Critical point of breach chassis

Thanks to, wittman, barbasma and the fine folks at

Translation: This disadvantage has been found on the construction chassis vintage year 2003, I say construction and not registration.

If from the booklet of circulation not succeeded to go back to the year of construction of the motion you transcribe your number of chassis and makes it you to visionare to your concessionaire KTM of confidence, it will be in conditions for going back to the vintage year of construction.

Premetto that in occasion of this defect guarantee KTM has answered with the substitution of the chassis.

In the photo the point of breach of the chassis is visible, hour is present a welding that has been executed before the participation in guarantee, if not a lot were the welding probably the cracking would not be visible.
In order to notice it could be sufficient to pass the hand over, to eye often is not visible, sight the paint job of black color.

The critical zone is situated in the skillful side (side posterior brake) under to the footrest in correspondence of the attacks of the cavaletto centers them (than on this present motion not e') close to a bolt that fixed the motor.
The leak of the chassis does not happen on mounting or the crib but if watched under the footrest side brake you will see the posterior attack of the slab fixed bumper with an embedded bolt if moved a po' behind (with the look) you will find a ring of the fixed chassis with a bolt. Such ring has a thickness much small (said 5/6 milimeter) breaks off the advanced part of this ring well.

It seems that the chassis is broken off for via of the slackening of the bolt (consequent to the vibrations). In order to tranquilize the the 950 minds of Adventure in the new chassis the thickness e' be increased and the bolt e' different.
