KTM recall

Recall #: 2017084
Models Involved: 2012-2016 KTM 690 Duke
Number of Vehicles: 359
Problem: On certain motorcycles, an electrical connection can be created via the brake line between the anti-lock brake (ABS) modulator and vehicle ground. If the wiring harness is frayed and contacts the ABS modulator, there is a potential for the brake line to conduct electricity, causing overheating and ultimately melting the brake line. This can result in failure of the brake system circuit.  This is an expansion of recall 2016-610.
Correction: Dealers will inspect the wiring harness and re-position the wiring harness for the engine control unit. Additionally, dealers will add and attach a ground cable to the ABS modulator and mount it to the motorcycle’s frame.
