One thought on “Triumph recalls motorcycles

  1. Having problems with neutral switch on 2012 TR Scrambler. (5000 miles) never in rain, never power washed. Bike starts and needs excessive revs to stay running. Now replacing all safety switches, battery. Very disappointing as bike has been very reliable for almost 4 years and my buddy has a TR circa 2001 w/o any issues.
