2011-2012 Triumph Daytona 675 and Street Triple Recalled in Canada for Unapproved Wheel Bearings
Triumph has issued a recall for the Canadian market for the 2011-2012 Daytona 675 and Street Triple because the wheel bearings were provided by an unapproved supplier. At the moment, the recall is only for Canada and no recall has been announced for the U.S. market. Triumph North America operates both in Canada and the U.S. however, so a similar recall for the U.S. should be announced shortly by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
According to Transport Canada, certain units of the Daytona 675 and Street Triple may have been installed with wheel bearings from an unapproved supplier. Triumph lacks sufficient information about the wheel bearing supplier and its quality control standards and as such, Triumph is not entirely confident the bearings meet the durability and performance specifications required for the two models.
Triumph dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the wheel bearings on the 2011-2012 Daytona 675 and the Street Triple. The R versions of the two models do not seem to be affected. The Transport Canada recall affects 41 units.
We will provide an update if and when NHTSA announces a similar recall for the U.S.
