Not sure...I have tried to find a photo of what it looks like but have not yet found one. Perhaps I'll go take a photo of it tonight and post it. The bike is an '06 that I purchased new about 4 weeks ago.

If you are only exchanging the sprocket then I would expect you to be able to reuse the bolt/spring washer combo (w/loctite) for a spell, but I have no idea about the tabbed washer.
I'm just replacing the 16t sprocket with a 15t sprocket. :)

I found a few about loctite...but I'll go and check the index again.

The biggest challenge for me is that I live in NYC. It's a bit hard to pull all that stuff apart in the basement of the garage I'm in. :(

Plus...doesn't KTM void your warranty if you do this stuff yourself during the warranty period? I thought I read something about that in my manual.
