Motorcycle – KTM 990 Adventure ABS
Product description
Motorcycle produced between December 2005 and January 2007
Risk
This product poses a serious risk of injuries because investigations have shown that in certain riding conditions vibrations transmitted from the chassis to the rear brake hydraulic lines can create a phenomenon whereby gas is released from the brake fluid and collecting in pockets of gas in the hydraulic lines. Any pockets of gas within the hydraulic circuit of the rear brake will significantly reduce the effectiveness of the system and in extreme cases will render the rear brake inoperative.
