Suzuki Motorcycles Engine Fault Recall

More Australian recalls announced for Suzuki Motorcycles.

Suzuki Motorcycles Engine Fault Recall – the recall includes the popular Suzuki GSX650.

It’s been a bad week for Suzuki with further recalls announced through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).

Earlier in the week we brought you news of a breather hose issue on the Suzuki SFV650L4 & SFV650UL5 Gladius models.

It has now been found that several models, including the Suzuki SFV650L4, has a potential problem with the tappet hardening surface. It may wear due to contamination causing tappet and camshaft wear, and in the worst case scenario this may cause the engine to stop running.

Suzuki Motorcycles affected by the recall include:

  • SFV650L2, L3, L4
  • DL650L2, L3, L4
  • GSR750L3, L4, L5
  • GSX650L2, L3, L4
  • GSF650L2,
  • GSX1250L2, L4
  • GSF1250L2, L4
  • AN650L3, L4

Meantime, the UK110NE Address scooter has been recalled over a headlight bulb filament issue that could possibly cause a short circuit.

And the Suzuki DL1000A V-Strom L4, L5, L6 models have been recalled because some sections of the wiring loom might be susceptible to scuffing due to improper routing and some connectors may become corroded due to improper insulation.

This may lead to electrical failure, it may cause the engine to stop running, or the engine may not be able to be switched off.

The ACCC is advising that all affected vehicles should be taken to an authorised Suzuki dealer to have an inspection carried out and any counter measure parts fitted.
