It's not necessary but it sure does make it simple.

I just used a socket. Seemed simple enough to me. Make sure you remove the joint while the swing arm is attached or you will lose the (locally unobtainium) needle bearings on the other end. DAMHIK.

Mike's Cycle Supply FTW. I'm about 2 miles from his shop.


I order a lot of stuff from KTM World too.

I had a husaberg 600 back in 96. i bought this trick little fuel tank that sat next to the shock and i got it from a shop called Eric's. Has to be the same dude, right? It might have been pre internet for me so I must have found his shop in Cycle News? sounds like he had a good run.

I called KTM Cycle Hutt and they still don't have all the parts and this is 2 weeks after I put my order in.
so I cancelled my order.

Ahh, good to see the thread's still here and hasn't been moved to Old's Cool yet.

I'm planning on getting back to my 570 in Cambodia in a couple of months and I just dug out the email I sent to myself when I left.... to remind me what parts to take back.

Ugh. Its a long list.... rotors, pads, bearings, seals, sprockets, chain, repair kits for clutch master and slave, O-rings, etc, etc.

Oh well, it did a long hard 5,000 km of mud. Time to treat it.

Is the 525 always so noisy? It sounds horrible when cold!

Has any of you guys had problems with the 15t being to big and chowing the swing arm rubber?
