KTM has issued a recall on the latest model year 2016 SX range in order to replace the front wheel spokes.

During routine testing in ongoing production, KTM discovered that due to variations in the spoke manufacturing process, some spokes on the front wheels of 125 SX, 150 SX, 250 SX, 250 SX-F, 350 SX-F and 450 SX-F MY2016 models may exhibit quality deviations.

Depending on where they are fitted in the wheel, care and spoke tension, it is possible that individual spokes may break while riding. This can overload the remaining intact spokes and may cause them to break.


New customers will be informed in writing and are asked to contact their local authorised motocross dealer to arrange an appointment. Customers can check if their motorcycle is affected by checking online in the “Service” area on the KTM website.

The replacement of the front wheel spokes can only be carried out by authorised KTM motocross dealers. This work is carried out completely free of charge.
