Suzuki Recall 07V362000

NHTSA Campaign ID Component Manufacturer Recall Date Units Potentially Affected
07V362000 Vehicle Speed Control American Suzuki Motor CORP. 08/13/2007 13398
Defect Summary
On certain motorcycles, each time the ignition switch is turned off, the engine control module (ECM) pre-sets the position of the idle speed control (ISC) valve for subsequent engine starting by opening the valve completely and then closing it to a start-up position.
Consequence Summary
Due to improper shape of the internal mechanism that moves the ISC valve, the valve may remain in the open position instead of moving to the correct start-up position. This can result in no-load engine idle speeds as high as 5000 rpm the next time the engine is started. If the rider chooses to operate the motorcycle in this condition, the rider may have difficulty operating the motorcycle, which could result in a crash.
Corrective Summary
Dealers will replace the ISC valve with an improved part, and will also replace the ECM. The recall is expected to begin on or about August 21, 2007. Owners may contact Suzuki at 1-714-572-1490.
