    The fuel injection 4 strokes have a similar wiring setup. In fact even a bigger wiring bundle. It's a known area for wiring faults.
    I did the same to my 350 the other day, only to find it was the main fuse by the battery. Face plant! The fuse looked fine to the eye but had a crack only detectable with a meter.

    I now want to see a wiring diagram for that bike to see why that mess is necessary or appropriate.

    The only positive connection is a soldered connection. You can't get around having wiring harness connectors. Thats a given. They seal pretty good though. Unsoldered wire bundles in a wiring harness is just cheap B.S..

    This will legit keep me from buying a TPI until they change the wiring. I was considering selling my 2018 250xc for a 2020 or 2021 tpi, but that just looks like a headache waiting to happen. 5 years from now I bet people are completely redoing the wiring harnesses.

    Does KTM not give wiring diagrams in the service manuals anymore? I bought the "service manual" for my bike and cant find it. Yet if I google I can find older model wiring diagrams with everything I needed to know

    I don't want to misquote anyone, but I do believe someone here confirmed that (new manuals don't have wire diag).
