NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number : 03V409000

Component: SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC

Potential Number Of Units Affected : 602

DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE REAR BRAKE RETAINING CLIP. OWNER NOTIFICATION IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING OCTOBER 2003. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT TRIUMPH AT 1-678-854-2010.

Important Note Regarding Auto Recalls
Frequently SafetyAlerts will list auto recalls before
your dealer will know about them. If you have a vehicle
affected by one of these posted recalls be sure and
write down the NHTSA 
CAMPAIGN ID Number.
If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
when the next update is due.
