9*0 CHAIN SLIDER: YERY IMPORTANT.

KTM released a safety recall. The chain slider is a plastic protector that sits around the swing arm guiding and protecting the chain from the swing arm. If it becomes detached it may become entangled in the front sprocket causing the rear wheel to lock. Happened to a chap at 90mph on the slab.

Simple to check and resolve, remove the two bolts from the swing arm, clean and apply plenty blue thread lock i.e. loctite 243, and tighten to 6nm.
