Triple Trouble post; (over on the dark site) : Triumph is recalling 4,696 MY 2004-2008 Rocket III and Rocket III Classic motorcycles. When the engine is returning to idle an unmodified motorcycle may stall. If the motorcycle stalls the rider will have to restart the engine increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and download new engine management software. The recall is expected to begin during October 2007. 07V-455
Personally, their engine management software (retune/detune) does nothing for me. I'd go right back to my current @$$ hauling tune. I won't waste my time. It is interesting to note the number of Rockets being recalled in the USA.
My dealer's service manager said they also are checking the stepper motor and adjusting if necessary under this recall. I wasn't going to have this done, but since it seems to be at least a bit more than blindly loading another tune, I think I will have it done. I'll probably take my laptop and load my tune back in before I leave their parking lot though!
