Peanuts, I didn't change that - this is actually the first I've heard of it, and I've gone through the HOW in great depth. My bike's an 04 950 Adv - is it something I should be worried about?
Yes, the balls come out of the bearing and cause damage to the primary gear, clutch and gearbox.

Well documented on smaller KTM forums, but just as bigger threat to the LC8 engine, hence the factory doing the upgraded part.
