Just thought I'd post this on here for all the ST 1050 owners.

I've got an 05 Speed Triple and had problems with the front brake. I know some ST owners have had problems with their brakes as well.

If you are one of those owners get in touch with your local dealers. All Triumph dealers world wide have been given direction on rectifying the problems and in the case of the 1050 ST it is a replacement master cylinder.

This isn't a product recall, but factory guidance on sorting any bikes with front brake problems.

sorry to dig up this thread guys, but just to clear up any issues some may be having with their dealers, here is the bulletin straight from the factory


Re: Speed Triple 1050 front brake - increased lever travel. Machines built prior to Vin: 253302.

A small number of Speed Triple customers of bikes built prior to Vin 253302 are reporting dissatisfaction with the Speed Triple 1050 radial front brake and for reasons of customer goodwill, we would like to confirm our wish to satisfy these owners.

The reported issue is that of control lever travel variation which has been a concern of some customers, to the extent that we have modified later Speed Triple models to accommodate our customers’ requirements.

For clarity we wish to confirm that the enhancement fitted on the latest models is available to customers who purchased 1050 Speed Triples prior to VIN 253302 as a goodwill gesture. This involves the installation of coated caliper pistons to the front brake calipers only. Please carry out this work for any customers’ who express any concerns.

This new repair code covers the time to modify 2 caliper assemblies and the admin credit element. Please conduct a Full Download from tomorrow onwards to capture these new codes.

Thank you for your cooperation.
