New Triumphs recalled for ECU problem

Faulty engine control unit may prompt excessive fuelling

SEVERAL 2014 and 2015 Triumph motorcycles are being recalled due to an issue with the engine control unit (ECU).

The recall states that certain motorcycles may experience an ‘unintended activation’ of one of the fuel injectors because of a faulty ECU. This could result in the engine either not starting, or if already running normally, losing ignition in one cylinder due to excessive fuelling.

Models affected by the recall are the: America, Bonneville, Bonneville T100, Rocket III Roadster, Rocket III Touring, Scrambler, Speedmaster, Thruxton, Thunderbird, Thunderbird Storm, Tiger 800 and Tiger 800XC.

A total of 256 bikes have been affected by the recall - Triumph UK has written out to owners and will replace the faulty ECU free of charge at an authorised dealer.
