KTM yokes-fitment

just to say that i've gone to fit some KTM triple clamps tonight and the bottom bearing that came (free) with the yokes fits up in to the frame nicely. however the top bearing is way different to the husey bearing from my '02 machine.

mine is a 25.5mm on a a steel post and what i need is a 29mm i.d. bearing that obviously suits the original outer cup.

for the record the bottom of the post has a 29mm o/d and the top a 29mm o/d also.

CAN I JUST SAY HOW PISSED I AM AT THE LACK OF HELP HERE? people get plenty of help from the site and i can say i gladly give it and give more than my share. but i know that there are about 3 sets of KTM clamps fitted around UHE and my obvious problem could have been avoided if JUST ONE PERSON had put up a thread saying what is involved in doing this mod/change.

i call that pathetic! to you i say phuq ya! whoever you are and several :P :P :P

i take my racing seriously and the lack of support is palpable and the input from some is derisory.

while i'm here i'll also say that the support given directly in building the 'owners doc' up is next to zero.

i think am at the beginning of the end with UHE if this is your best shot.

I'm sorry that I can not help on the clamp fitment. I have asked about them in the past, but never ventured into actual fitment.

I hate to refer you off site, but I have found that KTMTalk.com has a very good support group with some top name tuners in their Suspension section of their board. They have also recently added a Husaberg forum, so the Husaberg specific traffic may pick up.



The good thing about this board is that it is Husaberg specific, and the bad thing about this board is that it is Husaberg specific. ...A lot of the knowledge can be lost due to people moving from brand to brand, and thus not visiting the board anymore.

Hi taffy,
Don't give up yet!

Try this web site, for tapered roller bearings. Check your bearing measurements again though before you go there, maybe you can get a fitup!

You need to check the frame ID where the replacement bearing will fit.

Hey Taffy!
Wow, you sound kind of angry. Too bad you could not go on Bobzilla's ride to relax. I have KTM clamps fitted on my Berg. What I have found to be the best way is to have a new stem machined with the KTM dimensions on the bottom (the press fit area only), and of course the Husaberg dimensions on the top. The second best way is to have a press fit sleeve machined to adapt the Husaberg stem to the KTM clamp, and also one (slotted) for the KTM clamp up top. I went to a bearing house, and the ktm and Husaberg races are not the same. They are close. Probably close enough for government work, but I am confident you will not find the right bearing with seals. That is why I had to stick with the Husaberg spec bearings, if I wanted that assembly sealed. I wasted
a lot of time and money, coming to this conclusion. My pain, your gain.

brendan

you're obviously an intelligent fella but i have to ask how did you get your head trapped up there? (bob stop laughing-i'm being serious here!-i honest)

it's not enough that you're a student and people go out of their way to help you but you also conspire to offer advice AFTER i've done the work? what the hell use is that? shouldn't you be helping fellow bergers with the info when it's fresh in your mind and trying to save them some of the pitfalls and hassles?

i wouldn't want to be your mum. do you ever pick anything up?

so i'd better go check what i can do with this little lot then.

PS brendan-your last joke wasn't so don't try the avator one again.

PPS if i could i'd have your babies

regards

ok these are the bearings

husey

post = 25.5mm
inner race = L44643R
Seal =L44600RRS-1
outer cup = L44610


KTM

post = 29mm
inner race = L45449
seal bottom is a KTM part
seal top is on it's way to me
outer cup = L45410

the OD on the KTM outer cup is the same as the huseys
although the numbers are different at L44610 and L45410, closer inspection shows there to absolutely no difference in them so it's OK to use the husey outer cup with the KTM inner race.

i'll keep you all informed as it all goes together. the previous owner is sending the bearing saving me £20.

I finally reckoned that you were talking about the triple clamps.

What you're saying is that a KTM yoke/triple clamps do(es) not fit a Husaberg?

Or that it can be done with some work?

ok this one is for the lads that have a katoom.

i have fitted the yokes (yes, i mean yokes, why to an englishman would i say anything else?) and i hate the fit.

it's very tight. unlike every other bike i've oned in nearly 30 years there appears to be no castle nut that simply tightens the taper rollers and bottom yoke alone. no! i have to clamp the whole lot up!!

anyway i did 15lbs and it fills stiff and shitty.

anyone got any comments on this?

i'll check them out in the morning as i want to ride 'on the morrow'.

regards
