Has any specific fault reason been given for the recall?

something to do with an internal fault which causes the shock to go hard and effects the handling of the bike..so Triumph tech tells me...

Well mine also fits the numbers..remember me telling you guys how bad the rear shock is..

I will contact my dealer but won't bother fitting a new oem shock as I'll have my hyperpro within 10 days..

It'd be interesting to know if you guys with ones that have been changed notice any difference.  :018:

Interesting reading on p.188 of April Bike (small review article on Tiger) concerning rear shocks and recalls in relation to dodgy rear shocks on Tigers, Sprints and Speed Triples.  Is there a generalised rear shock problem for Triumph? :005:

Collected my trumpet 13/12/07. Put the VIN number in the Triumph website over the weekend and mine too needs a replacement shock.

Waiting callback from dealer to book it in.

Can't say I've noticed anything up with the handling, but a bit miffed as I only had her serviced weekend before!

I'll let you know if she feels any different.

I posted elsewhere about the corrosion I had on my shock...Triumph had ahgreed to replace the old one under warranty and I was all set to go in last saturday to get the replacement fitted...only to find out from the dealer that the replacement they had sent was also faulty and due for a recall.

So I am returning this saturday for a new, new shock absober, which doesn't fall into the same category apparently.

If you've followed me this far.......

This would suggest that they are not simply replacing with the same old thing, but with something slightly different.

I'll ask my friend the Triumph mechanic and see if he knows for sure.

Got the official letter from Triumph today, but dealer was already ahead of them anyway so sorted  :028:

Not sure what Im going to do ? I dont want the rear shock now as I will soon be receiving a lovely gleaming Penske 8983 built to my specification.

Its easy to fit myself so there is little point in getting the dealer to do it. Wonder if I can get an 'in kind' payment as Triumph dont need to supply a shock and the dealer does not need payment for fitting ??
