Motorcycle Recall - Suzuki

NHTSA Campaign ID:  12V038000
Component:  Exterior Lighting: Brake Lights: Switch
Manufacturer:  American Suzuki Motor Corp.
Recall Date: 02/02/2012
Potential Number of Units Affected: 1396
Defect Summary:
Suzuki is recalling certain model year 2012 AN400, AN650, and DL650 scooters and motorcycles manufactured prior to December 17, 2011, because the lever-mounted brake light actuating switch(es) may fail.
Consequence Summary:
On the AN400 and AN650 models, failure of the switches will prevent the scooters from starting. On all of the affected models, failure of the brake light switch(es) may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when a scooter or motorcycle is braking, thereby increasing the risk of a crash with a trailing vehicle.
Corrective Summary:
Suzuki will notify owners, and Suzuki distributors will replace the brake light actuating switch, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or about February 13, 2011. Owners may contact Suzuki at 1-714-996-7040.
