Triumph has advised its dealers to replace the braking systems on some Sprint ST and Speed Triple 1050 models.

An e-mail was sent to all Triumph dealers which acknowledges customer dissatisfaction and advises dealers to enhance the much-maligned braking system, and has been leaked to MCN.

The document reveals Triumph’s recommendation to fit: “a new master cylinder” for the Sprint ST and: “the installation of coated calliper pistons to the front brake callipers” on the Speed Triple.

However, when MCN revealed the firm was under investigation by Trading Standards in our December 13 issue, Triumph failed to acknowledge there was a problem with the Sprint ST and Speed Triple brakes.

For the full story see next week’s MCN out on Wednesday, January 24, 2007.
