KTM has issued a recall of the Super Duke R 1290 to have the fuel tank checked and sealed.
According to routine investigations there were deviations in the manufacturing process of the supplier, which can lead to fuel leaking. “It cannot be ruled out, that the internal overflow pipe, which is secured on the inside of the tank by two threaded inserts, in some fuel tanks may not be completely enclosed by plastic,” a statement by the firm read.
“These gaps in the plastic sheathing can result in fuel penetrating the threaded inserts, which can lead to fuel leaking in small quantities.”
Further it stated that affected owners will be informed in writing. The free of charge service will be performed by authorised KTM dealers.
