This is the maintenance schedule with associated service intervals for the Triumph Street Triple R motorcycles.
It’s very similar to those for other motorcycles with similar engines in the Triumph Street Triple Series (like the Triumph Street Triple RS).
This maintenance schedule applies to the following models:
- 2017 Triumph Street Triple R
- 2018 Triumph Street Triple R
- 2019 Triumph Street Triple R
- 2020 Triumph Street Triple R
What you need to service the Triumph Street Triple R
The following is a list of specific consumables for the Triumph Street Triple series of motorcycles.
|Engine oil||The manual suggests semi or fully synthetic 10W/40 or 10W/50 motorcycle engine oil which meets specification API SH (or higher) and JASO MA, such as Castrol Power 1 Racing 4T 10W-40 (fully synthetic) engine oil, sold as Castrol Power RS Racing 4T 10W-40 (fully synthetic) in some countries.|
|Oil filter||Replace the oil filter every time you change the oil. Use Triumph part number T1218001.|
|Spark plugs||Use NGK spark plugs with code CR9EIA9. Make sure they’re gapped to 0.9mm with an appropriate spark plug gap tool.|
|Air filter||Use Triumph part number T2200987 or K&N equivalent part TB-6713.|
|Coolant||Triumph uses Hybrid Organic Acid Technology coolant with a 50% ethylene glycol mix. Zerex G05 is a HOAT coolant that meets this spec.|
|Brake pads||Front: EBC part FA447HH (you need two sets)|
Rear: EBC part FA213HH (just need one set)
You also need the following general consumables for servicing your Street Triple R.
|Brake fluid||A DOT-4 lubricant is recommended. I recommend Castrol Dot 4 full synthetic — cost-effective and good.|
|Chain lubricant||The chain needs to be lubricated every 800 km/500 miles (or more, if it gets wet/dirty). Motul’s chain lube is good. Make sure you have the right applicator brush, and a rear stand, like this lightweight and well-priced Vortex race stand.|
|Clutch cable lubricant||Remember to lubricate your clutch cable. Protect All Cable Life is a good general-purpose lubricant.|
|Grease||Get a good lithium soap based grease for lubricating major components like your side stand, centre stand, and bearings.|

General information about the Triumph Street Triple R
The Street Triple R now comes with fully adjustable Showa shocks, a new up/down quick-shifter, and Pirelli Rosso III tires as stock. The quick-shifter, in particular, seems to have been a common request from owners, so it’s nice that it has been added.
With a higher capacity ‘Daytona’ derived 765cc triple engine for more power, performance and torque, the Street Triples deliver up to 123PS peak power at 11,700 rpm, an increase of 16% on the previous generation.
The three ride modes (Sport, Street, and Rain) are carried over from the old model, along with ABS and traction control.
I was happy to see a low ride height variant debut for shorter riders. Maintenance for the low ride height version is the same, by the way.
Combined with more state-of-the-art technology, sharper styling, a more aggressive and athletic poise and the highest specification suspension, chassis and tyres ever.
