If you own a Triumph Bonneville T120, and have heated grips, this recall from Triumph Motorcycles America should be on your radar.

The British marque is recalling 1,390 units from the 2016 and 2017 model years because the heated grips might expand, which can then cause the throttle to stick open.

Obviously, being unable to close the throttle can create a serious safety issue, so it is not surprising to see the motorcycles recalled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

As such, Triumph will notify affected owners, and Triumph dealers will install a spacer to prevent the throttle from sticking, free of charge. This recall is expected to begin February 20th, 2017.

Concerned Bonneville owners may contact Triumph customer service at 1-678-854-2010, and reference Triumph recall number SB 546. As always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and
