xcfw Cam Lubrication issue

Recommended Posts

hello

was looking at another ktm forum site and found mention of a known issue with the 2014 era xcfw's and cam lubrication. Enough of an issue that it has caused over-heating and catastrophic engine failures. 

Has anyone hear of this? Or, was this just an over reactive post by an unfortunate victim.

Thank you

Bummer. Did you make any modification to insure this won't happen again?

put a new jet in it, cleaned the hell out of the motor while it was apart, ran it for 10 mins changed the oil and then again a hour later. then sold it and bought a husky fx350 lol
