An electrical error is prompting a recall from one motorcycle manufacturer.

Triumph Motorcycles America has announced that it is recalling certain model year 2016 Street Twin motorcycles.

The wiring in the fuel tank that powers the fuel pump on the recalled motorcycles may have damaged insulation and, as a result, fuel may enter the wiring and travel down the harness, outside of the tank and drip from the connector at the main harness.

A fuel leak, in the presence of an ignition source such as an electrical short, increases the risk of a fire.

About 120 motorcycles are potentially affected by this issue.

Triumph will notify owners of the recalled motorcycles, and dealers will inspect the fuel pump harness and replace it as needed, based on its batch number. All repairs related to this recall will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in April 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Triumph customer service at (678) 854-2010.
