Description du Défaut: It has been discovered that the dip stick is too long and therefore does not accurately show the correct oil level. The correct oil capacity has been added to each affected bike by the factory, but any dealer or customer checking the oil level using the dip stick will believe the engine had been incorrectly overfilled with oil.
The dealer or customer would then drain oil from the engine to agree with the dip stick.
Draining the oil will result in the engine operating below required oil levels.

If left untreated, the engine may seize as a result of the oil level falling below the minimum required to safely operate the engine. This may result in damage to the engine and it’s components.
Recommandations / Avertissements: Owners will be contacted by mail.

Owners are advised to contact their nearest authorised Triumph delearship for replacement of the engine oilfiller plug/dipstick with a new unit.
