2012 Triumph Daytona 675, 675R Recalled in Canada for Missing Throttle Cable Guide
Transport Canada announced a recall for the 2012 Triumph Daytona 675 and 675R because certain units may be missing a throttle cable guide.
Without the guide, the throttle cable may get stuck in the steering stop, preventing the throttle from opening or closing properly. Such a situation could result in a loss of propulsion or, if the throttle is stuck open, could make it difficult to slow or stop the motorcycle.
Triumph dealers will inspected recalled units and if necessary install a throttle cable guide. In some cases, the throttle cables themselves may also be replaced.
According to the Transport Canada, the recall affects 61 units in Canada. No recall has been announced yet for the U.S., but Triumph North America operates in both Canada and the U.S., so a similar recall is expected from the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in the next few weeks. We will provide an update if and when NHTSA announces a recall.
