suzukiword_logo

Suzuki  has recalled several models over an engine failure.

Suzuki SFV650 Gladius has engine and tank issues

They are the SFV650, DL650, GSR750, GSX650, GSF650, GSX1250, GSF1250 and AN650 motorcycles with various VIN numbers. You will have to check with your dealer to find out if your bike is affected.

The defect notice says the tappet hardening surface may wear due to contamination causing tappet and camshaft wear.

“In the worst case scenario this may cause the engine to stop running.”

Suzuki  has also recalled the DL1000 V-Strom over improper routing of the wiring loom which may cause “scuffing” and lead to some connectors becoming corroded.
