After reading about Aussie KTM owners second recall, I got curious and looked at the triple clamp on my '03 450 EXC. The manufacturing stamp indicates a date of 4-02 - within the 2 thru 7 month period mentioned in Helmut Clasen's post. I took picture of the stamping, along with a copy of that post to my dealer. He called KTM USA and they told him to notify '03 KTM owners to NOT RIDE THE MOTORCYCLE! Here we go again!
