A small number of motorcycles within the affected VIN range that have been parked or stored for long periods of time may demonstrate noticeably increased rear brake pedal travel than that previously experienced prior to storage. In the event of an affected motorcycle being stored, the rear brake pedal must be depressed over a greater distance than prior to storage before the brake engages. A small number of motorcycles that are used regularly may also demonstrate smaller increases in brake pedal travel. Once engaged, rear brake performance is unaffected. Note: Front brakes are not affected and will remain fully functional.
On unrepaired affected motorcycles, where pre-ride safety checks have not been completed, this increased pedal travel can increase the risk of a crash.

Thanks for the info. After 3 rear brake repairs I can finally get it fixed for good. My Vin# came back with the info. The last rear brake job they did seems to have worked although it has a little too much play but it does work well. Thanks for the info Arek and LimyinTX.
I just ran my VIN and Triumph site states that there are no safety recall notices for my vehicle.
Aren't the rear master cylinders common to all of the R3's?
I've certainly had the soft pedal, more than once.
