I might be fitting my ebay bearing later today too - I fitted a KTM replacement earlier this year and it feels like it's developed a bit of play already :( Side by side the ebay part and KTM part look identical.

Here's another possibility - anyone fancy trying a plastic bearing? Part number KGLM-16 from this page: http://www.igus.co.uk/wpck/2493/igub...klager_KGLM_mm

It's not nearly as strong as the metal version ... radial load of 8000 N compared to (allegedly) 90,000 N. That's still equivalent to about 800kg though.

That is still 1/10 th of the OEM strength. I wouldn't like to be too far off. I suppose some engineers designed this for a reason.
Cheers.

Indeed - I might do some calculations to estimate the force through the shock sometime.

I've just had my bike in bits (again) and measured the top shock bearing, for completeness. The dimensions are:

Outer diameter: 25mm
Inner diameter: 15mm
Ball width: 13mm
Shell width: 12mm
