The Ohlins TTX36 rear shock recall has claimed another OEM with Transport Canada announcing a recall on the 2014-2015 Triumph Daytona 675R. This follows other recalls for the same issue affecting the Yamaha YZF-R1M and Honda CBR1000RR SP and Ohlins’ own recall for aftermarket TTX36 shocks.
Transport Canada’s announcement originally listed the Street Triple R as being included in the recall, but it uses Kayaba suspension components instead of Ohlins. A quick call to Transport Canada confirmed that the announcement was in error and the recall should instead list the Speed Triple R which does use an Ohlins TTX36. Transport Canada has since corrected its posting. (ed- You’re welcome, Transport Canada.)
As with the other recalls, the issue stems from insufficient tightening of the piston rod nut on affected rear shocks. The nut may loosen and may cause a loss of rear suspension.
Dealers will inspect recalled units and, if necessary, replace the rear shock absorber with a correctly manufactured part.
The Canadian recall affects 41 units. As of this writing, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has yet to announce a similar recall for the Triumph models but we expect a U.S. recall to come soon. UPDATE: NHTSA has now announced a recall affecting 566 units of the Daytona 675 and Speed Triple.
