If you are the proud owner of a 2016-2017 Triumph Speed Triple R or Triumph Speed Triple S, you should take heed of Triumph’s latest recall, which affects 541 motorcycles.
The recall comes about because Triumph noticed a trend with its warranty repairs, that the regulator/rectifier lead for the the charging system may rub against a bracket for the ABS modulator, which could potentially result in an electrical short.
Triumph says that it will notify affected owners, and that Triumph dealers will replace the affected wire, and also reroute it to avoid contact with the bracket, all free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in November 2017.
According to documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the recall pertains to bikes with VINs between 738052 and 795114 that were sold in the United States (735337 thru 854938, worldwide).
A pretty straight-forward fix, Triumph is budgeting 45 minutes of labor for the recall work with its dealers.
Concerned Triumph owners may contact Triumph customer service at 1-678-854-2010, and reference Triumph’s number for this recall, which is SB552. As always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and safercar.gov
