Dont know if this is old news or what, but there was this little blurb about a KTM recall in our paper this morning:
• About 20,000 KTM off-road motorcycles, distributed by KTM North America, because the seal around the fuel tank can loosen and fuel can leak, posing a fire hazard. For more information, call 1-888-985-6090 or go online to www.ktmnorthamerica.com or www.cpsc.gov.
