Triumph is recalling a number of Speed Triple and Daytona 675 motorcycles in Canada. Here's the breakdown:
2012-2013 Speed Triple
On 33 motorcycles, an incorrect washer was installed under the neutral switch during vehicle assembly. This could allow the neutral indicator light to remain illuminated when a gear is selected. As a result, the rider could mistakenly believe that the transmission is in the neutral position and release the clutch, allowing the bike to suddenly surge forward.
Dealers will therefore replace the neutral switch washer.
The second recall affects another 24 Speed Triples
from 2012-2013. An incorrect gearbox detent spring could allow the transmission to inadvertently shift out of gear while the bike is underway. This would result in a loss of propulsion which, in conjunction with traffic and road conditions, and the rider’s reactions, could increase the risk of a crash.
Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the gearbox detent spring.
2012 Daytona 675 and 675R
This recall affects 61 units. In some cases, the throttle cable guide was omitted during vehicle assembly. As a result, the throttle cables could become trapped in the steering stop, which could prevent the throttle from opening and closing normally. This could result in a loss of propulsion, or make it difficult to slow or stop the bike.
Dealers will install a throttle cable guide. Also, the throttle cables will be inspected and replaced if necessary.
