Motorcycle Equipment Recall - Suzuki Recall

By Walter F. Kern

NHTSA Campaign ID:  15E053000
Component:  Equipment
Manufacturer:  Suzuki Motor of America, Inc.
Recall Date: 06/23/2015
Potential Number of Units Affected: 308
Defect Summary:
Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. (Suzuki) is recalling certain Accessory Backrest Mounting Hardware kits, part numbers 990A0-75148 and 990A0-75148-BLK, manufactured March 1, 2012, to April 21, 2015. The affected hardware kits are for installing accessory backrests on 2006-2015 Suzuki VZR1800 (Boulevard M109R) motorcycles. The mounting hardware kits may include four 110mm bolts instead of two 75mm bolts and two 95mm bolts.
Consequence Summary:
If the backrest is installed with bolts that are too long, the mounting bolts may contact the rear tire, causing a loss of control and increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary:
Suzuki will notify owners, and dealers will correct the mounting hardware as needed, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in July 2015. Owners may contact Suzuki customer service at 1-800-444-5077.
