Tock it to the track for the first time (both for me and the SE).

Had a great time, hopefully, I will have track tires and not touring tires the next time.

I looks like a great time. What was your rear tire pressure? It looks a bit low in the first photo.

First time out on the track I had 2,4 Bar front, 2,7 Bar rear.

Bridgestone had a rep. there and since I ride on Bridgestone, I asked him for recommendations.
He tock out his pressure gauge and set it to 2,3 Bar front, 2,4 Bar Rear.
Bike handled good (but what do I know) so I keept it like that.

KTM had a big trailer there and one of their suspension wizards did his magic on my suspension settings and Halleluja, 10-15 km/h higher corner speeds, he knew his buisness, thats for sure.

Did you get that touch up paint from KTM or from another source? I've got a fair collection of those scratches at this point. . . not sure if it's worth trying to hide them, new ones are usually only a couple rides away. . .

I replaced all the exhaust seals. 07 SE with about 12,000 miles on the clock. My buddy's bike was running piss poorly for about 9 months. We wrestled with the carbs, thinking that was the problem. Nope. Simple exhaust seal. Replaced it and all the problems were resolved.

It's cheap and easy to do. Even though the seals I removed looked pretty good, the bike seems to have a slight improvement with the new seals.

I got a small pot from the company who carried out the paint job. One of our inmates lives down near the company and he called in and posted it on to me.

I was looking at importing these lights from China, which have you got, the 9W or 27W?

According to the thread they're 24 watt floods. They seem to be very well made and bright as hell.
