And with seals and a new grease nipple it all comes to 80.

Is any one aware of an aftermarket replacement. I cannot find an All Balls replacement at half the price, but surely KTM used the same bearing on other models.

Also, does it just hammer (sorry I mean Press!) out??


Thanks for your help.

As far as I know that bearing is a KTM special & you just have to get screwed on it if you want one. Not sure on the seals for that one but all the other lower suspension bearings & seals are definitely available at any bearing shop.

A few appropriately sized sockets & a vice makes a nice press for removal/replacement.

If you kinda liked the DR but want something taller an LC4 would definitely be a good pick. In brief:

If you need 500km+ range, or just like the rallye look: Adv

The E is the sweet spot for me. Get one with the 18L tank.

The SXC has an extra inch of suspension which you may appreciate, but no cush hub & a smaller front brake. Small tank obviously. Some have the flat slide FCR carb which is nice vs the CV BST on the E & Adv. Most years of SXC have less oil capacity also.


The XR650L may also be worth considering - pretty basic tech like the DR but taller.

Cheers
Clint
