So will wander over to the engineering place in the morning and see if he can get me a new bearing.
Failing that its 18 miles to Tonasket or further on to Omak.
6205 is a very common bearing and shouldn't be hard to find... That bearing is used in snowmobile track rollers so any place that services snow machines should have them... Princess Auto also has them but the nearest to you would probably be Kelowna... It's too bad you didn't notice it sooner as I carry one spare 6205 in my on board tools along with a spare front bearing...

Hope you get the back on the road ok

The pics and stories are fantastic a Hodgo, I've been watching your spot, that Canada stuff is amazing and something I'd love to do some time.

Pack the bearing with some Vegimite. Then again, you'll have nothing left to help you start the day after a big night...

Hodgo. diverdown here in Kamloops. don,t go further south, those to places you mentioned are small towns and doubt they would have your parts, besides I think it is there long weekend there. try Lordco part store or call me and I can go to the KTM dealer here in Kamloops and either ship it on the buss or ride it down. my cell number is on my card I gave to you. diverdown the KLR Hack rider

Chris & Wyatt mentioned Glacier & Road to the Sun in one sentence & that seemed to stick in my mind. Plus i live near the coast in Oz & it is an island so i figured what the heck.

I was kinda considering the Calgary Stampeed too but thought better of crossing the border again.
