They are universal.

Uhhhh, I think that one went over your head a bit.

You all know I'm talking about the needling bearing in both the intake & exhaust roller rockers! :)

You might consider contacting a KTM dealer in the UK or Australia to get them to send you one? I know that normally that isn't allowed but given the circumstances they might agree to it?

Within two weeks KTM Canada managed to come up with the part for me so I have a new spare. Check the p/n below.

Since you too are in Canada it should be easy to get it to you quick. PM me and we will work it out. Karma, bros!

That's the best news I've had in a long time!

I am forever in your debt sir.

Pm on the way with some details.

I wonder when they upgraded the part and which yr the upgraded part went into.

Long shot i know

That's the old rocker PN, the new one is 75036061144 the fiche you're looking at is obviously out of date.

Hmmm - 3 of the 4 online fiches I have used
show the old P/N...

http://sparepartsfinder.ktm.com/?lang=en&loc=ushttp://

http://partsfinder.onlinemicrofiche....asp?make=ktmdb

http://partsfinder.onlinemicrofiche....d=-VALVE-DRIVE

This one shows the new part superseding the old one:

http://173.74.246.25/elitektm/

So the question then becomes when did they
switch to installing the new P/N ?

Both Surdyke Yamaha & Munn Racing show the new one.
Since the old one showed 08-13, I suggest the upgrade was a recent change. KTM does things mid-stream. Probably 2013 starting at some SN.
I wonder if it is really an upgrade or a change in vendor. Has anybody compared them?

Anybody want to help me get rid of a 12' BMW 650 Sertao and a 2 week old 13' Honda XR650L for a new 690?

That was what I should have bought in the first place.
Now I have two bikes trying to cover one base


I guess the reason why I didn't get one in the first place was the question of reliablity. All of my KTM's (especially my 640A and 525) gave me issues.
How are the new one's holding up?

Don't know when the change took place, I got my new PN rocker back in November though. Of course my OEM one had 27K miles on it when I replaced it and it hadn't failed.
