KTM has issued a recall of its 2019 50 SX because of an issue with the carburettor which can cause the throttle to stick.
Information from Production Safety Australia
CHECK IF YOUR BIKE IS AFFECTED – VIN List_47
What are the defects?
On some motorcycles, the carburettor cover may not be screwed down and located correctly. The carburettor cover ensures the throttle slide will return to the closed position and cannot stay open.
What are the hazards?
As the carburettor cover acts as the upper throttle slide stop, if incorrectly fitted it may lead to the throttle slide sticking and being unable to return to the closed position. Should this occur, it could affect the riders ability to control and operate the bike safely and may cause an accident to the rider and others.
What should consumers do?
Consumers will be contacted by direct mail notifying them of the recall and requesting that an appointment be made with their local authorised KTM Australia dealer.
Authorised dealers will inspect the carburettor and repair free of charge if required.
For further information, consumers can contact KTM Australia on 1800 644 771 or find their nearest authorised dealer using the dealer search option at https://www.ktm.com/au/
