KTM USA Recalling all 2014 1290 Super Duke R motorcycles
KTM North America, Inc. (KTM) is recalling all model year 2014 1290 Super Duke R motorcycles manufactured July 1, 2013, to April 30, 2014. The affected motorcycles may leak fuel from the threaded inserts at the rear of the gas tank.
A fuel leak from the threaded inserts, in the presence of an ignition source, may increase the risk of a fire.
KTM will notify owners, and dealers will seal the threaded inserts to prevent future fuel leaks. If the motorcycle shows evidence of an existing fuel leak at the threaded insert, the gas tank will be replaced. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in August 2015. Owners may contact KTM customer service at 1-888-985-6090. KTM’s number for this recall is TB 15XX.
