Recall: KTM and Husqvarna Bikes Recalled Due to Danger of Tread Separation in Conti TKC80 Tires
“27,399 Bikes from 2019 to 2022 Are Affected”
If you have a 2019/2020/2021/2022 Huskie or Katoom-inclined machine in your garage with Continental TKC80’s you might want to put down your coffee and give this recall a quick skim – because it’s a big one.
Although there has yet to be a complaint filed on the batch of ill-performing rubbers, the dangers of tire tread separation are no joke; be sure to spread the word and check your garage, just in case.
Dealers in your area will replace any affected tires, free of charge (naturally). If you’re not sure if your machine is affected, the post will be sending deliveries of recall notifications and reminders on September 19, 2022.
