KTM Australia has recalled model year 2015/16 1290 Super Adventure motorcycles over a possible fuel leak.

The official notice issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says an error occurred in the moulding process of the fuel tank.

“There may be a fuel leakage at the lower fitting insert for the fuel tank fairing in the seat area,” the notice says.

“Should a fuel leak occur, escaping fuel could cause damage or may result in fire.”

Owners will be contacted by direct mail, notifying them of the recall and requesting they make an appointment with their local authorised KTM Australia dealer.

We have published this recall notice in case the bike has been privately sold and KTM Australia no longer has a record o the owner.

“Authorised dealers will complete an inspection of the tank production information. This will determine the required course of action, which may include a corrective measure,” the notice says.

As with all recalls, repairs will be free.

For further information, owners can contact KTM Australia on 1800 644 771 or find their nearest authorised dealer using the dealer search option.
