Being that the weather was still really lousy here, it was not a big deal but if it had been prime riding season... This bearing failure might have cost a additional $12,000 for a KTM 950 to hold me over until the parts came in.
In the end , I am assuming the failure stemmed from the bearing using up all it's lifetime lubricant.
