All new or Used 2004* thru 2013 GSXR models
Suzuki Motor Corporation has instituted a safety recall campaign to replace the front brake master cylinder. The brake
piston inside the front brake master cylinder of some motorcycles may not have received adequate surface treatment to
prevent corrosion. Corrosion of the brake piston generates gas, which may not be adequately purged from the master
cylinder due to the side position location of the reservoir return port. To ensure customer safety and satisfaction, dealers
will replace the front brake master cylinder and brake fluid.
Technical Service Bulletin:
Servicing information regarding this safety recall will be available in a Technical Service Bulletin the week of
October 28, 2013.
Dealers will be able to order the necessary parts to perform this recall campaign beginning approximately the week of
November 4, 2013. Adequate supplies of parts will be available at that time to ensure your ability to service all your
affected units. Your dealership may immediately resume retail sales once the recall campaign is completed.
[QUOTE=senator8]Haha! You're more than 1%. My bike ran perfectly all year. All I did was oil changes and thumbed the starter. While my competitors had bikes and carbs in pieces at the track I was enjoying a coffee and saying "thanks Chris"
Great info Chris thanks!!!
Im probably shit outta luck with my 05 though...there is NO way in hell Im leaving that bike at ANY dealer...I can just see the 20something service tech's eyes light up when a turbo 1000 comes in rolling thru the door for a MC change
I've asked my dealer with previous recalls if they will give me the part so I can do the install yself and I got "the look" and a firm NO! in reply.
huh, no wonder everybody always said suzuki's master cylinders were weakest link of braking system.
Exactly. Ive chalked up the MC on my K5 as to simply needing a rebuild because it is old&constantly spongy....BUT,the master on my L3 is the same. It came from the dealer spongy,I bled em 2x in 400mi and its right back to being spongy. Suzuki can do better
I just called my dealer and they didn't know anything about it, said that they looked up my VIN and there are no current recalls for it. Will there be a time that this information is given to the dealer? Perhaps its not dispersed to everyone at once?
Look guys it's legit, I have never lied to you. More information will be available soon, week of the 28th, with parts Nov 4th.
Your dealers may not know about it yet, some just are not in the loop, slow down, breathe, it's not like your brakes are going to suddenly fail tonight.
