Triumph has issued a global recall over wiring issues for its 900cc Street Twin and Street Scrambler models.
The issue revolves around the movement of the handlebars which inputs could damage the wiring harness over time due to a misrouted harness.
The wiring harness may make contact with the lower lug on the main frame headstock.
Constant steering inputs may cause the harness to rub the lug, resulting in wear and potential damage to the wiring over time. The engine may end up stalling unexpectedly.
The official Australian Competition and Consumer Commission notice has not yet been released but Triumph Australia has attempted to get in touch with owners to alert them to the issue.
Since some owners may have sold their bikes privately, we have published this recall notice to advise those new owners.
The issues affects 2019 and 2020 Street Twin and Scrambler models.
Owners are asked to book non their bike wth a Triumph dealer to have a VIN plate protector installed that will reroute the harness.
They will also inspect the harness and replace it if necessary, free of charge.
The “Bonneville” range has been the subject of several embarrassing recalls since they were introduced in 2016:
- T100 and T120 for a sticky throttle;
- Thruxtons over side stand spring issues
- Triumph Street Twin, Bonneville T100 and Bonneville T100 Black, as well as the 1200cc Bonneville T120 Black, Thruxton 1200 and Thruxton 1200R models for fuel tank wiring;
- Street Cup over a hazard lights fault; and
- All recent-model Triumphs because of a missing noise label, leaving them non-compliant.
- Various 900cc and 1200cc Bonneville models recalled over faulty electrics.
- Speed Twin recalled over coolant leak.
- 2019-2020 Speed Twin recalled over a loose ball joint in the gearshift lever linkage thanks to contaminated thread locking compound.
Even though manufacturers and importers usually contact owners when a recall is issued, the bike may have been sold privately to a rider unknown to the company.
If you believe there is an endemic problem with your bike that should be recalled, contact the ACCC on 1300 302 502.
