G'day. Has someone messed with the standard paint? It doesn't look like mine, although it has silver on it.

The dog is not doing suspension these days, he services old customers.
The dog got into taking pics at caged fighting events and makes money that way now.
Guess he is getting famous?

Think he still makes external tanks.

Go to mx-tech with your problems.
They know WP.
Long time suspension experts.

need help /advise

My '06 has over 27k miles and in need of a nip / tuck, here and there. Starter clutch, water pump rebuilt, etc.
One of the things that I learned about on this invaluable thread was the intake follower bearings, what KTM calls rocker arm roller ( # 58036061090 ) potential for going tits up with this amount of mileage. Well the parts where supposed to be here on the 26th but now they are on backorder and will not be in until 1 August. I have checked KTM World, Munn Racing etc. and all give me the same answer - none in North America. Normally no worries, have others to ride, but the reason for the extensive prep is that I am going on a 30 day trip with this bike, starting the end of July. The follower bearing has a definite "hitch in it's git-a-long" that has me worried, as I do not wish to get stranded in BFE.

So, on to my question - Is there another bikes follower bearing that can be scavenged to work on this one?

Hoping beyond hope

Can't help with ZD, but Nick Dole at Teknik in Sidenee (Penrith) is pretty good with suspension, and a lot closer to home too.

Capital idea, ol' chum, unfortunately, that is also is on back order.

Anyone parting out an engine willing to sell a complete rocker arm intake or rocker arm roller bearing?

Removing rear brake pads

Dumb question, but I can seem to find the answer..I'm replacing the rear brake pads, but can't seem to remove the brake pad pin. It turns pretty easily, but there seems to be a keeper from letting it slide out. Yes, I did remove the cotter pin. Thanks for the help!

Nice photo illustration faken00B, there used to be a guy that used that marking paint like you have on your banjo bolt but he's......no longer with us.

mtbdemon, as faken shows and it may take a few good whacks with a stout hammer. As long a the cotter pin, as you call it, is out it'll come out. May want to put something on the other side of the wheel, that pin may fly a ways when it comes loose.
