KTM recalls 1290 Super Duke R models of model year 2014 in order to have the fuel tank checked and sealed at authorized KTM dealers.
During routine testing of the fuel system, KTM discovered deviations in the manufacturing process of the supllier which can lead to fuel leaking. Therefore, it cannot be ruled out, that the internal overflow pipe, which is secured on the inside of the fuel tank by two threaded inserts, in some fuel tanks may not be completely enclosed by plastic. These gaps in the plastic sheathing can result in fuel penetrating the threaded inserts, which can lead to fuel leaking in small quantities.
The supplier already changed its manufacturing procedure during production in 2014.
All owners of affected and already delivered vehicles will be informed in writing by KTM. More information or the information whether the respective motorcycle is affected by the recall can be gathered at the KTM dealers.
The sealing of the fuel tank can only be reviewed by an authorized and qualified KTM dealer. This guaranteeing is free of charge for official imported KTM motorcycles.
