available as an accessory in many OBD-motorsport shops (ii) a 6-pin connector (Fig.3).
Typical application for
the sample connector in Fig.3:
* 2006-2009 Yamaha YZF-R6 Secondary Injector harness (main harness side);

Many thanks to Alain for the pictures.There can occasionally be problems with connecting stability to KTM ECU's, e.g. with running engine.
An improvement can be obtained, if you change the parameters for the virtual COM-port.
The following settings are only one example, which have helped many users.
It is possible these settings will not help all users, however; then some other parameters must be changed.
The following settings are made available coutesy of "Tuning Center Otto Leirer" from Austria
Once again a big thanks to Otto.
Link the cable shield with the ground pin of the OBD connector.
See the following picture.
Note: the picture shows the connection on pin 5 for Aprilia, KTM uses pin 4 as ground.
avoid disconnection issues check and fix the following:
Make sure the shield of the USB cable is fixed to the negative of the cable.
See the wire and shield together in the heat shrink in the following picture.
on with some heatshrink around it.
fitted a ferrite choke on the cable as you see here:
bike Tuneecu disconnected as soon as he started the engine, these 2
mods fixed the issue
and now it stays on no problem.
