KTM issues a global recall for Duke 690 leaking fuel
KTM has issued a recall for all of its 690 Duke and 690 Duke R models manufactured since 2016 globally thanks to a potential fuel leak issues. Has KTM in Malaysia issued this very important recall?
KTM has pointed out that the gasket in the fuel tank filler neck could be susceptible to leaking fuel in some models, prompting the company to issue a recall. KTM will be sending letters to the owners of the affected batch of 690 Duke and the 690 Duke R. The company will replace the gasket and the filler neck on the bike free of cost and the time taken will be less than an hour.
The recall notice said, “Due to tolerance variations, the system comprising the fuel tank, fuel tank filler neck and fuel tank filler neck gasket may leak and fuel may escape. A new fuel tank filler neck with modified gasket that is leak tight has therefore been developed. The gasket of the fuel level sensor was modified as part of this, and must be replaced as well.”
