Suzuki Recalls 23,000 GSX-R Models For Possible Defective Chain Adjuster

The following report is filed with the NHTSA:

Report Receipt Date: October 7, 2014

NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V629000

Component(s): Drive chain adjuster

Potential Number of Units Affected: 23,073

Manufacturer: Suzuki Motor of America, Inc.

2011-2014 GSX-R750 models affected. 2011 shown here.

SUMMARY: Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. (Suzuki) is recalling certain model year 2011-2014 GSX-R750 and 2009-2014 GSX-R1000 motorcycles. If a gear is missed while upshifting, the strain applied to the drive chain after the next shift may cause the rear axle to move, damaging the left-side drive chain adjuster.

2009-2014 GSX-R1000 models affected. 2012 shown here.

CONSEQUENCE: If the drive chain adjuster gets damaged, the drive chain may come off causing loss of power to the rear wheel, and increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY: Suzuki will notify owners, and dealers will replace the left-side chain adjuster with an improved part. The recall is expected to begin on October 17, 2014. Owners may contact Suzuki customer service at 1-714-572-1490. Suzuki's numbers for this recall are 2A40, 2A41, 2A42 and 2A43.

NOTES: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to
