Exclamation NHTSA announced recall

No longer a "silent" recall:

"The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration has announced that Triumph Motorcycles are recalling 2006-2009 Triumph Daytona 675 models as well as 2006-2009 Triumph Street Triple and Street Triple R models.

According to the NHTSA, the “regulator/rectifier can overheat and prevent the motorcycle form charging. Once the battery is fully discharged, the motorcycle may stall.” If the motorcycle stalls, the likelihood of an accident goes up greatly, and greatly increases the risk of injury or death for the rider.

Triumph has announced that they will notify owners of the recalled motorcycles and are offering a free replacement of the regulator/rectifier.

Triumph can be contacted directly at (678) 854-2010. The NHTSA can also be contacted at their Vehicle Safety Hotline at (888) 327-4236."

The USA had a really hot summer this year and I suspect lots of the older R/R's went up in smoke. The upgraded kit is a fine unit. - Wayne

Does the 675 use the same R/R as the 1050? The R/R on my Sprint died about 2 weeks ago, and left me stranded!

it's about time this happened! i know there are some jury rigged replacements running around the net, but that's not a solution. triumph should have sorted this out a long time ago.
