Chronology :

January 30, 2024: Suzuki Motor Corporation (SMC) received information from the North American distributor about an incompletely riveted drive chain installed on two GSX-8R motorcycles. SMC initiated an investigation to determine the cause and extent of the situation.

February 2, 2024: The drive chain manufacturer determined that they had produced 72 drive chain assemblies with unriveted chain links. Suzuki investigated application of the affected parts onto production motorcycles.

February 7, 2024: Because some motorcycles were equipped with drive chain assemblies manufactured without proper drive chain link riveting, Suzuki decided to conduct a safety recall to repair or replace the drive chain assembly.
