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:

  • 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 oilThe 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 filterReplace the oil filter every time you change the oil. Use Triumph part number T1218001.
Spark plugsUse NGK spark plugs with code CR9EIA9. Make sure they’re gapped to 0.9mm with an appropriate spark plug gap tool.
Air filterUse Triumph part number T2200987 or K&N equivalent part TB-6713.
CoolantTriumph uses Hybrid Organic Acid Technology coolant with a 50% ethylene glycol mix. Zerex G05 is a HOAT coolant that meets this spec.
Brake padsFront: EBC part FA447HH (you need two sets)
Rear: EBC part FA213HH (just need one set)
Consumables for Triumph Street Triple R

You also need the following general consumables for servicing your Street Triple R.

Brake fluidA DOT-4 lubricant is recommended. I recommend Castrol Dot 4 full synthetic — cost-effective and good.
Chain lubricantThe 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 lubricantRemember to lubricate your clutch cable. Protect All Cable Life is a good general-purpose lubricant.
GreaseGet a good lithium soap based grease for lubricating major components like your side stand, centre stand, and bearings.
General motorcycle consumables — Brake fluid, chain lube, clutch lube, and grease

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.
