Motorcycle Recall - KTM Recall

By Walter Kern

NHTSA Campaign ID:  14V305000
Manufacturer:  KTM North America, Inc.
Recall Date: 06/05/2014
Potential Number of Units Affected: 649
Defect Summary:
KTM North America, Inc. (KTM) is recalling certain model year 2014 690 Enduro R motorcycles manufactured October 2013 to April 2014. In the affected motorcycles, the rear brake pedal mounting bolt may loosen, allowing the rear brake pedal to detach from the motorcycle.
Consequence Summary:
If the rear brake pedal detaches, the rider would only have the front brake to slow or stop the motorcycle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary:
KTM will notify owners, and dealers will install and properly torque, a washer and new rear brake pedal mounting bolt with threadlocker, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in July 2014. Owners may contact KTM customer service at 1-888-985-6090.
