Motorcycle Recall - Triumph

NHTSA Campaign ID:  11V393000
Component:  Equipment
Manufacturer:  Triumph Motorcycles America LTD
Recall Date: 07/28/2011
Potential Number of Units Affected: 134
Defect Summary:
Triumph is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 Sprint GT, Tiger 800 and Tiger 800 XC motorcycles manufactured from June 2010 through June 2011. The top box locking handle is missing a clip on the locking mechanism and thus it is possible that the top box may detach from the machine.
Consequence Summary:
If the top box falls from the motorcycle, it could strike another vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary:
Dealers will install a new fitment clip part to the top box locking handle spindle to align the rack and pinion mechanism to prevent disengagement. The safety recall is expected to begin during August 2011. Owners may contact Triumph Customer Service Department at 1-678-539-8782.
