Taste is such a strange thing.

KTM says that they don't endorse the 17/17 combo. They are silent (and therefore, I assume, OK with) the 17/19 combo.

I have the latter on my SE and love it.

Thanks for the offer, but I think I'd rather hang on to the ones I have and get an additional set of the 43mm.
