Center Stand Spring Recall is out!

Triumph has recalled 668 Tiger 800 and Tiger 800 XC (2010-2011) motorcycles due to center stand issues.

Triumph says the optional accessory center stand assembly on Triumph Tiger 800 and 800 XC motorcycles built from Sept. 2010 through June 2011 contains a defective return spring that may break. If the spring breaks, the center stand may unexpectedly drop and drag along the road surface, increasing the risk of a crash.

Dealers will replace the return spring and repair the affected motorcycles free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet reported an owner notifications schedule. Owners may contact Triumph Customer Service at 1-678-854-2010.

Triumph’s Safety recall is No. 430. Owners may also contact the Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or visit

Recall Is Offical

I wonder how many units are involved world wide.  This article says 1485 in the US alone.  Glad Triumph got the fix out there sooner than later.  I wonder if our data from our bikes may have helped?  Either way this is great news for the bike!


Triumph issued a recall for the 2011 and 2012 Tiger 800 and 800XC adventure tourers due to a bug in the engine management software.

According to documents released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Triumph Tigers’ 800cc Triple engine may stall during deceleration. Riders may also notice lower RPMs indicated on the tachometer at idle.

Triumph first received reports of an engine stalling in June. An investigation identified the engine management software as the source of the problem. Triumph developed a new software update that addresses the issue and began implementing it on units with VIN 514872 and later.

Dealers will install the updated engine management software onto the electronic control units on recalled units. The recall involves 1,485 units in the U.S.
