2014 exhaust rattle
« on: May 07, 2014, 07:23:43 am »
I have been noticing the exhaust has a rattle that seems to be coming from inside the can.  Nothing else is loose or would otherwise produce this sound.  I am also not sure (right now) if it only does it when it is cold.
Anyone with a 2014 and stock set up have this situation?

Sounds like a warranty replacement to me!  I doubt there's a way to service that can.

And that DOES sound awful.  Good luck.

I have a buzz noise that has developed, but I have a Wings.  On my last ride there was a buzz on the left side.  At red lights i tried touching the heat shields; no change.  When I stopped, revved the engine, but could not find it.  It's most noticeable when accelerating.

Thoughts?

I sent the video clip to the dealer and they also checked with KTM - warranty claim and will replace it.  He did want me to drop by so he could hear it in person also, but said the video clip would suffice.
Too bad they won't replace it with say.... a Wings or Akro exhaust or something. :-(   (has to be a KTM part #)   I'm sure Wings/Akro would be cheaper than OEM.

Will update once completed.

Dealer plugged in the muffler part # to reorder...  "None Orderable part"    He has another call into KTM to see what the correct part # is. 
I asked IF KTM can't order it (for what ever reason and in a reasonable time period) can he talk to KTM about a compromise, like an allowance to get something else.  I understand the 'new' muffler will not be covered by KTM warranty etc etc.....    He is game and will let me know once he talks with KTM again.

oh... and wants close to $250-300 for first service.  WTF?   2hrs labor plus oil and filter kit.

Yeah, it's a scam.  They want the same for the first service in Houston, yet they won't provide an itemized list of what services are provided.  If I had to do it over, I'd purchase the service manual for $26 and do it myself.  The only thing you can't do is plug the ECU into their computer to look for trouble codes.

Fair enough, take it in after you've serviced the bike and ask them to plug it into their computer.  It shouldn't take more than 1/4 hour's labor.
