2006-2009 Triumph Daytona 675 and Street Triple Recalled
Triumph is issuing a recall on the Daytona 675, the Street Triple and the Street Triple R for model years 2006-2009.
According to documents released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the regulator rectifier on the affected Triumph units may overheat, damaging its internal components. This may affect the regulator rectifier’s ability to control the charge capacity of the batteries, potentially leading the battery to become discharged completely.
The recalled motorcycles are equipped with regulator rectifiers produced by Kokusan. Later models use a component produced by Shindengen which have higher temperature tolerances than the Kokusan unit.
Triumph dealers will replace the Kokusan components on recalled motorcycles with the Shindengen components. The recall campaign affects 7,395 units of the Daytona 675 and 2,971 units of the Street Triple and Street Triple R.
