KTM is recalling certain 2019 to 2020 790 Adventure models. The problem stems from a defect with the rear brake system. KTM says that the affected model’s rear brake hose may overheat causing the rear brake system to fail and potentially cause a crash or injury. According to the recall, there may be insufficient heat transfer between the hose and the metal fitting that mounts to the rear brake caliper.
