New recall coming.

It seems that on some of our bikes the clutch cable has been rubbing on the wiring around the steering head. Triumph is going to have the dealers put a new bracket on the affected VINs. The models are: 2016 Triumph Bonneville T120, Street Twin, 2017 Triumph Bonneville T100, Street Cup, Street Scrambler
The recall # given is 2019096. The NHTSA # is 19V133. I ran my VIN on the Triumph website. Mine is affected.

It does not matter where you go, how you got there, or how long it took you, someone on a Triumph Bonneville has done it before you. If you didn't do it on a Triumph, it doesn't really matter anyway.

When I took delivery of my T120 in March, 2016, it was easily seen that the plastic clutch cable and wiring bundle bracket would abrade the clutch cable. The fix was to remove the clutch cable from the bracket and just let the cable hang free. I also pulled the wiring bundle forward a little so that it would not be wrapped tightly around the steering head with the steering on the right stop. No problems since.

With respect to the aforementioned recall, TSMGGUY's suggestion ought to be on a "Must Do List" for every new W/C Twin owner.

Here's what I got when I put my VIN (2016 ST) into the Triumph web site (https://m.triumphmotorcycles.com/safety-recall-search). I had my harness reconfigured after losing power to the speedo a couple of years ago, but will bring it in for this change.

SUMMARY
The headstock tidy (guide) situated behind the head stock on the left-hand side of the main frame is used to position the clutch cable and main harness, which in its original condition may allow the clutch cable to contact the main harnesssheath, potentially causing damage to the wiring within the main harness. If this condition occurs and remains undetected, it may lead to a loss of electrical power to various electrical circuits.

CONSEQUENCE
As a consequence, headlight or indicator lighting may malfunction or engine power could be lost without warning, increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY
Owners are advised to bring their motorcycles to a Triumph dealer to havethe original headstock tidy replaced with a new version free of charge (parts and labour).

NOTES
MANUFACTURER REFERENCE: SRAN560For more information, please visit www.triumphmotorcycles.com or call 1-888-284-6288. Please have your VIN ready when calling.

WHAT TO DO NEXT?
To ensure your maximum safety, we require your co-operation to ensure your motorcycle is modified without delay. Please contact your local or preferred Triumph dealer immediately to book your motorcycle in for the recall work to be carried out free of charge. To find your dealer, please use our Find A Dealer search.

On the left side just under the front of the fuel tank you will find a black plastic clamp held by two screws that require a torx head driver. This is the clamp that holds both the wire bundle and the clutch cable. To access it, you will need to remove the rear tank mount bolt under the front of the seat, and slide the tank rearward about two inches. There are no forward tank hold down bolts.

Next, loosen the two clamp screws and remove the clutch cable from under it. Next, gently move the handle bars as far to the right as they will go, and watch to see if the cable bundle moves slightly forward. It should, so at this point, retighten the two screws. This process should have taken some or all of the strain from the cable bundle when the bars are move far right. See photo.

As you can see, I just have a loose cable tie around the clutch cable so that it will not bear on the cable bundle. I will have a look at the recall process when available at my dealer.

thanks,
Gary
