mapping switch

I have the 10 position mapping switch fitted (3 settings). This is a bit of a fiddle to use so I was thinking of installing the trailtech thumb operated version.

My question is do you need to turn the bike off inbetween for the different maps to take effect ? There seems little point in fitting the new switch if you do

Re: mapping switch

Yes you do have to shut it down to change the map setting.

Re: mapping switch

I have been looking at ordering the trail tech map switch but some sites say they are for the 2010 and 2011 others say they are for the 09,10,and11. Same part #. I have the 09 570 and just want to make sure it will work for the 2009.
Thanks for any info.

Re: mapping switch

As far as I know they're all the same, if I was in the market for a map switch again I'd go the 70 degree racing unit. I totally agree the stock one is just too fiddly.

Re: mapping switch

So i sent an E-mail to trail tech asking which part number would be the proper switch for the 09 570. The response i got was that they do not make one for the 09. Why the heck not?!? How different could they be from 2009 to 2010?

Re: mapping switch

They are the exact same switch. Even the Berg OEM switch is the same part number for all the years...

Re: mapping switch

So the sales girl(Chandra) is wrong? I E-mailed her again to clarify and her response said" the 2010 will not work with the 2009 as the harnesses are completely different along with the electrical systems". Thanks for the photo davo. I will compare to my harness. What switches are other 09 570 guys on here running and do you like what you have? For around 100 bucks are they worth the money or is stock good enough? I love my berg but with around 100 hours now i want to get every option out of her i can.

Re: mapping switch

I built my own. I didn't want to spend $70 on one of the nice ones. There are instructions on how to make them on this site - do a search.

The first two switches I used broke, so I bought a handlebar switch from SicAss Racing. It is very similar to the 70 Degree switch and the Trail Tech switch.

Personally, I think the KTM switch is total junk. It is way too hard to use on the trail. And if you have poor eyesight, you can't read the little numbers. I have read many good reviews about the 70 Degree switch. I would imagine the Trail Tech is also good. So either build your own, or pay the bucks for one that you can use.

Re: mapping switch

Being in Canada the options are limited. Trail tech wants 79 dollars for the switch but insist on fed ex for shipping to Canada at 60 dollars more!(bullshit) 70 degree is simillar cost with very crap web site. I can get a trail tech sourced in Canada but have stalled because of the 09 compatability concerns. Need to know for sure before i drop 100 bucks on a might work/ might not work unit. I hear you on the stock unit. Buddy has one and it looks like a pain. Are riders on here using the switches often or not worth the money?
