Anybody have a problem with the main bushing worn out? When I replace it the stem still has alot of play, so I'm assuming the stem is worn under the bushing. Guess thats why the 09's have a different style bushing. Just curious how many others have this problem.

Same thing happened to mine. I replaced the whole thing with 09 parts.

Thats what I 'm going to have to do. Sucks, KTM should fix it, they know it was a problem, thats why the 09's have a different style bushing.

Did you have to change the whole stem also, or did you just switch to the newr style bushing?

it will tighten back up if you change the o-rings. thats what we did until 09 stuff showed up. we also added a grease zerk. worked good until we changed them out.

What parts are you ordering for the 08s? Mine is getting some play in it so might as well update to the 09 parts.

Stem, top bearings, bearing holder, & i believe thats it.everything else should fit from the 08
