I don't think so, where did you read that? It rather has to do with WP moving it's entire production from Holland into a completely new factory next to KTM in Mattighofen around that time. New machines, tighter QC, revised designs, etc all make for better quality parts, not just the quality of the chrome but all over.

Hi Prutser,

Do you happen to have a drawing that shows the dimensions of the left axle clamp (where the caliper bolts to) more clearly? That would be very helpful for me...

Currently going RTW on a KTM 690 Rally, trip blog:
