2010 Triumph Sprint GT/ST Recalled for Dipstick Length
According to the safety recall on the official website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Triumph reveals the recall refers to 216 units that could endanger the riders’ lives.
“Triumph is recalling certain model year 2010 Sprint ST and GT motorcycles. The plug/disptick is of an incorrect length. As a result, the accuracy of the dipstick for measuring adequate levels of oil may be compromised and adequate oil levels may not be maintained,” the notification posted on the NHTSA website stated.
“In adequate oil levels may cause the engine bay to seize leading to a loss of control of the vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash,” the report stated.
The manufacturer, however, did not provide an owner notification schedule yet, but the recall is expected to begin sometime this month. However, owners of the models in question may also contact Triumph at 678-539-8782. Just as expected, all operations will be conducted free of charge through Triumph's authorized US dealership network.
“Dealers will replace the engine oil/dipstick fitted to the clutch cover. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during December 2010,” the recall concluded.
