Hi all, now I have the time and money to jump on this, there seems to be a world shortage of these buggers. Everywhere I look they are on back order but at least the old gear pinion seems to have been replaced by K60038001024
I always feel guilty/concerned when I'm out for a ride knowing I should have done this ages ago

Thanks for that WM.
Fowler's got back to me and said it's on backorder as it's not a part they keep a supply of unlike filters ect. They said go ahead with the order and they order from KTM
Simples !

Thanks also for this WM, mines being delivered today from Fowlers.
Prevention is certainly way cheaper than a rebuild !


this is everything i ordered from Fowlers to do the job https://www.fowlersparts.co.uk/

on backorder though, but still work getting the job done ASAP. its something that costs £50, but it could cost you more if it breaks.

It's been a while but this has now been done, not too difficult but took it slowly and combined the work with a good service.
I also ended up ordering a clutch cover gasket and a waterpump rubber gasket. Probably not needed but made it easier and hopefully there'll be no leaks.
It would have been an ideal time to have fitted a new water pump shaft seal and, if your keen and flush, perhaps one of those gear selector jobbies from the states. I couldn't justify the £££.
Pleased I've done it, peace of mind.
Thanks for the heads up @whitemarmite
