    I know some have reported this solution works, like LukasM, but it definitely didn't for me. If the angle of the races and cups are identical, it'll be fine, but if its only 1 degree out, it will fail. There are details of what I did in my build thread, linked in my signature below. My solution evolved. It started out like yours, failed almost immediately. Then I went to sleeves in the steering head and KTM bearings top and bottom, and after some kms, the above noted solution, with Suzi bottom and KTM top. Good luck, hopefully yours will be OK.

    Greetings from California, USA! I congratulate you on your use of my native tongue, English; I am not bilingual, and so admire others who are. And thank you for the excellent photos of your work as it progresses, we all enjoy seeing "behind the curtain" of our bikes, so to speak (that means, seeing the internals of our motors).

    Sweet! You have done some very nice work! Mud building up is one problem I've seen with the low front fender. Do you have a high fender in reserve somewhere?
