Triumph Motorcycles America has certain 2017-2018 Triumph Street Cup motorcycles due to a wiring issue that affects the hazard lights.Triumph says the wiring harness for the hazard warning lights may be pulled and strained during normal steering action.
The pulled wires may cause the wires to pull loose from the connector resulting in a loss of the hazard warning lights. This can reduce the motorcycles visibility when hazard warning lights are needed, increasing the risk of a crash.The number of vehicles affected is 635 with the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) range is from 780697 to 837579 (per the dealer notification).Triumph will notify owners, and dealers will extend the wiring length by installing a supplemental harness, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in July 2017. Owners may contact Triumph customer service at 1-678-854-2010. Triumph’s number for this recall is Safety Recall 549.Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov . The NHTSA Campaign Number is17V426000.
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends, the weekly podcast brought to you by Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Motos and Friends is brought to you by Yamaha. You can check out the amazing YZF-R7 at your local Yamaha dealer, or of course at YamahaMotorsports.com. The YZF-R7 is an amazing supersport machine that is comfortable too!
In this week’s first segment, Editor Don Williams takes the smallest BMW ADV bike on an urban adventure in Los Angeles. The BMW G 310 GS is a full size motorcycle with a modest engine, so of course we wonder if it is a little too underpowered and might struggle. Don put it through its paces and gives us his take.
In the second segment, Neale Bayly and Kiran Ridley have returned from the Ukraine to Paris where Kiran is based.
Kiran is an award winning photojournalist, and as an accomplished documentarian, he has covered stories as diverse as drug smuggling around the Mexican border, to the devastation of the Australian Bush Fires, to the tragedy of the Mediterranean migration crisis. Neale and Kiran reminisce about their motorcycle adventure in the Ukraine, and their observations and experiences with the incredibly resilient people of Ukraine, who have been put through such brutal hardship.
