Motorcycle Recall - Triumph Recall

By Walter F. Kern

NHTSA Campaign ID:  16V163000
Component:  Electrical System
Manufacturer:  Triumph Motorcycles America, LTD
Recall Date: 03/21/2016
Potential Number of Units Affected: 120
Defect Summary:
Triumph Motorcycles America, LTD. (Triumph) is recalling certain model year 2016 Street Twin motorcycles manufactured September 7, 2015, to November 21, 2015. The wiring in the fuel tank that powers the fuel pump may have damaged insulation and, as a result, fuel may enter the wiring and travel down the harness, outside of the tank and drip from the connector at the main harness.
Consequence Summary:
A fuel leak, in the presence of an ignition source such as an electrical short, increases the risk of a fire.
Corrective Summary:
Triumph will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the fuel pump harness and replace it as needed, based on its batch number, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in April 2016. Owners may contact Triumph customer service at 1-678-854-2010.
