Re: 2009 R6 Track Bike
I've been practicing my wheelies. Not so good, probably cause I don't want to bend my brand new subframe when I drop it. I have gotten a bit better, but still in first gear. I think I need to start them in second and maybe learn to "clutch-up." Then I'll graduate to the R6 so I can do standup wheelies over the finish line at track days - maybe once before they meatball me.
I enjoyed the nearly total rebuild of the KTM. The KTM rebuild got a lot easier when I discovered the 2007 the PO sold me was actually a 2008. I also had to get a full range of star/torx bits, since that was about the only bolt type on the KTM. Gave me a perspective on how dirt bikes are built today. (My last real dirt bike was a 1971 CZ 360. Had a 4-speed and wouldn't start without about a 1/2 mile tow with a VW. I put a Mikuni carb on it and it became like a Japanese bike.)
The 2008 KTM was the first of a design change, right? Assuming the 2009 shared the same design.
