Motorcycle Recall - Suzuki Recall

By Walter F. Kern

NHTSA Campaign ID:  15V854000
Component:  Electrical System
Manufacturer:  Suzuki Motor of America, Inc.
Recall Date: 12/18/2015
Potential Number of Units Affected: 2,404
Defect Summary:
Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. (Suzuki) is recalling certain model year 2014 DL1000 motorcycles manufactured January 17, 2014, to June 5, 2014, and 2015 DL1000 motorcycles manufactured November 5, 2014, to February 6, 2015. The ignition switch terminals of the affected vehicles may corrode if they come into contact with liquid such as salt water. As a result, the motorcycle's electrical power may be disconnected or the switch may be bypassed, preventing the engine from being shut off with the ignition key.
Consequence Summary:
If electrical power is lost, the engine would stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary:
Suzuki will notify owners, and dealers will install a cover for the ignition switch connector, and any corroded ignition lead wire and wire harnesses will be replaced. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 22, 2016. Owners may contact Suzuki customer service at 1-714-996-7040. Suzuki's number for this recall is 2A53.
