Timing chain, sprockets, blades and tensioner are constructed and engineered under substandard guidelines causing failure of one or all timing components and engine failure which could result in the loss of vehicle control and cause a vehicle crash. triumph has updated the design and construction of these components in later model years but has not issued a recall for the earlier years containing the faulty components. instances of failure have occurred anywhere from 1,000 to 35,000 miles on the vehicle and has been documented numerously on triumph rocket iii owners group websites under the term "paint can rattle" as the sound that is produced by the failing components sounds similar to the ball bearing rattle inside a spray can of paint. several failures have happened outside of manufacturer warranty and the rebuild cost of $2,000+ has been pushed on to the customer. it is understandable that a timing chain is a consumable item much like tires and brakes but complete sprocket and engine failure should not be considered consumable.
