Electrical problem can cause stalling, increasing the risk of a crash

American Suzuki Motor Corp. is recalling 73,426 motorcycles from the model years 2008-1010. 

     Vehicle Make / Model:                Model Year(s):

     SUZUKI / AN400                           2008-2009

     SUZUKI / VZ1500                          2009-2010 

The vehicles are equipped with regulator/rectifier assemblies, Suzuki part numbers 32800-41f11, 32800-15h10, 32800-05h11, 32800-41g10, 32800-15h00, 32800-18h00, 32800-05g10, 32800-10g10, 32800-05h20, or 32800-06g01. 

Some regulator/rectifier assemblies were produced with insufficient adhesion between the power module (circuit board) and the rectifier case that contains a heat sink to dissipate heat. Due to insufficient adhesion, heat generated on the power module circuit board can cause the circuit board to deform, and lift of the case. 

This condition causes excessive heat on the circuit board and uncontrolled electric current output, which can result in insufficient charging current being provided to the motorcycle battery. This can cause discharge of the battery and can lead to engine stalling and/or a no-start condition. Engine stalling while riding can increase the risk of a crash. 

Suzuki will notify owners and Suzuki distributors will replace the regulator/rectifier with an improved part free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or about March 2, 2011. Owners may contact Suzuki at 1-714-996-7040. 

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go online.

Suzuki Recalls Grand Vitara, SX4

Drive belt problem could cause stalling, overheating, power steering failure

Suzuki is recalling about 32,000 2009-2011 Grand Vitaras and 2010-2011 SX4s.

The company said the tension adjuster pulley for the drive belt has a defective spring that can break, causing the belt to be adjusted improperly. This could lead to the engine overheating, the battery discharging and the engine stalling. Also, the power steering could fail.

Dealers will replace the pulley with an improved part when the recall begins in mid-February.

Owners may contract Suzuki about Recall No. SM at 1-887-697-8985 or at www.suzukiauto.com.

Suzuki Recalls QuadSport ATVs


Suzuki is recalling about 1,355 QuadSport all terrain vehicles. The flame arrester screen can become detached from its mounting ring, preventing the throttle valve from returning to the idle position when the throttle lever is released and causing the rider to lose control of the ATV. This poses a serious hazard of injury or death.

American Suzuki has received two reports of flame arrester screens detaching from the mounting ring. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves all Suzuki 2009 model year LT-Z400K9 (QuadSport Z400) and LT-Z400ZK9 (QuadSport Z400 Special Edition) ATVs. "QuadSport Z400" or "QuadSport Z400Z" is written on the sides and left front fender of the ATV. "Suzuki" is written on the sides of the ATV.

The ATVs, made in Japan, were sold at Suzuki ATV dealers nationwide from September 2008 through June 2010 for between $6,500 and $6,700.

Consumers should stop using these vehicles immediately and contact a local Suzuki ATV dealer to schedule an appointment for a free repair. Consumers with recalled ATVs are being sent a notice directly from Suzuki.

For more information, consumers can contact Suzuki at (800) 444-5077 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's website at www.suzukicycles.com.

Suzuki Recalls GSX Motorcycles

GSX motorcycles recalled by Suzuki.

February 2, 2009
Suzuki is recalling about 26,000 of its GSX-R1000 motorcycles from the 2005-2006 model years.

Cracking or breakage of the motorcycle frame can occur in certain extreme situations. Repeated hard landings from hazardous maneuvers -- such as extended wheelies or other stunts -- may generate sufficient stress to cause the problem, the company said.

Dealers will inspect the frame for cracks. If cracks are found, the frame will be replaced. If no cracks are found, a frame reinforcement brace will be attached.

The campaign began on January 21.

Owners may contact Suzuki at 1-714-572-1490.

Consumers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153) or at www.safercar.gov.
