Suzuki’s flagship GSX-R models subject to recall

Suzuki GB has announced a recall on selected GSX-R models built between 2004 and 2013.

Instigated due to a potential issue that can affect the Front Brake Master Cylinder where a ‘spongy feel’ may develop over time the recall affects GSX-R600, 750 and 1000 models as listed below.

GSX-R600 – K4, K5,  K6, K7, K8, K9, L0, L1, L2 and L3 models

GSX-R750 – K4, K5, K6, K7, K8, K9, L0 , L1, L2, and L3 models

GSX-R1000 – K5, K6, K7, K8, K9, L0, L1, L2 and L3 models

Suzuki GB’s Denis Houston commented, “Investigations into reports of the front brake lever developing a ‘spongy’ feeling over time have revealed the cause to be moisture naturally absorbed by the brake fluid, affecting the return spring inside the master cylinder. As the braking system is safety critical and there are no external indications that corrosion of the spring has begun the brake master cylinder assembly is to be replaced free of charge.”

Customers with officially imported road registered machines will be notified via post using DVLA sourced data and advised to contact their local authorised Suzuki dealer to arrange fitment of the replacement components free of charge. Suzuki will also use organisations such as the ACU to reach owners of race and track day bikes.
