar switches.
- S2 Pro with 2450 lumens and 24W operating as the marker light. The S2 alone is more powerful than that stock light by at least twice!
- Compatible with KTM Euro switch that allows turning off the lights individually.
- Fits perfectly inside the factory headlight housing, maintaining the uniform
factory look and keeping the lights protected behind the original lens.
- Minimal modification to the factory headlight wiring harness needed but easy to DIY.
- Fully adjustable using the stock headlight adjustment screw.
DIY Kit - What's involved
This is a DIY kit that is used to convert your factory headlight. We send you all the hardware, the LED lights, brackets, wiring harness and instructions. You need to remove the lens from the housing of your bike's headlight, and enlarge two holes in the back of the plastic housing to install the kit. The lens does not need to be glued back in place allowing you to access the lights for cleaning as required. Some hardware from the factory headlight is reused in this kit.
The headlight harness is reused with small modification for the marker light plug that is explained in the manual. Basiclly you need to cut the wirings going to the small marker light and crimp a connected to them (included in the kit). We can include a new plug-and-play harness if you don't want to modify yours for additional cost.
How would the lights work with the handlebar switch
The larger light (XL80) is used for the high and low beam. When the low beam is on, the XL80 will operates at 20% dimmed level. The dimming level can be adjusted if you use a different harness with a programmable dimmer that is available separately. We find the 20% dimming spot on perfect.
The smaller light up top (S2 Pro) is connected to your marker light wiring. It is always on in the US model bikes. On the bikes with EU handle bar switch, you have more control on the lights that allows you to turn off the S2 and the XL80. The EU switch is fully compatible with this kit and can be added to all other models.
EU/ US/ AU model headlights
This kit can be fitted to both EU and US model headlight housings.
The LED lights use 80 + 24 = 104 watts. In comparison the 990/950 Adventure EU models headlight on high beam uses 55 + 55 + 5 = 115 watts.
We have tested the headlight vigorously on long distance rides, aggressive trails and dusty conditions.
Compatible with all KTM 990 and 950 Adventure models models 2003 to 2013.
All 990 SuperDuke and SuperDuke R models that use the Adventure headlight.
