2010 Triumph Sprint GT / ST Recall

Motorcycle Recalls

Triumph is recalling certain model 2010 Triumph Sprint ST and Sprint GT motorcycles due to the plug / dipstick being the incorrect length. About 216 motorcycles are affected.

As a result, the accuracy of the dipstick for measuring adequate levels of oil may be compromised and due to this, oil levels may not be maintained on the Triumph motorcycles.

Inadequate oil levels may cause the Sprint engine to seize, leading to a loss of control of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

Due to the recall, dealers will replace the engine oil plug / dipstick fitted to the clutch cover free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin before January, 2011.

Owners who think their affected by the recall may contact Triumph Motorcycles at 678-539-8782.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to safercar.gov.
