Suzuki Recalls More Than 23,000 Motorcycles for Drive Chain Problem
Suzuki is recalling certain model year motorcycles due to a problem with the drive chain.
In the event that a gear is missed while upshifting the affected 2011-2014 GSX-R750 and 2009-2014 GSX-R1000 motorcycles, the strain applied to the drive chain after the next shift may cause the rear axle to move, damaging the left-side drive chain adjuster.
If the drive chain adjuster gets damaged, the drive chain may come off, removing power to the rear wheel, and increasing the risk of a crash.
More than 23,000 motorcycles are affected by the recall.
Suzuki will notify owners of the problem, and dealers will replace the left-side chain adjuster with an improved part.
Owners may contact Suzuki customer service at 1-714-572-1490. Suzuki's numbers for this recall are 2A40, 2A41, 2A42 and 2A43.
