Just goin' down the list Meat... this thing is getting pretty comprehensive. I wouldn't be surprised if there are a few KTM/LC4 techs that have used it for reference... nor would I be surprised if someone from the KTM service department has taken a look or two.
Information from the field is always useful to a manufacturer.

If you'd a took better care of them... you wouldn't need to replace 'em.

What... you don't like $100 US for two Timken bearings?

Thanks for the feedback creeper, it needs some housecleaning, organization, and a few things added (and maybe some silly stuff removed) but it is getting big... Thanks to everyone for their assistance (and continued help).

My only complaint about the whole thing is (I didn't figure) that by putting this index up I eliminated many of the simple link queries, which eliminated many chances at the usual inane banter among us Maybe I should yank the thing down so we can get back to it?

Any chance to beat corporate KTM's outrageous markups so shouldn't it just be a case of measuring up said bearings and calling one's local bearing suppliers for a "compatible"?

Wasn't suggesting that people register! Just another source of LC4 user data that may be of use to a few people.. Your call!
