Triumph Recall 08V116000

NHTSA Campaign ID Component Manufacturer Recall Date Units Potentially Affected
08V116000 Suspension: Rear Triumph Motorcycles America LTD 02/27/2008 265
Defect Summary
Triumph is recalling 265 model year 2008 Speed Triple motorcycles. The rear suspension unit (RSU) damping performance is controlled by a mixture of gas and oil contained within the unit. This mixture is kept inside the unit by control oil/gas seals. If the seals become damaged, the mixture will escape.
Consequence Summary
Once the mixture has escaped the RSU, the rear suspension will lose its damping ability. The rear suspension will be controlled only by the action of the coil spring also attached to the RSU.
Corrective Summary
Dealers will replace the RSU on affected motorcycles. The recall is expected to begin during March 2008. Owners may contact Triumph at 1-678-854-2010.
