Triumph Street Triple S 660 (2020+) Maintenance Schedule
This is the maintenance schedule with associated service intervals for the Triumph Street Triple S (which people call the Street Triple S 660, to distinguish it from the former 765cc Street Triple S released in some markets), revamped from 2020 from the previous gen 2017-2019 Street Triple S.
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.
- Triumph Street Triple R 675 (2009-2012) — fully adjustable forks, 4-piston calipers. Bug-eyes from 2012
- Triumph Street Triple 675 Gen 2 (2013-2016) — bigger discs, redesigned lights (“bug-eyes”)
- Triumph Street Triple R 675cc Gen 2 (2013-2016) — fully adjustable forks, 4 piston calipers
- Triumph Street Triple S 660 (2017-2019) — 35 kW/47 hp, de-restrictable to 70 kW/94 hp. KYB non-adjustable forks, Nissin 2-piston front calipers
- Triumph Street Triple S 765 Gen 3 (2017-2019) — 83 kW/111 hp peak, Preload-adjustable Showa SFF, preload-adjustable Showa shock, Nissin 2-piston brakes
- Triumph Street Triple R Gen 3 (2017+) — 87 kW/116 hp peak, fully adjustable Showa suspension front and rear, Brembo M 4.32 4-piston brakes

The A2/LAMS-compliant 2020+ Triumph Street Triple S 660 has a restricted and reduced capacity 660cc engine. It makes a peak of 40 kW (52 hp) at 11250 rpm through the rev range, with peak torque of 60 Nm at 5250 rpm, giving it a lively ride. Peak power (still in restricted form) is about 10% higher than the earlier version. Many people who try it out think “I can’t believe this is learner-legal!”
The fun thing about the 2020+ Street Triple S is that it can be unlocked by a Triumph dealer for a nominal fee so you can re-register it as an unrestricted bike. Unrestricted, peak power jumps to a respectable 70 kW (94 hp) at the same rpm.
The maintenance schedule for the Street Triple S 660 very similar to those for other motorcycles with similar engines in the Triumph Street Triple Series, like the full spec Street Triple S 765.

What you need to service the Triumph Street Triple S 660 (2020+)
Firstly, you need to see if you have the basic motorcycle maintenance tools — nothing shocking, just things like a paddock stand, oil filter wrench, and so on.
The following is a list of specific consumables for the Triumph Street Triple S 660 (2020+).
|Part||Triumph Street Triple 660 (2020+) 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 0.9 mm 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 HD4X, a HOAT (Hybrid Organic Acid Technology) coolant with a 50% ethylene glycol mix. The “hybrid” part is that it contains silicates. You can use a silicate-enriched HOAT equivalent, like PEAK OET European Vehicles Blue. See our analysis of equivalents to Triumph HD4X|
|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 (2020+)
The Triumph Street Triple has been a mainstay of Triumph’s line-up since launched over a decade earlier.
The core of the Street Triple has always been something like “a 600cc-class engine but in a sporty (and yet more upright) body, with tuning for more midrange torque rather than an uncompromising top-end focus”.
The Street Triple used to be the road-going companion to the Daytona 675 race bike, but since the Daytona is now a highly exclusive machine, the Street Triple (in its various incarnations) has taken over duty as both a road and track weapon.
The Street Triple S is the entry-level bike of the range that goes all the way up to the 765cc Street Triple RS, which is basically track-spec but with road-going gear.
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 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.
As of 2020 there’s just the Street Triple S in 660cc configuration (so we don’t have to say Street Triple S 660 but we want to be absolutely clear).
The Triumph Street Triple S 660 is lower spec in a number of ways:
- Engine capacity: The 660 has a 660 cc engine, compared with the 765cc motor on the bigger R and RS bikes. 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 — The front fork is a non-adjustable Showa shock, and the rear is a Showa shock adjustable for preload only. This contrasts with the fully-adjustable suspension on both the R and RS bikes.
- 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.
The updated 2020 Triumph Street Triple S 660 has has new bodywork, twin LED headlights with LED DRLs, new mirrors, and new colors.
