recall

Not sure if this affects any of you, but just in case:


Report Date : November 17, 2012 at 06:24 PM
NHTSA Campaign ID number : 12V531000


Vehicle Make / Model: Model Year(s):
KTM / 350 EXC-F 2012-2013
KTM / 500 EXC 2012-2013
Manufacturer: KTM NORTH AMERICA, INC Report Receipt Date: NOV 09, 2012
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 12V531000 NHTSA Action Number: N/A
Component: FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINEELIVERY:HOSES, LINES/PIPING, AND FITTINGS
Potential Number of Units Affected: 1,181
Summary:
KTM North America, Inc.'s (KTM) is recalling certain model year 2012 and 2013 350 EXC-F and 500 EXC motorcycles manufactured from September 2011 through August 2012. Due to the supplier's manufacturing inconsistencies, the preformed fuel hoses may develop cracks or holes at either end. During use, the fuel hoses, located between the fuel tank and the throttle body fuel rail, may allowing fuel to leak.
Consequence:
The fuel may leak onto the rear tire while the motorcycle is being ridden, increasing the risk of a crash. It is also possible that, in the presence of an ignition source, a fire can occur.
Remedy:
KTM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the defective fuel hoses free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin in early December 2012. Owners may contact KTM Customer relations at 1-888-985-6090.
Notes:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Check to Request Research. Submit below.

Went with akarob and berjon to recover the tag. Berjon's Strom took a couple dirt naps, but he was too fast for me to photo any evidence. Here are a couple from the ride

Akarob navigating the Strom through the minefield.

Hanton City Road

Checked out a local historic area ..
Hanton City is an abandoned area next to the Fidelity Complex in Smithfield RI.

I found two decent dirt roads and a pipeline section.
Nothing challenging and not too long either....
There is a really wet section on the pipeline if you want to get muddy...
I guessing p_funk would like it...

I did run into some hunters so it would be best to check it out after hunting season..

Here is the wiki page for additional info:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanton_City,_Rhode_Island

And if you search youtube, there are additional videos...
It is include in the Creepy Places of New England show as "The Lost City"

Nice JGorm. You should really put together a northern RI loop . You seem to have a knack for going out and finding these terrific places to ride. I'm sure you would have no shortage of BBDR's willing to join you, me for one. Weather looks good for this coming wknd.

There are some good areas to hit... but it seems like there are a fair number of hunters out and about these days...

I'm starting to freak myself out on some of the explorations....
all alone, in the middle of nowhere, and some hunter gets pissed that I messed up his day...
I think I will let them have the woods for deer season...
its not that long of a hunting season...
but I should be able to string a couple of locations together for a pretty decent ride when its over...

If it's smoking a little, it's no big deal. If you're leaving a smoke screen, it's time to get into it.

For what it's worth, I'm getting ready to do a piston job on my KTM right now, and it's not even smoking. The service interval for the piston is 100 hours, by the book. I'm at 250 hours and I'm going to do it before my cylinder is ruined. It's basic maintenance on a wafer thin piston. I'll clean the carbon off the back side of the valves and check the valve clearance, seats and springs while I'm in there.
Today I opened her up;
Cylinder looks serviceable, probably just hone it for new rings,



Piston looks ok, but will have to mic it at work tomorrow. Oil ring looks like it isn't as expanded as the other rings, could be the cause of the smokin...



Head has some carbon, nothing nasty, but will pull the valves and inspect and clean.



Parts on the way from Thumpertalk..

Anyone need a winter project?
This little number is for sale in the basement of the local junk shop. I didn't ask the price, but I can if anyone's interested. FWIW, engine is not seized.
