KTM Issues Worldwide Recall for Faulty ABS

KTM has issued a worldwide recall for the KTM 1190 Adventure, Adventure R and 1290 Super Adventure R due to a faulty ABS control module and brake line.

‘Following market investigations by KTM it has been determined that due to deviations in the assembly process, in isolated cases, contact may occur between the wiring harness and the ABS modulator,’ says a release from KTM. ‘Measurements have shown that an electrical connection may be created via the brake line between the ABS modulator and the vehicle ground.

For this to occur, the wiring harness must be frayed and must be in contact with the ABS modulator and the brake line must be electrically conductive. This only occurs in very rare cases. A conductive brake line can overheat and ultimately melt which can result in failure of a brake system circuit.’

The recall is a big one for KTM, who says affected customers will be sent a letter asking them to immediately report to an authorized KTM dealer to have the recall carried out, free of charge. Of course, if you think this recall affects you and haven’t yet seen a letter or received a phone call, contact your local KTM dealer.
