    2100 (mostly dirt) miles later.

    Yes the rear is a bit squared off due to the last day: 700 tarmac miles.

    Front looks great:

    FWIW: I had two days of almost entirely dirt and I ran 16-17psi rear; 18-19psi front, the traction was really spectacular (wet, loose, rocky conditions). I then went up to 24-25 rear; 25-26 front for a couple days of slightly faster conditions and a bit more tarmac, traction was still fantastic.

    Thanks for sharing, I'd say a very respectable performance considering all of that tarmac. My soon to be baked 908 rear is much more worn than yours, and I'm only 1200 miles into it. I will be ordering up a new rear MotoZ tomorrow!

    Oh yeah... way better lasting. Not as good on tarmac though.

    Finally re-united with my 2010 950SE in Santiago de Chile after a few months. Inmate Goti kindly ran me up to the shop on his 990 with a bag of farkles on my back.

    Goti tries the SE for size

    After a check-over and fitting a few farkles made by Inmates from around the globe we're ready for a first ride.

    Very nice bike and cool pictures of Chile.

    As a side note, I believe your bike is a 2009 Erzberg edition, I have the same. The SE production years were 2006-2009. I would bet your bike has a january 2008 manufacture date listed on the sticker found on the left side of the frame (near mid-bike).

    Whatever the year may be, your bike looks very fresh. You will love it!

    Yes on all counts! You do know your stuff on the SE!

    It's in a reasonable state. Good enough to ride straight out of the shop but I want to go through it in detail, PM on seals/bearings, fit aux socket, do the valves/forks/plugs/WPump/calipers/Oberon/clutch & ign rotor bolts/wheel brgs....oh shit!!! that means taking it all apart and starting again :rofl

    Hopefully get enough done today/tomorrow so I can go out playing with the local ADV'rs this weekend...and that means it will need a wash on Monday!

    It looks like it, yes. But, there's an easier way to check - there should be a sticker with the serial number on the top triple clamp. Mine is 41 (of 100).

    I think SE production years was only 2006 (and possibly 2007). The 09 erzberg edition is just decals.

    In New Zealand to the first new owner that included a "free" set of Akras too, but the Erzberg was priced higher as a limited edition so same same really.

    Negative on the single production run. There were at least two. My 2009 erzberg was manufactured in January of 2008.
    (you know my info source :wink:)

    You are correct about the decals. I found the standard super enduro stickers still in place, KTM just stuck the new erzberg stickers on top of the originals.

    Some of the first super enduros had different switches on the handlebars than did the later models, IIRC.

    There are a few more bits than just decals.

    Outside of the US, we got a set of Akras (aswell as the standard exhausts being included)

    Everywhere got a carbon engine cover, billet clutch cover, orange anodized clutch resevoir cover, hand guards, adjustable pegs, and the all important sticker on the triple clamps displaying your serial number :deal

    Some appear to have black (plastic?) grab rails, and also some came with an extra set of Talon wheels (the standard dirtstars being without knobblies). Mine has standard silver grab rails, and the extra set of wheels

    Ah! That explains all those extras you mentioned. I'd thought it was the PO added them. Mind you he did add a Scotts top clamp and damper so it appears I have no all important serial number:cry

    You did alright getting a set of Talons as well! So are you saying 100 went to UK in this trim? Surely there's more than 100 Erzbergs world wide?

    most recent number quoted by KTM was 3000 worldwide.
