Hi guys im getting my frame back from the powdercoaters next week and im going to need to refit new needle bearings into the frame for the swingarm to pivot on just wondering if its a job i can do easily with basic tools or do i need to drop it into my local ktm dealer.

The only problem is my local dealer is trevor pope and he always seems to be masively booked up in the workshop.

I put the bearings in the freezer for a while and heated up the swingarm where the bearings go. Still a tight fit but it can be done

Have to admit, I whimped out on those and got my local dealer to fit them..Wish I hadn't as the scratched my feckin frame :mad:

Phone TP up, they may well be able to fit you in as it's a bare frame and should only take them a few minuets
