690 Recall on handelbarclamps !!
« on: July 13, 2011, 05:36:00 pm »
Anybody heard about this ! KTM Bloem called me today and sed there is some RT bulletin recal on my  690 R from KTM AUSTRIA and that the they have to replace the top part of the handlebar clamps.  :patch:

Blykbaar begin dit kraak en dan breek dit net ??? Weet iemand iets daarvan want ek nog niks opgemerk nie !!

Wel net bly ek gekoop by Bloem want by die voorige agenskap wat ek so getrou geondersteun het sou hul my nooit gebel het nie.....nooit nie ! >:(

Dag ek bring dit maar net onder julle mede HONDE se aandag  :thumleft:

I had the same recall , but on my 350SXF not the 690 , so your's must be a newer model than mine . the newer clamps weren't hardened properly and crack easily , when i removed my handlebar pad the one clamp was already in half .
Do the swap as soon as you can !
to top it of my 350 had another recall to replace a bearing deep in the box , the have to split the engine to get there.
Bummer .
