Triumph Motorcycles America, LTD (Triumph) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Daytona 675 R and Speed Triple R motorcycles manufactured January 1, 2014, to April 1, 2015. The affected motorcycles may have been built with an improperly manufactured rear shock absorber. The nut on the damper rod for these shock absorbers may loosen, resulting in a loss of damping and the possible disassembling of the shock.
If the piston rod nut loosens, shock absorber performance would be affected, possibly causing a loss of vehicle control and increasing the risk of a crash.
Triumph will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear shock absorber, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 13, 2015. Owners may contact Triumph customer service at 1-678-854-2010. Triumph’s number for this recall is SB524.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
