I totally understand and I really wish I had a concrete answer for you. According to what my dealer / KTM told me- they checked out the bike, found the clutch plates scorched / material rock hard and the only "defect" in KTM's list of things they gave the dealer to check for warranty purposes was the oil jet measured 0.2 vs 0.3mm. This "defect" was determined by KTM NA's tech team to be a non-issue due to the admitted very small difference, but couldn't that just be a factory defect that actually caused issues over time? KTM's tech said "it either flows or doesn't flow" which sounds kinda BS to me given oil jets in the 950/990's and mods people did with those. Then that was it, my issue was determined to be "user error" and I was un-warranty-able. Which couldn't be a more infuriating to be told about a bike that is supposed to be a rugged world beater when I only rode it back and forth to work / did some 2 track fire road style exploring on. Didn't use the clutch to bang through some gnarly rock gardens or anything, just used it to get it going and to slow it down. They couldn't point to any specific thing I did wrong- my free play was correct, everything was setup totally fine, etc per their checks. My question to both rep's I spoke to at KTM NA about the possibility of defective parts went completely unanswered. They responded very snarkily "how would a defective set of discs change anything?" to which I responded "well I'm no expert but if the tolerances weren't correct or if there was a bad batch of material couldn't that cause problems?" KTM answered "thats very unlikely or we'd have seen more issues" which is fair but I'd say its dangerous of them to assume their factories are 100% perfect and that is something that could never happen. I'm honestly grasping at straws at this point because I know I was not the cause of this issue but they were totally done talking to me. They turned unpleasant / impatient with me really quickly just because I suggested there could be something else wrong other than what they checked. Probably the worst part in my eyes is that despite me being extremely pleasant with them the first 3 calls I had with them and explaining how consistent of a customer I've been with them, they still couldn't find it in themselves to do some type of "good will" repair when my bike in the first batch to make it to the USA. Some middle ground like- "While we really don't think we are at fault for anything that has gone wrong, we definitely can understand your situaton as fellow riders and will cover this repair as a one-time courtesy to a long-time KTM customer." That way theres no guessing, no calling me a "shit rider" when I've been abuse-induced-problem free with all of my other bikes for 9 years of riding now, etc. I wouldn't be pissed at them for a lifetime, they wouldn't hate me and I wouldn't have to share such a negative experience on here and with potential owners over the phone at my workplace, turning them away from the brand. But instead they wouldn't even cover the diagnostic fee and I was 100% on my own for the fix.
