NHTSA Campaign ID Component Manufacturer Recall Date Units Potentially Affected
08V249000 Electrical System: Ignition: Switch American Suzuki Motor Corp. 06/02/2008 9109
Defect Summary
American Suzuki is recalling 9,109 model year 2008 GSX1300R motorcycles. Improper routing of the ignition switch wiring harness can cause a bent portion of the wiring harness to flex rather than slide when the handlebar is moved from right to left or left to right. Repeated side-to-side movement of the handlebar, and flexing of the bent portion wiring harness, can eventually cause the ignition switch lead wires to become cut or broken.
Consequence Summary
This can result in intermittent or complete loss of electrical power, which can result in loss of lighting and/or stalling of the engine, increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary
Dealers will inspect the ignition switch lead wire routing. If the lead wire harness is incorrectly routed, dealers will replace the lower portion ignition switch (which contains the ignition switch lead wires) and make sure that the wiring harness is properly routed. The recall is expected to begin on or about June 10, 2008. Owners may contact American Suzuki at 1-800-255-2550.
