KTM recall for specific models for year 2017
\KTM is recalling specific frame numbers of SX-F, XC-F, XC- W, EXC, EXC-F and EXC Six Days models of current model year 2017, to the workshops of authorised KTM dealers for a complete replacement of the hand-brake cylinder.
Following market investigations by KTM, it has been determined that anomalies in the manufacturing process have resulted, with certain batches, in hand-brake cylinders with defective machining. This can lead to early wear of the sealing cup in the hand-brake cylinder, thus leading to impaired braking performance.
As the anomalies are restricted to specific batches, the hand-brake cylinder must be checked and the affected batches replaced.
Customers to whom the affected motorcycles have already been delivered are being informed by a personal letter and are asked to contact immediately an authorised KTM dealer to arrange an appointment for replacement. In addition, customers can check online in the “service” area of the KTM website to determine if their motorcycle is affected by this recall.
The check and replacement of the hand-brake cylinder will be carried out at no cost to motorcycle owners, but must be performed by authorised KTM dealers only.
The following models are affected by the recall:
• KTM 250 SX-F EU
• KTM 350 SX-F EU/US KTM 450 XC-F US
