This is the maintenance schedule with associated service intervals for the Triumph Street Triple S 660 made from 2017-2019. It’s also known as the Street Triple 660.
The 2017 Triumph Street Triple S 660 is different to the 765cc version released in some markets.
The 660 is a reduced-capacity version that makes 70 kW (94 hp) in basic trim, but can be detuned to 35 kW (47 hp) for A2/LAMS-compliance for learners. Importantly, the factory can also apply a de-restrictor kit to bring it back up to full-power once you’ve cleared your license’s restrictions.
Here are all the Triumph Street Triple motorcycles, in case you’re looking for another one:
- Triumph Street Triple 675 Gen 1 (2007-2012) — the original! Round-eyes, non-adjustable suspension.

What you need to service the Triumph Street Triple S 660
The following is a list of specific consumables for the Triumph Street Triple series of motorcycles.
|Part||Triumph Street Triple 660 spec.|
|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 4T 10W-50 (full synthetic).|
|Oil filter||Replace the oil filter every time you change the oil. Use Triumph part number T1218001. You can also use HifloFiltro part HF204RC.|
|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 T2200957 or K&N equivalent part TB-7617.|
|Brake fluid||Change your brake fluid every 2 years. Use Castrol DOT 4 for Triumph motorcycles.|
|Coolant||Change your coolant every 4 years. Triumph uses Hybrid Organic Acid Technology coolant with a 50% ethylene glycol mix. Zerex G05 is a HOAT coolant that meets this spec and that many Triumph owners use.|
|Brake pads||Front: Triumph part T2020377, or EBC part FA226HH (you need two sets)|
Rear: Triumph part T2024901, EBC part FA213HH (just need one set)
EBC HH brake pads give better bite and feel and last longer, though over time they may wear your rotors more quickly than softer pads.
|Chain||Maintain your chain with a Motul chain care kit.|

General information about the Triumph Street Triple S 660 (2017-2019)
The Triumph Street Triple has been a long-standing mainstay of Triumph’s line-up since launched over a decade earlier as the 675cc naked roadster based off the then Daytona 675.
The Street Triple is alongside the Speed Triple, which is a go-fast bike; the Street Triple is a “street”-able sportbike.
Which really is just nomenclature, as both bikes are both fast and street-able.
The Street Triple, with its smaller capacity engine, is more revvy, but not highly strung like a 600cc-class sportbike. It’s high-power, but not as high-power as sportbikes either. And it has low-down torque, but not as much as the Speed Triple.
So the Triumph Street Triple S is another incarnation of that same spirit that has imbued all Street Triples since launch in 2007 — comfortable, quick, and very high-quality.
In 2017, Triumph increased the displacement of their engines from 675cc to 765cc, but also released a 660cc version that’s restrict-able for certain markets where you have maximum power and sometimes maximum engine capacity for learners. This is the Triumph Street Triple S 660.
To confuse things slightly, there were two versions of the Street Triple S released in 2017 — a 765cc version and the 660cc version. The 660cc version was restrictable to lower power output (35 kW / 47 hp) for compliance in Europe/Australia and a few other places.
The Triumph Street Triple S 660 is lower spec in a number of ways:
- Engine capacity: The 660 has a 660 cc engine. It’s still a DOHC liquid-cooled triple.
- Front brakes — Nissin two-piston calipers, vs. the Brembo 4-piston calipers on the R and RS (in two different variations)
- Suspension — Non-adjustable KYB suspension. The others all get a degree of adjustability.
- Instruments — the Street Triple S has an analogue + LCD display, compared to the TFT instruments on the R and RS
Despite this, the Triumph Street Triple 660 is a high-quality motorcycle. Jumping on board, you quickly forget that it’s a “learner” with its aggressive riding position, rev-happy engine, and ample torque down low. Needless to say, this is a bike that can get you into trouble.
Unlike many other restricted bikes (like the Honda CBR650R in Australia for example), it’s relatively easy to de-restrict the Street Triple 660 — Triumph can do it for you themselves.
The updated 2020 Triumph Street Triple S 660 has better suspension, an updated display, and more power from its engine.
