KTM has developed a new rear brake line which comprises a longer metal fitting and is claimed to have improved heat transfer. The company also added that it is important to change the round head Torx screw over the the rear brake lever.

The company is sending alerts to all the affected customers by mail. The owners are requested to carry the letter when visiting an authorized KTM service centre for the replacement of the affected parts.
