    Did anybody address these recalls/retrofits from the official KTM bulletins?

    • Oil hose repair kit
    • Preformed fuel hose/protection spring
    • Disc brake mounting screw
    • Swingarm bolt
    • Outer clutch hub (support rings)
    there is a whole lot more as part of this (clutch) bulletin, that seems pretty major and I never heard about them:
    - Monoshock replacement
    - Rear brake hose routing
    - Sidestand replacement
    - Instrument cover replacement
    - Chain fail protection nut replacement
    - Water pump seal ring
    - Control piston (in oil pressure pump housing) replacement
    - Oil pump connection shim installation
    - Oil check valve installation

    Can we gather all of these "recalls" and "service bulletins" up and have them all together? I personally haven't seen any of them. I would like to create a place where we can see all of them and/or print them out to umm... show our dealers.

    If you have access to some or one could you post it please?

    thanks,
    Brandt :freaky

    As posted a few times before, the are here.

    Besides the clutch on a few of the very first '03 bikes none of them are recalls BTW. All mods and upgrades are done at the regular service intervals - if needed -.

    It's not that every 950 needs all the mods and upgrades listed above. Most bikes (mainly '03 models) need only a few of them depending on the VIN #. I think we should be a little cautious not to turn this into a some sort of witch hunt... :D :freaky
