Defect Summary
American Suzuki (Suzuki) is conducting a safety improvement campaign involving 26,082 model year 2005-2006 GSX-R1000 motorcycles. Cracking or breakage of the motorcycle frame can occur in certain extreme situations where unusually high stress is placed on the frame. Repeated hard landings from hazardous maneuvers such as extreme or extended wheelies or other stunts may generate sufficient stress to cause this problem.
Consequence Summary
If the frame becomes broken during extreme use, a crash could occur.
Corrective Summary
Dealers will inspect the frame for cracks. If no cracks are found, a frame reinforcement brace will be attached to the frame using bolts and epoxy adhesive. Should cracks be found during the inspection, the frame will be replaced with a new frame that has the reinforcement brace installed. The campaign began on January 21, 2009. Owners may contact Suzuki at 1-714-572-1490.
