Triumph Recalls 2010 Sprint GT & ST Models

Triumph 2010 Sprint ST
Triumph has issued a recall of its 2010 model Sprint ST and GT motorcycles after finding the length of the plug/dipstick to be incorrect. The improper length has led to the inability to determine proper fluid levels, and as a result engines may be compromised by having insufficient oil levels. This increases the risk for engine seizures and may lead to a loss of control while riding.
 
In order to rectify the situation Triumph asks that dealers replace the engine oil plug/dipstick. The service will be performed free of charge for Triumph owners, with the service beginning in December of 2010. Owners may contact Triumph Motorcycle at 678-539-8782 or The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153).

Not a big deal, but good for them.

Wrong oil level may cause crash? That's nothing compared to the new Vmax's recall for the YCCT system. "In the worst case scenario, the engine idle speed may become suspended around 3000rpm while riding, even if the throttle twist grip is released".
