Suzuki recalls selected GSX-R models built between 2004 and 2013.
Every Suzuki GSX-R including the 600, 750 and 1000cc variants built since 2004 has been officially recalled for modifications to the front brake master cylinder. Suzuki in most countries has taken the decision to recall an as-yet-unknown number of bikes following a small number of reports of a ‘spongy’ front brake feel but so far there have been no reported incidences of failure in most countries. All owners should be notified by letter and the work should be carried out for free by authorised Suzuki dealers.
The recall affects every Suzuki GSX-R600, GSX-R750 and GSX-R1000 built since the 2004 K4 model year through to the latest 2013 models. The issue has been 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
