Make: KTM Model: LC4 640 ENDURO
Model Year: 2002
Manufacturer: KTM NORTH AMERICA, INC Mfr's Report Date: MAR 24, 2006
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 06V090000 N/A
NHTSA Action Number: N/A
Component: WHEELS
Potential Number of Units Affected: 1714
Summary:
ON CERTAIN MOTORCYCLES, THE FRONT WHEEL SPOKES CAN BECOME LOOSE AND BREAK, CAUSING FURTHER DAMAGE TO ADJACENT COMPONENTS.
Consequence:
SUCH A FAILURE OF A FRONT WHEEL SPOKE COULD POSSIBLY DAMAGE THE TIRE'S INNER TUBE, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
Remedy:
DEALERS WILL INSTALL CLIPS TO HELP SECURE A LOOSE SPOKE TIGHT TO THE NEXT CROSSING SPOKE. THE RECALL BEGAN IN APRIL 2006. OWNERS MAY CONTACT KTM AT 1-440-985-3553.

This sounds all nice and good. Just when I bought my 640E close to three years ago. I went down to the local KTM shop.
Cascade Motor Sports

They told me they did not have to honor the warranty work if I did not buy the KTM new.
