bike is a 2012,with less than 2000ks with a akro slip on inc akro mapping.

3, has there been a recall for this

You are not alone with this issue - Rally-Raid found this issue on a couple of 690Rs they were preparing for RTW travel and said they reported it to KTM. It sounded like some of the boots were "shorter" than specced Sorry I don't know if there is a factory TB on this issue. I will look around and see if I can find the RR article on this.
