Suzuki Recall (Details inside)

I just received a letter today from the Suzuki Dealership. I wish they sent this letter a while back when I had problems with my bike and had to spend $50 bucks at Motorcycles Unlimited so they can tell me everyone was looking ok

this is typed word for word

SAFETY RECALL CAMPAIGN

AN400 K8/K9, DL1000 K8/K9, GSF 1250S/SAK K8/K9, GSX1300BK/BKAK8, GSX1300R K8/K9, GSX650FK K8/K9, GSX-R 600 K8/K9, GSX-R750 K8/K9, SFV650 K9, VL800/B/T/CK8/K9, VLR1800/TK8/TK9, VZ1500K9

Some rectifier assembles installed on the affected models may have a condition which can cuase internal circuit board to fail in service due to excessive heat. Should this occur, insufficient charging current will be avaible to the battery. If the battery becomes excessively discharged, the engine may not be able to start, or may stall. Engine stalling while riding may increase the risk of a crash. To ensure safely and customer satisfaction we are initiating a safety recall campaigning to replace these effective assemblies.

1st I hear about a suzuki recall today.

But seruously, I had my 1st bike which was an R6 die on me on the fast lane on 35 with no shoulder. Just about a foot between the line and the wall. I jumped off and left it leaning against the wall. No fun to have a bike die on the road.

It turned out that my bike (09 750)was one of those that were affected with this problem. I took my bike to Motorcycles Unlimited and had it repaired in early February. Cost of repair was a little more than $700. When picking up the bike from Motorcycles Unlimited, Patrick said that a few bikes with the same problem have already been in the shop shortly after the repair on mine. I just received this letter a few days ago, the letter mentions reimbursement by Suzuki, I'm giving them a call today and hopefully I can get a few pennies out of them. Anyways, still excited with the quality work at Motorcycles Unlimited!

I wouldn't know that for sure, but it never hurts to ask. I had my bike repaired by Motorcycles Unlimited prior the recall being released by Suzuki. However, I don't think Suzuki will allow that anyway. When I spoke with them on the phone they specifically asked if I took the bike to a Suzuki dealership, of course I had to say no. They said then Suzuki doesn't know if I had an aftermarket part installed to replace the damaged one or not. I spoke with Patrick, he said that the part was a Suzuki part and provided the part number. Suzuki advised me I would still need to bring the bike into a Suzuki dealership so they can verify that the correct part was installed if I were to receive any kind of reimbursement from Suzuki.

Hopefully when I get back into town this weekend I can find out what the Suzuki dealer says.

I called Stubbs 59 to schedule an appointment. They said that I needed to bring it by so they could get the vin, then they would order the part. I would have to leave it there for 3 days then they would install it. I asked him why I couldn't just give him the vin or ride the bike over to give the vin, then he'd order the part. He said I'd have to leave it there (probably because it's labeled a safety recall) and that it would take 3 days because they were backed up.

No thanks. I'll find someone else.

Is there a way to do a diagnostic test to see if this problem exists before replacing the part or are there other tests that can be run to see if this problem exists? I had a friend who was riding and suddenly his bike stopped which caused another friend to rear end him. It was a bad crash but no one knew why he suddenly stopped and he has no memory of the crash. Got the letter a few days ago and still have the bike.
