I've used the track tape and it does look much nicer than any tape. Be careful as it's not as playable as you think and can tear easily. That's was my only complaint with it. It would be better if it was more stretchy.
Thanks Flo, I'll hit it lightly with the heat gun before I install them. I got the bike up to the track to Barry to baseline the suspension. He softened it up a bit. Once I switch to raceglass he said we'll soften it up even more as we lose some weight. Damned wet weekend.





Thanks from flobrandx and JonT

More progress tonight.

I stripped of the fairings to replace the CF windscreen with the clear one.










I dropped the headlight to unplug the marker light and high and low beam lights. While I was there I removed the huge, bulky and heavy horn and its hardware.

Remember; if you have LED headlights you'll need the plug from the racing electrical connectors kit to prevent warning lights on the dash.










I finished up by bolting the headlight back up and using my stash of KTM Racing zip ties to tidy up the wiring.

Warning: do not turn on the key while the IMU is not mounted properly in its holder.









That's all for tonight. Back to the racetrack Sunday morning.
Thanks from youngR and mrjetpacks

Are you keeping your stock fairings and lights on for the track @Twistedracer?

The trak tape is already cut into templates, from what I see...for specific locations on the Panigale, I presume? NiiicCe.

Yes they're already cut for the head and brake lights. Hopefully have some time to install them tonight after I get back from the track.

Trak Tape

I just installed the Trak Tape. I used a heat gun to help follow the contours. So far my only gripe with it is it needs to be stickier. Guess we'll find out how it stays out over a few trackdays this season.

Otherwise I don't mind using Duct Tape. Goo cleans of easily with 3M adhesive remover.

Why not remove altogether? You should buy race glass for this thing!
