I had a letter through the door over the weekend from Triumph recalling my Street Twin for a possible safety issue where the clutch cable wears and can eventually cut through the wiring loom at the headstock Shocked. I had a look and can see what they mean, the clutch cable is very tight pressing against the loom, although mine is low mileage so I don't think it's had chance to do much wearing through it yet.

If you've got a Street Twin / T100 / T120 and had it from new, this probably isn't news, but otherwise might be worth checking out - worst case scenario is it cuts the engine! The repair is apparently only 30 minutes and obviously is carried out for free.

Thanks for the warning.

Will contact local dealer about mine.

Mine went in yesterday. Took all of 10 minutes; it's a tiny modification. The clutch cable isn't pressed as hard against the wiring loom now though.

I think Triumph are great for service. I bought a new Tiger (900) from a dealer in Melton Mowbray - long since closed - yet got a letter from Webbs of Lincoln, who are my closest Triumph dealer, after a couple of years asking me to bring it in for warranty/recall work. Think it was something in the engine control unit.

They may often cost a bit, but you get what you pays for , and I was impressed.

Having said that, when my 4 year old Suzy RGV-250P went "pop" on Xmas day 1997, Suzuki agreed to repair it at no cost to me, so was happy with that, too.

Mind you - the mechanic was fekkin useless and it never felt the same again after - vibrated like, well, a vibrator! Laughing

Check the torque on the engine mounts. It is amazing how much difference to the vibes can be made if one or more of the mounting bolts are not tight enough.
