2016 Triumph Street Twin

A potential wiring defect is prompting Triumph Motorcycles America, LTD. to recall certain 2016 Street Twin motorcycles. Bikes affected are those manufactured between September 7, 2015 and November 21, 2015.

Triumph says 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.

The recall announcement cautions that, “A fuel leak, in the presence of an ignition source such as an electrical short, increases the risk of a fire.”

Under the recall, which will begin this month, 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. Defective parts will bear a batch code of “X111540044” or “X111540060”.

Owners may contact Triumph customer service at 1-678-854-2010. 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.
