Yea I did the swing arm gloss black too. Im gonna do my supermoto swing arm soon. I dont know the name of the orange. I had EBR rip me off and they wouldn't tell me the powder coater name. I used EBR because I knew they have a guy that uses to correct KTM color. Ive seen other Powder coaters "KTM"orange but it wasnt even close to the correct orange.

And I know my "orange" that I chose (mostly b/c he had it in stock and didn't want to pay for a whole box of powder myslef) isn't real close and it may not be anywhere near close but I suppose it will work and if not, luckily I only did the carrier in orange so it's easy to change up if needed.

I think I chose the safety orange also but I could be wrong.

So in dropping off my parts yesterday for powder coat, I expected to pick up Tuesday next week, just as he stated he would have done by then. I got a text at 10:30 this morning saying the parts were done, picked them up and I think they look great, I would like to compare my "Bengal Orange" to your orange tonight.

GOOD, I kinda need a rear brake

Strong bikes need strong brakes, the front works very well though.

Did you do everything I suggested to find and eliminate the ghost noise?

I had some trouble with my TKO bike tonight but still had a great time riding, ended up riding someone else' RM250 for a while.

My adjuster block on the left side split, broke off and then axel started coming out of the SA, I called it quits for the day until Coolhaven offered his bike to me to ride.

I'll be back in the morning at 8 or so am to work with Kelly and get in some more seat time on the fixed TKO bike..
