    I always just run stock or tusk, and have barely ever needed to replace spacers, or wheel bearings, for that matter here in the dry southwest. I see a bit more mud these days being up where we get some real winter weather, but still likely a fraction of what most of the country sees since I mostly ride desert when it's cold at home. Either way, a buddy out here who's from the Northeast runs these from Moose, seems like they'd help keep crud out, not sure the longevity would be any better.

    This link also shows some spacers with the steel ring like that All Balls ad:

    Unfortunately Moose doesn't appear to offer much for KTMs.

    Long, long ago (15 years ago?) I bought a set made by an individual here on the KTMTalk. Aluminum with the steel sleeve. Still running it on my 11.

    RM sells rear Tusk wheel bearings and seals for $14.99 and the spacers are $9.99. For that price change them every time.

    Hello Pete - no our sleeves are not made that way anymore. The steel was pitting and the customers did not like it . Now they are all made out of black anodized aluminum .


    Thank you

    So they didn't use stainless? It they had rust or pits they would take out the seals faster.

    Take your bad ones to a machine shop and have some Stainless steal sleeves made for them. They will outlast the bike👍

    I use the Moose aluminum 1s because the beveled edges make it easier to swap my spare wheel in & out. Haven't noticed any extreme amount of wear.

    A little update; Cactus Flat was right, Moose Racing (Parts Unlimited) DOES carry steel sleeved spacers for my KTM. There website fooled me initially. Site sez the fronts are Zin Plate Hardened Steel and the rears are Hard Anodize 6061-T6 Aluminum. Need to order through a PU site/dealer @ about $25 each axle. I took the plunge.
