Nice detective work, and thanks for the write-up.

Just this week I was talking to an experienced m/c technician about it, and his comment was that the nice thing about KTM is occasionally the engineers win over the accountants, and you get good components like that angular contact bearing - despite the expense.

dwayne, I think I'd rather have the KTM parts book in my hand, with the occasional error, than not.
