IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL

This Notice Applies to Your Suzuki Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)

NTHSA Recall # 18V-064

 

Jan 25, 2018

Dear Suzuki Owner:

This notice is sent to you in accordance with the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act.

Suzuki Motor Corporation has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 20172018 GSX-RIOOO/A and GSXRIOOORA/RZ motorcycles. The defect is described below.

 

What is the problem?

When upshifting between first and second gear, if the rider fails to engage second gear, a neutral condition will exist and continued opening of the throttle will very high engine RPM. If the rider shifts into second gear without disengaging the clutch under the very high engine RPM condition, an excessive load can be applied to the powertrain, which can cause the drive chain to stretch and, in the worst case, the drive chain can come off or break. If the drive chain comes off or breaks, the motorcycle will lose power, increasing the risk of a crash.

For your safety and customer satisfaction, we are initiating a safety recall campaign to replace the Engine Control Module (ECM) and inspect and, if necessary, replace the drive chain and sprockets. The new ECM has been programmed to prevent very high rpm under the conditions described above.

WARNING

Operating your motorcycle without having the recall service performed may increase the risk of a crash.

To minimize the risk of a crash, please do not ride nor allow anyone else to ride your motorcycle until this recall has been completed.

ABUS Hardened Steel 8KS 6 Foot x 5/16" Thick Square Security Chain for Bikes, Containers, Trailers, ATV's, Motorcycles and Personal/Industrial Property
  • Premium Quality: Our security chains are made of hardened steel with a special anti-corrosion coating which makes them ideal for outdoor use. Each link has a thickness of 5/16", inside height of 1 3/8" and inside width of 1/2".This chain requires 6 tons of cutting force to break through the hardened steel.
  • Theft Deterrence: Our chain cannot be compromised by typical aggressive burglary attacks. Each individual link is unique in that the shape is squared rather than round. The squared link construction makes it almost impossible for theft tools to get a secure grip on the chain to cut. The thick hardened steel is extra resistant to sawing and the welded finish makes prying insurmountable.
  • Secure Anything: ABUS square link security chains are utilized by both industrial and consumer users. Our customers trust this chain to secure their commercial/residential properties, containers, bikes, gates, fences, trailers, ATV’s, motorcycles and much more.
  • Scratch Resistant: Traditional security chains expose your items/property to potential damages and scratches when in use. ABUS security chains feature a nylon sleeve to protect your property from scratches and damages while in use.
  • Synonymous with Security: ABUS has been manufacturing and innovating security technology since 1924. When it comes to protecting lives and valuables, ABUS provides security solutions to help you feel safe and secure.
