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 ).
