That was my '11 at 7000km. The engine was quite noisy & once removed the needle bearings were about to fall out!
Ok. MIne aren't that bad. The local KTM shop here in Istanbul is looking for an intake and exhaust rocker for me. From what I can find you cant' only replace the bearing like on the 640. If they don't have the rockers I will re-shim and put her back together to make the 1700km ride to Georgia. From there I will have time to order parts in.
