headset replacement

Good Morning,

I have a ktm bike sport ultra 2014 - 29'er, equipped with a tapered fork SR Suntour XC RAIDON-RL-29-R, and want to change the headset.

Thus, like to know if the following setup is compatible with my bike http://www.ktmbicyclesusa.com/bikes/...ltra-sport-29/ :

Cane Creek Headset 40.IS42 Short Cover Upper Top Part 1 1/8 Inches - IS42 / 28.6

Cane Creek Headset 40.IS52 Bottom Lower Part 1.5 Inches - IS52 / 40 (the crown race is included?)

Thanks a lot

Nuno

Didn't even know that KTM made bikes.

KTM uses the term "drop in" whereas Cane Creek uses the term "integrated" (IS), but these mean the same thing. KTM's site isn't particularly informative, but modern tapered standards are 1.125" top/1.5" bottom....so, your replacement choices should work, unless they're running some oddball "standard" other than 1.125"/1.5"....

Sometimes, we do things simply b/c we want to.

The original headset is making a loud creaking noise, and i believe the problem is in the manufacture quality of the headset.
So i want to replace it...
