KTM recalls all LC4 models

Australian recall notice announced

KTM Australia has recalled all LC4-powered 690 models from 2018 to 2020 over a clutch issue.

Owners have been asked to book their bikes into the workshops of authorised KTM dealers for an inspection and possible free replacement of the clutch slave cylinder.

“Damage to the seal caused by deviations in assembly may impair the function of the clutch slave cylinder,” the official notice issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission and says.

“All components of the version with a bellow gasket must therefore be replaced with the  new version without a bellow gasket.

“If the clutch fails to disengage it could result in a loss of motorcycle control increasing the risk of an accident causing serious injury or death to the rider and/or passenger or bystanders.” 

Customers with affected motorcycles have been advised by letter, but those who have bought the bikes second-hand in a private sale may not yet be aware.

The recall affects 576 motorcycles including the 690 Enduro R and 690 SMC R.

It follows a July recall of KTM motorcycles over an issue with the engine locking.

It’s not been a good year for KTM with four other recalls so far which is more than any other manufacturer.

VINs of affected bikes are:
