Day was cut short at Senior Nats at Byron when gas tank on buddies Ktm split where it goes over backbone. Wondering if any others have experienced this. I hope KTM stands behind this as it is only three weeks old. The crack is five inches long and unrepairable. Where it is situated it dumps gas out on the head and exhaust. I am glad he didn't have to stop drop and roll. No, he didn't crash.

Never heard about it. KTM build's high quality Dirtbikes. If they put hyd clutches on the bikes for quality they will replace a faulty gas tank.
