My dealer told me about this by sending me a notice by mail, they ordered the part, and I have an appointment this Saturday to replace the IMU. They will do it while I wait. I live in Japan and the customer service here is second to none!

Can you post a copy of the notice for reference? None of my dealers know anything about this and are playing dumb. Is it listing a part number for the new IMU?

OK Suzuki is issuing recall on the GSXR1000 IMU sensor replace them all. I called Suzuki in California and they did confirm it and said the campaign number is 2891. They said to have the dealer run the vin number in the Suzuki Data base and it will come up with a red flag. So I called my dealer to let them know and said they already ran it and seen the recall for the IMU sensor and already had it on order.

This IMU recall could affect the way the traction control working? Because the stock TC is not great on the track....

I could post it but it's in Japanese. Looks like you got the info now from your dealer. In Japan, they are not calling it a recall, just an update service, whatever that means.

I assume the part carries a different part number? I hope and are not replacing the IMU with the same part number only to go bad again.

Im hoping they did change the software because I will not spend 800 every time it goes bad.

If they did reprogram the IMU then it should have a different part number. If the part number is the same I’m gonna question them about it.

if you replaced it Suzuki will do it again and reimburse you for the other one if you were out of pocket

nah mine was all done under warranty, they were trying to track down the issues with the quickshifter and replaced everything that could effect it.
i just had to wait for about 3-4 weeks for an IMU.
