If you have a 2019 model year Triumph Speed Twin, you might want to pay attention to this recall from Triumph Motorcycles America. It affects 726 motorcycles, and relates to the radiator hose routing.
According to Triumph, an internal audit discovered that improper routing on the 2019 Triumph Speed Twin’s coolant expansion hose may cause it to contact the exhaust header pipe, which can damage the hose, and result in a coolant leak near the rear tire.
If the coolant spills near the rear tire, it can create a loss of traction for the motorcycle, which could lead to the motorcycle crashing.
To remedy the situation, Triumph will notify affected owners, and Triumph dealers will inspect the coolant hose routing, rerouting the hose and replacing it if necessary, free of charge. This recall is expected to begin in April 2019.
Concerned Speed twin owners may contact Triumph customer service at 1-678-854-2010, and reference Triumph’s number for this recall, which is SRAN563. As always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and safercar.gov.
