SXC wheel bearings

Aw right now, I`ve been looking through this thread and need some advice on wheel bearings for my `03 SXC. I figure once I remove the bearings I`ll be able to find replacement bearings locally. What about the spacers? Is there a better solution than ordering the OE spacers from Munn etc.? What do you all recommend?

When I was preparing my trip in Mongolia, I asked to my KTM dealer what are the spare parts he would recomande me to take.
His answer had no hesitation at all : wheel bearing, and only wheel bearing.
His explanation is that the size is not standard al all and it's almost impossible to find them out of KTM dealers...

Okay, I`ve been checking out the Stenhouse bearings and thats likely what I`m going to go with. Any advice on the seals and bushings? My friends that have enduros get bearing "kits" from Pivot Works but I wasn`t sure what would work as they don`t list any LC4 kits, just 525 and 530. My bushings have a nice groove worn in them so I would like to do it all at once. This bike only has 3,000 miles on it but its previous owner obviously didn`t take good care of it, I`ve already had the cases split because the kick start gears had broken off little by little sending tiny pieces throughout the motor. I think it just got ridden and not maintained because he had another primary bike. I`ve done the motor, the forks and the drivetrain so after these wheel bearings it will be damn near new.

Foot controls

What would happen if I drop the shift lever for a tooth or two on the shaft?
Also, did anybody modify the rear brake lever in a way to make it longer and lower?

My problem is that I have limited ankle movement on both feet because of sports injuries.
When riding, after some time, it takes a real effort to pull my foot and toes upwards to shift a gear up or to hit the rear brake...the brake mod seems easy to do, but what happens if I drop the shift lever.
Would the free play to the first gear get smaller?

Thanks!
M.

I see no problem moving it down. The splines run full round on the shaft. The only issue I could see is if you moved the shifter up and it interfered with the case, hindering an up-shift.

Sommer (I think, or maybe Touratech) used to make a new tip for the brake pedal that made it stick out more (i.e. wider), but I think those dried up. The post 2004 LC4's had the different "folding tip" style pedal end. Nothing new on that style either that I know of.

So, for the shift lever you think if I move it for a spline or two, the space towards the first gear is not going to be insufficient.....I'll try....

About the rear brake lever...I was thinking about just welding a piece of metal on the pedal end so I could move it forward and screw it in with two bolts...

Wasn't able to slip the shift lever to make it lower, the peg holder extension (towards the frame) gets in the way and disables shifting into first gear....just so you know...

About the rear brake lever, I decided to weld a piece of metal onto the pad, that is going to enable me to push it forward and add a second bolt to fix it in place...

minor update

I went through 15 pages of subscriptions (since last update) to look for "How-Tos" that should be in the index - and there were two of 'em. When I get a chance I will be going thru those 15 pages for other threads to index and spraying them about the three parts.

Thank you for your patience.

When on the first page of this thread, hit the Ctrl and F keys simultaineously. This will call up your browser's page search function. enter "carbon" and you will go to the section that has the CF tank protection threads.
