    KTM says that no incident has come to light due to the defective part, but it is being changed as a precautionary measure. They also stated that it is a part manufactured by a third party and not by KTM itself.

    The replacement should take no more than 30 minutes and will be free of charge and covered under the warranty. The faulty part could cause petrol to spill out and result in a fire.

    obviously, otherwise it will be very difficult to find an issue in bikes already sold.
