BT 016's ? That's what I am running right now.
I installed them for a trackday back in August, they work great.
it was 96 degrees out that day so warm up wasn't a real problem!

After you ride them hard on the track you can distinctly see where the compound changes are in the tires.
they have a great profile with no big fall in or weird characteristics.
I rode them hard and you have to work pretty hard at it to get a slide going.
tires seemed to stay pretty consistent with no big fall off.

My buddy also ran a set on his F800ST at the same time and he was just as pleased as I was.

I will mount up another set when I wear these out, my new favorite tires.

I can't attest to how well the do in the rain but they do well on the street and track days.

Super Duke PoRN

I pick up my SD-R on March 3rd. Dealer just called to say it has been delivered. I can't wait.

I was on a Speed Triple before so I'm now looking forward to seeing what the KTM can do.

No I was talking about the BT003-RS - street legal track day tire. That's what I thought I saw in the pic. Probably gonna spoon them on in May sometime.

It was, I had one when I lived there a few years ago. Bought it new and blasted all over that rock on it. I used to get stopped frequently by HPD for lane-splitting. Got off with a few warnings. Nothing like going over the Pali highway and coming out the tunnel though. Gorgeous.

I always had to lock that thing with a huge chain and krypto type lock because they steal anything not nailed down there.

But the bike was perfect for Island riding. DRKWING is right, there aren't too many places you can really open it up, so having a liter bike there is a bit of overkill.

Here's a pic from www.superduke.net of a nice anthracite edition. The Carbon Leos look good!

g2

just installed a g2 throttle cam on the 990.first impression is that it does a pretty good job of removing the jerky acceleration problem,how ever the twist from idle to wide open throttle is very long,going down a long straight,the throttle seems to be open quite a bit,then testing to see how much throttle is still left,i found it had quite a bit more before wide open.a quicker turn throttle would be best,but the off idle jerkyness would be a big problem then and yes i do have the 02 sensors removed

Today was the first day in about 2 months I got to ride the Super Duke and I had a great time. Put in about 4 hrs and 190 miles then returned home and gave the bike a bath. I'm still absolutely amazed by this motorcycle. The handling, the motor, the comfort, everything is in perfect balance for fast street riding. There were quite a few other guys on the road today too. In addition to the numerous Harley riders that I always see there was also an assortment of sportbikes including an Aprilia RSV Mille, Buell 1125CR, and would you believe it another KTM Super Duke! This is the first SD I've seen on the road other than my own. The one I saw today was orange and black. Gotta say, it was one good looking bike. Tomorrow the weather men are calling for low 60's and sunny but unfortunately I will be at work. Oh well at least it's good to know Spring is finally on its way.

Nice bike there FlyingScotsman.
I don't think I have ever seen a white one here yet.


Here is a recent picture of mine.
I added the CRG mirrors,Evotech tailtidy and Bikemonkey integrated tailight this winter.

Getting ready for another trackday this next Sunday.
mounting up a set of Michelin Pilot Pure tires this week.

Any idea how that Evotech would work on an SD with Akra evo cans?

Not sure, I do have FMF's and they are a similar shape I think ?
the turn signals were to high and would interfere slightly with my pipes.
I though about getting some smaller turnsignals and I still might.
for now I have a Bikemonkey integrated led taillight/ turnsignal installed.

It works ok for the type of riding I do and it is less to deal with at track days.

Here is a shot from the back if it helps.

You might look around over at superduke.net I am sure somebody over there can answer that question for you.
