"When you pull the rear of the bike the gas tank move about 1/4 of an inch. I spoke with Todd Jones and he knows of the problem and is sending parts to the dealer to effect a repair. This is bullshit, if they know about the problem they should just recall it and be done with it.

I will let you know about the repair after I get the parts. I purchased this bike to scout new trails so I am planning on riding it hard off-road. It's not an option for the gas tank to be loose, I don't want to have to go back and look for it on the trail..."

Trailtrick - Keep us informed on the outcome, mine seems to have the same problem I thought it was just play in the rubber bushings in the mount, but if KTM is replacing parts down there I need to get to the dealer and have it fixxed

After speaking to Javier I went out and checked the tank and sure enough their was about 1/4" of play. I actually had the side panel off when I checked it which makes it move more freely.

Thanks Javier for doing the leg work on this and getting some contact info from KTM.
