Is this just for the US or worldwide?
Didn't realise it was such a common fault, only recall reading about one guy on here with a broken spring, aren't there two springs though, surely they won't both break at the same time.

Folks are carrying extra springs in their bags just in case it breaks...that is how bad it is...

I suppose there must have been a few occurrences to warrant the recall.
Would you even be able to fit a spring by hand at the side of the road?
I might just put some tubing around my springs then if that's the fix, my bikes don't go near a Triumph dealer if I can avoid it.

Not sure...I concur with not going to the Stealership...last time with the fuel recall they put my tank on improperly...but mine is going back for sure...even if it is for me to just ask for the replacement...its a hazard and needs to be dealt with.

By law the dealers must do the actual repair, it's a liability issue. After 60+years of riding and much pleading with dealers in Ga, NJ, NY, CT, to hand over warranty parts I've never had success. I wish you better luck.

Thanks for that...No need to argue with them about it. I just want it done right the first time...Either way, I am glad there is a fix. Overall...still in love with my Thruxton...so that’s all that counts.

Anyone get official notification yet? Or even better...have it fixed already? My spring is hanging on by one...so I would be interested to see what the fix really is.

Mine is still in storage, but once we get some warm weather up here in PA I'll make the trip to the dealer.

I got my recall notice yesterday so will book it in today, when the spring fails the bike won't start because of the safety switch is the reason for the recall, well that what it said in the recall notice.

The bike will start as normal if the stands down, I think the safety concern is the engine cutting out when you're riding if it leaves the switch.
No recall in the UK as yet so can someone Post a pic of the new springs, is it just a rubber sleeve?

Just saw this.

I got my official notice last week by email.
I’m new to all this Triumph specific stuff and have just booked in to the dealership in Geelong Au. To have it fixed....coincides with my first service.
I’m a bit freaked out about riding it until it’s done....

After I heard about the recall I put a plastic tube around mine. I took my bike in for a new ignition switch on 2/20/20 and they did they side stand recall and forgot to tell me. So when I got the side stand recall yesterday I went to check and the technician told me they got the parts in with ignition switch

I would not worry too much about the side stand but the almost $800 it takes to replace the ignition switch, seat and gas tank lock.

I live in PA and the closest dealer to me is 63miles away so I called to get all the information on what and how I need to get the recall done. The dealership I talked to said that he would ship it to me if I paid the $9 shipping fees, or put it on if I came down. I was under the understanding that a dealer had to perform the recall. The only reason I didn't take that offer is that I only have 600 miles on my TTR and I need to get the first service.
