RECALL NEWS: Suzuki Recalls 2,410 V-Strom 1000 (DL1000) ADVs for Wiring Harness, Poss

©Motorcyclist


2014-2016 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 (DL1000) on the safety recall list for a wiring harness that may short against the fuel tank.




The following report is filed with the NHTSA:

Report Receipt Date: December 18, 2015
NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V851000
Component(s): Electrical system
Potential Number of Units Affected: 2,410
Manufacturer: Suzuki Motor of America, Inc.

THE RECALL: Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. (Suzuki) is recalling certain model year 2014 Suzuki DL 1000 motorcycles manufactured from January 17, 2014, to June 5, 2014, 2015 Suzuki DL1000 motorcycles manufactured from November 4, 2014, to February 6, 2015 and 2016 Suzuki DL1000 motorcycles manufactured from June 11, 2015, to July 15, 2015. The affected motorcycles have a wiring harness that may rub against the bottom of the fuel tank. Vibration from riding may cause the wiring insulation to wear off, allowing a bare wire to short circuit against the fuel tank.

WHAT COULD HAPPEN: A short circuit may cause the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

THE FIX: Suzuki will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the motorcycles and reroute the wiring harnesses as necessary. Any damaged harnesses will be repaired or replaced. This work will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on January 22, 2016. Owners may contact Suzuki customer service number at 1-714-572-1490. Suzuki's number for this recall is 2A53.

MORE RECALL INFORMATION: 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 safercar.gov.
