Are 100% sure that that is a genuine Akra end-cap?

Unfortunatly your warranty claim has been refused as the warranty period on KTM Powerparts is 6 Months and is therefore expired.

Th best they can do is offer me a new end cap at a discounted price. End cap and carbon tip will come to almost half the price of a new wings pipe

And what prevents it from happening again?

Talking about local. If that was my pipe I would have taken it to Stealth performance pipes. They do amazing work at very competitive prices.
They might be able to manufacture a new end cap and fix/modify the pipe.

From the distributor:

With the next system you purchase ensure you re-pack the silencer often this is one of the biggest contributing factors to the rivets and end caps coming loose. What happens is once the exhaust wool is burnt away the damping it offers is no longer there and this then starts adding more vibration which will loosen anything.


Spoke to the OEM DEPT Akrapovic KTM at the Factory and they recommend the packing is changed at a minimum of every 6000km for average use. The Dakar bikes get changed for every stage to ensure no failures may occur which can cost them overall positions. Many things on bikes today require periodical checking to ensure they last...

Did KTM tell you when they fitted the bike that the packing should be changed every 6000kms?

If not make it their problem.

Do you actually live in South Africa ???

In South Africa it is never a dealers problem - the dealer is just the man between you and the factory <period>

Does that apply to all their products? Should I be doing the packing on my 2 1200's??

on the Wings they say as soon as any discolouring on the silincer is noticed, it should be repacked - mine has probably done about 10k km now and still seems fine
