Cam Bucket Service Bulletin
« on: January 17, 2013, 11:31:35 AM »
Some may be aware that my bike is in for a replacement ignition barrel under warranty.

The dealer has just called me to advise that there is also a recall just announced (not service bulletin but recall) on early VIN numbers to have the cam buckets replaced due to excessive clearance and noise. It doesn't affect all bikes, my guess is launch and early builds are affected.

They are doing mine at the same time as the ignition and lock set, I expect to get it back early next week and will report my opinions on noise improvement as soon as I can.

EDIT: THIS IS A SERVICE BULLETIN AND NOT A RECALL!! MISINFORMED ORIGINALLY SORRY.

As not all the dealers informed as we expect, is there any document available somewhere supporting this recall?

I will find out what I can when I collect my bike, he said he has only just been told and will do both jobs at same time.

Thanks, as these rumors flooded this forum about Triumph assembling repair kits, your dealer already has all the parts in? I guess you're from England (I'm on Tapatalk - don't see your location)

Im in Wales and the parts are on the way from the factory for delivery tomorrow morning. It is a two and a half hour job according to Triumph but is more likely to take around four hours I'm told.

Of course the best thing would be to have the VIN range concerned by this recall (mine started to rattle recently)...

OK Just come off the phone from Triumph Head Office Tech support.    Here is the wording.  NOT a RECALL but a
SERVICE BULLETIN.

My Vin Number is included  :084:  and I need to but not an urgent problem book the bike in for the work.


Hope this helps.   I bought my bike in April.   Ken.

Recalls are their for safety related defect..brakes & steering etc
Service Bulletins / product updates for in service modification & rework for non safety faults
