headlight powered by existing wiring


New Member

I had always thought of having headlight for my KTM ecross that doesn't need a separate battery. Actually I found it is relatively easy to do.

1) Super cheap 5v headlamp - 6USD, declared as Hot 3000LM CREE XML T6 LED
2) Pair of connectors - HR30-6J-6P (71) and HR30-6P-6S (71)
3) 5v+ from pin 1 and GND from pin 3
4) small piece of 8-wired cable
5) a bit of drilling and soldering... :)



Happy riding!

Best regards,

Hi Franco, the button by default works in the following sequence - off -> hi-beam -> lo-beam - >blink -> off. If it stays on as you take the console out the whole system switches off after some delay by itself.

I do not recommend to take the power from the 5V CAN Bus, but take the power from the built in DC-Dc converter with the 48V batteries that is able to offere 5,5V to 12V (you have to use the BionX software to modify that) at up to 1,5A.

(-) is the same as (-) of the overall system, (+) is the housing(!) of the SUD-d connector
