Re: Failure Fork KTM 1290 Super Adventure.

I hope you can fix all under warranty. Luck. So far everything has been covered under warranty . I am currently waiting for the fork cartridge which when I spoke with KTM corporate they had no idea of the availability . The KTM rep said " you can order a piston for a 1985 ktm but it doesn't mean th...
