Recall: KTM & Husaberg Dirt Bikes 2011 Husaberg FE 570 635x389

KTM North America is recalling 1,228 KTM and Husaberg dirt bikes for improper heat treatment, which could lead to the handlebar clamps developing cracks, and allowing the bars to move from their set position. The affected models are as follows:

  • 2011 Husaberg FE 570S
  • 2011 Husaberg FS 570
  • 2011 KTM 450 EXC
  • 2011 KTM 530 EXC
  • 2010-2011 KTM 690 Enduro R

Authorized KTM dealers will replace the defective clamps free of charge, with the recall schedule to start this June. Concerned owners may contact KTM customer service at 1-888-985-6090. Also the NHTSA, as always, is also available at 1-888-327-4236 or safercar.gov.

    I agree Max. Also iirc all I have to do to tag it where I live is hook up a brake light and the mirror. ;^)
