NHTSA Recall - Regulator/Rectifier 2006-2009

Model Year(s):
TRIUMPH / DAYTONA 675 2006-2009
TRIUMPH / STREET TRIPLE 2006-2009

Manufacturer: TRIUMPH MOTORCYCLES AMERICA LTD
Mfr's Report Date: SEP 05, 2012

NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 12V445000
NHTSA Action Number: N/A

Component: ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:ALTERNATOR/GENERATOR/REGULATOR

Potential Number of Units Affected: 10,366

Summary: Triumph is recalling certain model year 2006-2009 Street Triple, Street Triple R, and Daytona 675 motorcycles. The regulator/rectifier can overheat and prevent the motorcycle from charging. Once the battery is fully discharged, the motorcycle may stall.

Consequence: If the motorcycle stalls, there is an increased risk of a crash leading to personal injury.

Remedy: Triumph will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the regulator/rectifier, free of charge. Triumph has not provided notification schedule. Owners may contact Triumph customer service department at 1-678-854-2010.

Notes: Owners may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153); or go to http://www.safercar.gov.

Funny this is the exact reason I told the instructor at the Triumph school. He was saying it wasn't really a safety problem. I told him what if the bike dies in the middle of the freeway or a high speed corner. He thought it was a good point. He's since been let go from Triumph who knows why.

This interesting. There was a service bulletin to fix these as well. I guess it has reached recall severity. Mine failed last Monday leaving me with a non-functioning bike while on the highway. Lucky for me I managed to get off the highway safely. Had it replaced by the dealer on Friday and everything works fantastically.

Moral of the story: If you're bike is in this category - SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT NOW.

Hiya, Did you get the OEM version from Ricks? If so, you still might be covered.

I got a new one from the dealer with the upgraded bracket, wiring harness, and new style R/R. I gave them my old Ricks units even though it still worked. Because its free and I would rather have the triumph upgrade done with the relocation bracket to move the R/R away from the engine.
