The Austrian brand KTM has called review models of KTM 1290 Super Adventure by 2015 and 2016. The owners must go through your local dealer to check the semi-active rear shock and update its software.
This decision was the result of a study of KTM, which found that the semi-active rear shock absorber of these models can register a lack of tightness in the area of the connector. As a result of the loss of oil can damage the interior of the shock absorber and as a result cause it to malfunction.
In this tightness check of the suspension control unit (SCU) to the affected vehicles were also installed the latest software version of the rear shock, the result of the latest evolution. The clients, who possess the models that have turned out to be affected, will receive a letter where they will be notified of this problem and will be asked to contact their KTM local dealer for an appointment and be able to carry out this control. In addition, you will be able to check in online if your motorcycle is one of the affected across the service area of the website of KTM.
Both the review of the semi-active rear shock as the software update are completely free for the user.
