Ktm recalls

Evening all,

I was wondering if anyone has heard of KTM doing their factory recalls on older bikes?

My 04 950 has some outstanding recalls such as the cylinder head nuts and i was wondering what the score would be if a approached my local dealer about having the work done.

Has anyone else had the same issue?

Stu

I just had a recall done on my 05 for the rear brake master cyl. Dealer was happy to take care of it for me. I had just bought the bike and had them run the vin and let me know what needed to be taken care of under recalls.

Standard advice. DO NOT ALLOW THEM TO DRILL THE TANKS for the stupid crossover line.

I didn't notice you're in the motherland. The tank cross-vent TSB might only be for countries where the sun shines So may be a non-issue.

I have that annoying cross over line on my 03, the cylinder heads did have a pink mark on one of the bolts. So I take the TSB was done on the head cylinders ?

Sorry not trying to hi-jack Stupot

Same for me several years ago. Bad news its still doesnt work very well and squeaks like hell!

Solved that on the front with new braking rotors and pads. Work better than stock ever dreamed of....

From The Hall Of Wisdom

While the cams are out, now is a good time to check the head nut torque. Also check to make sure the "Cylinder Head Collar Nut" Tech Bulletin has been done. If not, do it now. It insures that the torque is correctly applied. As I said earlier, you will need to remove the radiator and rotate the oil tank out of the way to get at the front head nuts, but this only takes another 15 minutes or so. The head nuts shown in some of the photos are the old type without washers. I upgraded to the new nuts and washers at a later date.

The new headnut and washer is on the left. Notice the difference in shoulder height and overall length.

Notice that the washer is visible in this instance. Also note that the head stud is recessed slightly compared to the old nut on the right.
If you have a 2003/2004 and have replaced the head nuts, or if you have a 2005 or newer which includes the upgraded nuts from the factory, I recommend that you retorque the heads every time you are required to remove the cams in order to make a shim change. If the shims do not need changing, leave the head nuts alone. The more times you remove the cam bridges unnecessarily, the more chance for an expensive error. However, if you have a 2003/2004 and still have the original nuts, they have a tendency to not stay torqued. so I strongly recommend re-torquing every valve check, this will require removal of the cams even if your valve clearances are in spec. Consider this an incentive to upgrade to the newer nuts.
(Thanks crazybrit)

Thank you for the information Chuckracer.

Edit: Bought it with 33600 miles, did a full service and have put about 3k on since. Had an small issue on a trip in Wales with the oil pressure switch but made it all the way back with topping oil :lol: Ive changed it now though, going to change out the cam chain tensioner plus rails, whilst I am there Ill check on cylinder the bolts and washers.
