KTM Recall Offroad Models

Published: 08 November 2012

KTM has announced a recall of around 7000 off road bikes from their 2012/13 range after a manufacturing defect was discovered that could potentially lead to fuel leaks.

The fault, which only affects 239 bikes in the UK and Ireland, hasn't yet led to a reported incident, and KTM are recalling as a precaution.

The fault, traced back to a supplier's manufacturing problem, could lead to a break in hoses at bends in the molded fuel pipes.

Customers are being contacted directly by KTM, but can also enter the frame number of the bike on www.ktm.com to track it. The fault can be repaired at any KTM dealer and takes around 30 minutes.

Models affected are:

Off-road 2012:
250 EXC-F Six Days, 250 SX-F
350 EXC-F, 350 SX-F, Freeride 350
450 EXC
500 EXC

Off-road 2013:
