Anyone know the SKF 990 bearing part numbers

Decided to do a fall replacement of my 990 wheel and steering head bearings, but don't want to pay the crazy KTM prices. Did the Google search thing and found the steering head number (I think - L45449/410/Q), but can't find the wheel bearing part numbers.
Anyone have these handy?
Thanks in advance

Bearing sizes are in the parts manual/ Munn microfische.

e.g. front wheel bearing

0625069068 GR.BALL BEAR.6906 DDU2CG23S6NM

so that's a 6906 bearing size with double rubber seals

Yikes - I guess I'm bearing dolt

Peanuts - I can't seem to get any useful hits when I input the numbers from the parts fiche to the SKF site.

And Keener, I had found those numbers, but the first (shorter) one yields no part on the SKF site - and why are there two, when the parts fiche show two identical bearings (TAPERED ROLLER BEARING CPL. 06 54201081100).

I thought I would use SKF because there is an outlet close by and they are a known quality - only want to do this once.

Sorry to be stupid - never done bearings before. Hope y'all don't mind talking to me like a ten year old

NTN bearings. You call up Canadian bearings, pay on the phone and pick up locally from SKF or NTN

Thanks for the replies. I went to the nearest bearing supply place and got myself a bit sorted out by a very helpful guy at Motion Canada. You probably already know all this but I'll share anyway.
Quality - SKF, Timken, NTN are interchangeable quality wise, all others less so.

He quoted me most cost effective quality replacements, and I've put together a little table combined with OEM prices, and what appears to be the best buy (here in Canada anyway)
Best deal so far - in green.

Buying from British ebay is kind of a pain from here - but I'll continue to check some prices. The bearing supply guy told me Chinese bearings are much cheaper, but quality is variable.

The ebay bearing will be Chinese rubbish, I put the link up so you could see the dimensions and alternative bearing numbers.

I have trade accounts at bearing factors but buy my bearings from the local KTM dealer with 15% discount.

If the bearings have gone it's best to fit new seals and spacers otherwise dirt will get straight into the new bearings.

I see, thanks.
None of the bearings have shown any signs of failure at 60,000 km - I'm replacing because I'll be away for 3 months and don't want "surprises".
I was planning to replace the seals - OEM are pretty cheap.
(no KTM discounts for the likes of me )

People who have RAD hubs (Woody's, etc.) be careful as the rear bearings are not the same numbers as stock and in facts, there are 3 in the rear hub.

I can post the PN if people wants them, I just don't have the number on hand right now.

OEM steering head comes cone and cup as one part number, after market come separate and have a part number for each. I was cautioned not to mix brands between cone and cup - not sure why you would, but good to know.
Hub bearing is in the rear wheel cush hub/sprocket assembly. By reports a very low wear bearing set - I don't plan to replace them this time.
Hope that helps
(thanks for the filters )

Thanks for clarifying thatthe head bearings.

The rear wheel bearings X 2 and the hub bearings X 2 ! I am impressed there are 4 bearings at the rear wheel.
Cheers.

Some OEM parts can be had for much less:

To the OP, have you looked at "Cheap Cycle Parts", aka: cheapcycleparts.com?

Most or all of the bearings that you list are much cheaper for the OEM parts there. Example: Rear sprocket carrier bearings are $12.99 each and you show $47.18 for two. In addition, the full hub rebuild kits including bearings, seals and all bushings are reasonably priced IMHO so that I can have a set of those seals and spacers in my parts drawer.

As a qualifier, I am looking at the prices quoted on their fiche order form for the 2008 Black Adventure, which is what I am buying bearings for.

(and they do ship to Canada!)
