Suzuki Motor Corporation has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 2008 model year GSX1300RK8 motorcycles. Suzuki Motor Corporation is conducting a voluntary Safety Recall Campaign. According to our records, you are the owner of one of these motorcycles.
Suzuki Motor Corporation has determined that certain GSX1300RK8 motorcycles may have the ignition switch lead wire improperly routed. Handlebar movement can result in abnormal flexing and damage to the ignition switch lead wire. Damage to the ignition switch lead wire can result in intermittent or complete loss of electrical power, which can result in loss of lighting and/or stalling of the engine. This could result in a crash.
The repair consists of thoroughly inspecting the ignition switch lead wire routing. If the ignition switch lead wire is not routed or clamped properly, Suzuki will replace the ignition switch/lead wire assembly. Your original lock set will be installed onto the new ignition switch/lead wire assembly so that your original key will operate the ignition switch. Repair time is approximately 1.3 hours and will be performed at no cost to you for parts or labor.
If your motorcycle is included in the recall and you have paid for the repair or replacement of the ignition switch, you may be eligible for full or partial reimbursement.
