Good info. I wonder how the ECU would be replaced. I mean to say would it be a simple matter of unplugging the unit with a new one or replace the software on the old one. Just a bunch of kids down at the triumph dealer, like a lot of places. Sure hate to think about them getting in there.

Mine too, no recall (2014 R3T)
Probably helps if we read the article. :roll:

The recall has been announced in nations like Australia, UK and Canada while the rest of the markets including the US are expected to receive information regarding the exercise in due course.

Triumph: 2014 Rocket III Touring
Well, if you read the article, it was almost six months ago, and I would be reasonable to be checking (though maybe refraining from a flood of negative reports) if "due course" has yet happened.

Also, something to keep in mind, an ECU malfunction may not fall under the legal definition of "safety recall", so Triumph's "safety recall" website may not show anything. Just a thought.
