Triumph Recalls Tiger 800 (Center Stand)

Motorcycle Recall

Triumph has recalled 668 Tiger 800 and Tiger 800 XC (2010-2011) motorcycles due to center stand issues.

Triumph says the optional accessory center stand assembly on Triumph Tiger 800 and 800 XC motorcycles built from Sept. 2010 through June 2011 contains a defective return spring that may break. If the spring breaks, the center stand may unexpectedly drop and drag along the road surface, increasing the risk of a crash.

Dealers will replace the return spring and repair the affected motorcycles free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet reported an owner notifications schedule. Owners may contact Triumph Customer Service at 1-678-854-2010.

Triumph’s Safety recall is No. 430. Owners may also contact the Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or visit safercar.org.
