the ktm already comes with 2 built in timing curves. the switch just allows you to switch between the two of them at the push of a button, othewise you have to take the hood off and unplug a switch.

My ? Is how do you know with mode your in, say you buddy rides your machine and hits the button a few times you get your machine back not knowing how many times he may have hit the button, how do you know which mode its in?

The switch only has two settings, in or out. There is an illustration on the top of the switch showing on/off with the position of button in each mode.

i put a vortex rocker switch on mine and it has a red h on hot mode side i think that would be easier to see while racing than if the button is in or out

What is the reason of that?
I have never needed to switch that, just have it in performance all the time.

But I dont understand why you would want it in "normal" mode? :)
One eases down the power delivery and the other makes it more explosive. Not always the performance mode is the best. It depends on the traction conditions.
But i want to know, just for the sake of it...

Yep i know that, it's all in your thumb. But if KTM gives you a chance to change the maps, i want to know if it's safe to change while running.
