Triumph recalls Sprint GT, Tiger 800 for top box fix


Triumph Motorcycles America LTD has just issued a recall for certain model year 2011-2012 Sprint GTs, Tiger 800s and Tiger 800XCs. The bikes in question were manufactured from June 2010 through June 2011.

The company says that the recall is due to the top box locking handle, which is missing a clip on the locking mechanism. This may lead to the top box detaching from the machine, thus increasing the risk of a crash. The potential number of vehicles affected is 134.

Dealers will install new fitment clips in order to align the rack and pinion mechanism. Call Triumph for more information at 678-539-8782.
