As far as i can tell, the bendix is what needs to be replaced, but i hesitate handig over the money for a replacement if it's just going to break again. How KTM managed to screw up a bendox design is beyond me. As far as the cs seal, i dunno. Probably should expect to replace this a lot eh?

That is a common problem. It is usually the oring placed under the steel bushing. Be very careful that there is absolutely no dirt in there when you put a new oring in.
