Suzuki Gsx-r Recall front brake master cylinder

Did not see this posted, but this might help some out with MC issues.... About freaking time Suzuki!!!!!

Have not seen it posted on the official Suzukicycles site, just a few message boards.
http://www.gixxer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=426850
http://www.sttforum.com/showthread.php?p=108268



Suzuki GSX-R RECALL:

any customers with the bikes listed below, please contact your local suzuki dealership. parts will be able to be ordered in starting 11-4-13.

"All new or Used 2004* to 2013 GSXR models"
1000 : 2005-2013
750 : 2004-2013
600 : 2004-2013

"Suzuki Motor Corporation has instituted a safety recall campaign to replace the front brake master cylinder. The brake piston inside the front brake master cylinder of some motorcycles may not have received adequate surface treatment to prevent corrosion. Corrosion of the brake piston generates gas, which may not be adequately purged from the master cylinder due to the side position location of the reservoir return port. To ensure customer safety and satisfaction, dealers will replace the front brake master cylinder and brake fluid.

Technical Service Bulletin:
Servicing information regarding this safety recall will be available in a Technical Service Bulletin the week of October 28, 2013.

Parts Availability:
Dealers will be able to order the necessary parts to perform this recall campaign beginning approximately the week of November 4, 2013. Adequate supplies of parts will be available at that time to ensure your ability to service all your affected units. Your dealership may immediately resume retail sales once the recall campaign is completed. "

Was junk. Hence everyone using the r6 mc.

I still wouldn't trust the fix. The brake fade is too great. Even the r6 one has some brake fade but a million times better than the suzuki's.

I'd say any Suzuki dealer, but I'd call and make sure they have the parts first.

Personally I would just upgrade it, Jimmy. The problems myself and many others came across on the stock one was under heavy braking the brakes would begin to fade, pretty drastic.

Imagine going 4th gear wide open into t3 at TWS (Texas World Speedway) and go for the brakes and it's fading. Not a good feeling, at all.

Fwiw, you can pick up a stock used one off a Yamaha pretty cheap. Shoot me a pm if interested and I'll see if I can't find you one.

Is it a straight swap? Will the aftermarket lever for my bike fit the Yamaha perch?

Yes, and no.

The master cylinder will bolt up, and the line and will fit.
If you're using your reservoir you'll have to adapt the bracket.
You'll need to do a small bit of electrical to adapt the brake switch wiring.
Your lever will not transfer.

The Nissin master cylinders on the Suzukis and Kawasakis have been notorious for fade/eventually failing, even under normal use.
I'm curious to see how the new cylinder holds up. Since it's under warranty, I'd have it changed and go from there.
