KTM North America, Inc.’s (KTM) is recalling (1,181 units) 2012 and 2013 350 EXC-F and 500 EXC motorcycles manufactured from September 2011 through August 2012. Due to the supplier’s manufacturing inconsistencies, the preformed fuel hoses may develop cracks or holes at either end. During use, the fuel hoses, located between the fuel tank and the throttle body fuel rail, may allow fuel to leak. The fuel may leak onto the rear tire while the motorcycle is being ridden, increasing the risk of a crash. It is also possible that, in the presence of an ignition source, a fire can occur. KTM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the defective fuel hoses free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin in early December 2012. Owners may contact KTM Customer relations at 1-888-985-6090. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
