Share this Article

KTM is issuing a worldwide recall on approximately 7000 motorcycles from model year 2012 and 2013 for potential fuel hose leaks. The recall affects certain EXC, EXC-F, XC-F, XC-W, XCF-W, Freeride, SX-F,  and Supermoto R models with electronic fuel injection. (See after the jump for specific models included in the recall.)

According to KTM, a defect in the manufacturing process of the molded fuel hoses on affected models may lead to a fuel leak either at the ends or where the hoses bend.

KTM owners can check to see if their motorcycles are included in the recall campaign by visiting the Service section of KTM’s website and entering the 17-digit chassis number and the delivery certificate number.

Authorized dealers will replace the fuel hoses with the new component at no charge. The service should take an estimated 30 minute to complete.
