KTM recalls EXC, SX and FREERIDE motorcycles to the dealer network to be checked.
During routine testing, KTM has discovered that deviations in the manufacturing process of the aluminium fuel pump nut might result in insufficient sealing and cause fuel leakage on 250, 350, 450 SX-F/XC-F/EXC-F and EXC Six Days bikes of model year 2016.
In addition, deviations in the manufacturing process of the molded fuel hoses fitted to 250, 350, 450 SX-F MY2016 as well as 250 and 450 SX-F Factory Edition MY2015 could cause fuel leakage.
Market monitoring has shown that in extreme riding conditions, the fuel tank breather may leak in individual cases on FREERIDE 350 MY2012-2016 and FREERIDE 250 R MY2014-2016 models.
In extreme cases, the leaked fuel may cause damage or fire in the three cases referred to above.
All owners of affected units are currently being informed in writing by KTM. Customers can contact their authorised KTM dealer for more information including if their motorcycle is affected by this recall.
The modification can only be implemented by an authorised KTM dealer and will be free of charge for affected units.
