The frame recall should still be active and I think the replacement frames were warranted for several years. Did you get a new frame when the brace was installed or was the brace installed on your original frame?Is the recall still active. My 05 has the brace and my frame still broke in half what can I do about this
I had a k5 I used and abused wheelied came down hard a few times and crashed twice was still good I did have the recall done as it was free bike felt no different at all there was also a recall for the front brake but that was after I sold mine so dont know what the problem was there but mine was fine. Wicked bike best I've had also the best bike I've ridden. ?OK Sid,
I read your title,
and thought that the actual frame brace- had a recall!!
They never replaced the frames on the recall unless they were cracked which at crescent suzuki here in the uk said none they had done were cracked they just put the brace on all of theres. ? it will be ok u just gotta have faith ?The frame recall should still be active and I think the replacement frames were warranted for several years.

Try your VIN in the Suzuki recall page and see what it says about your bike.
Wasnt it down to weight shaving they took a bit too much material away also that pic the bike could have hit a wall at 100mph any bike would snap in half if you smack it hard enough BOOM!
I have a 05 GSXR 1000 that had a new frame installed in around 2007.OG has turboed and beaten the living shit out of several of his, wheelie-ing and slamming down hard at 180+ mph as his boring, daily routine. Never had an issue.
Yesterday, a forum noob @LiferSBKRider posted the blurb copied-in below in another thread:
My question is addressed to anyone who has worked in Suzuki dealerships, who has had actual eyes/hands-on experience with this recall. Simply put, has anyone ever actually SEEN a busted or cracked frame that was related to this recall?
If they rode into a brick wall or rear-ended a car, that doesn't count. I'm talking purely from 'regular' riding, rough roads, coming-down hard from wheelies etc.....
@LiferSBKRider , did you ever find any cracks or breaks?
