Question Wheel Bearing Codes

I can't understand any of the numbers on the parts fiche for my 950 wheel bearings - presumably they are obscure for a reason!
Can someone give me the generic numbers. I've got an SKS supplier just around the corner and they usually cost less than half m/c dealer prices.
Thanks, Paul.

Ok, maybe not obscure at all I'm just easily blinded by lots of numbers and I did mean SKF!
Front: 6906-2RS (30mm x 47mm x 9mm)
Rear: 6205-2RS (25mm x 52mm x 15mm)

If I'm wrong I'd like to know before I order.

Those are (correct) generic numbers. SKF makes them. Your local bearing supply house will likely have a "house brand" that's a lot cheaper than SKF and just as good for this application. Standard clearance, commodity item. Nothing magic. My local supplier sells KBC (Korean).

Sprocket support is 2 bearings (stacked) also. On other KTM cush drives it's sometimes an expensive double-row.

If you're going to all the trouble to replace them, might as well do it right the first time and put in the magic ones.

Look for the "M" suffix on the part numbers.

Just bought two pairs off ebay with these numbers. The rears are $5.88 for the pair.

I'll grant you, they are not what I'd use in under ideal conditions, but for spares to carry on the bike, I'll do it. I'll pack them full of waterproof grease in advance, store them in plastic bags, and break them out for emergencies.

Here's my last wheel bearing experience in somewhere in Utah- lucked out my buddy was just about to leave the KTM dealer 100 miles away- caught him just in time for a parts run.
