The Öhlins suspension recall continues to affect motorcycle manufacturers, as Triumph is now recalling two of its models, the Daytona 675 R and Speed Triple R, for faulty Swedish shocks.

For Triumph, the recall only affects 566 units — those models that were built between January 1, 2014 and April 1, 2015 — and it will commence on May 15th of this year.

As loyal A&R readers will remember, the Öhlins shocks may have been built improperly, as the nut on the damper rod may loosen, thus resulting in a loss of damping and the possible disassembly of the shock.

Triumph will notify affected owners, and Triumph dealers will replace the rear shock absorber, free of charge. Concerned Triumph owners may contact Triumph customer service at 1-678-854-2010, and reference recall number SB524. As always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and
