Very nice. The trick of leaving the bearing retainer on is a good idea too - that's how KTM says your supposed to do it if you're pressing the bearing in from the other side (obviously, with the cases split).

Got it out! I must be one of the lucky "easy" ones..

Well, I'm usually all excited about getting INTO things, but I just managed to get OUT of something, or rather I just got my older (perhaps or perhaps not) ready to fail tranny main shaft bearing out.

To bad I didn't have the foresight to actually have the replacement bearing at hand! But you have to admit, getting the original bearing out is the real challenge here..

Thanks VERY much to everyone who contributed advice via this thread! Absolutely INVALUABLE!

Rock on!

Very nice. What says you about me riding my bike up and having you fix it


Great pix. I'm probably going to do my bearing prety soon.

Well, the advantage there would be the motor would be good and hot! I would have taken that step, but the forks are up at moto-pro suspension up Seattle way..

I can believe some folks have trouble, but it would seem that if the motor was hot and some freeze spray was handy, this can't be too difficult for anyone.

Want me to send you my "hooks"? ;-) I'm sure not going to be doing this again anytime soon!

I got around to doing this mod finally. Everything went great. I did it Fri. night and was done in about 3.5 hrs. My bike has 21,150 miles on it and the bearing that was in there still looked great. Oh well, now I know it will be fine for a long time to come. Everything looked very nice inside except the clutch, I will be replacing that soon. It feels good yet, but some of the plates have turned purple.

Zigman came over Sat. morning and we pulled his bearing out also, a 2000 640 Adv w/ about 800 miles on it (very nice clean, bike), why not we had the puller? That one went great also, done in about 2.5 hours. I'm getting good at this.

BTW, No heat was used and I did have the bearing in the freezer for 24 hrs. Can't say that it really helped, but it couldn't hurt. Good Luck everyone.

Thanks Advrider members and Markjenn for the great write up.

Instructions in hand, trivial bearing pull on my 02 w/9500mi. Took a few hours mainly because of the Bee double E double Are You En.

Thanks, markjenn.

Bearing ID Numbers

As I am about to rebuild 2 of these suckers, 660 and 640 Adv R , I have been pricing a complete set of bearings twice

I have located the Crank bearings via a SKF reseller and have saved about $240.00 on the 2 sets. Exactly the same bearing . . . NJ207 ECP C3

Question is, deos anyone have the bearing sizes for the Roller bearing?
I have asked for the BC1-0076A but it appears to be a KTM bearing number.

Any assistance would be appreciated

Pezz :)

Bumpage indeed.

Well, my '01 Duke II started making a squeaking noise from the clutch recently, at about 7K miles. Tried to ignore it, but when I started feeling vibration in the left peg, I parked it. Finally pulled the clutch cover off today, and found a huge amount of slop at the end of the mainshaft.

Looks like I'm off to order a new bearing. Damn.

Thanks for the great thread tho! At least I know what I'm getting into.

Posted this also on Ktmtalk.

Okay, just got the bearing and since I don't have the tool yet I'm going to make one.

Big question: I haven't found any agreement in my search of this or the Ktmtalk thread as to the order of assembly for the bearing. Is it: inner race, then bearing, then the washer or the other way around?

Thanks.

It's discussed in the instructions. My take is that it doesn't matter mechanically, but if you do washer first, you have the ability to pull the race from the outside in the future which might be a big help if you ever (heaven forbid) have to do the repair again.

Just make sure you double-check (no triple-check and have you wive/GF check too) that you have that washer on the shaft before you start driving the bearing. Man, that would be a total bummer to drive the bearing in there and see the washer laying on one's workbench.
