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:
A fuel leak, in the presence of an ignition source such as an electrical short, increases the risk of a fire.

REMEDY:
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.

NOTES:
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.
