Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. (Suzuki) is recalling certain model year 2014 DL1000 motorcycles manufactured Jan. 17, 2014, to June 5, 2014, and 2015 DL1000 motorcycles manufactured Nov. 5, 2014, to Feb. 6, 2015. The ignition switch terminals of the affected vehicles may corrode if they come into contact with liquid such as salt water. As a result, the motorcycle’s electrical power may be disconnected or the switch may be bypassed, preventing the engine from being shut off with the ignition key. If electrical power is lost, the engine would stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
Suzuki will notify owners, and dealers will install a cover for the ignition switch connector, and any corroded ignition lead wire and wire harnesses will be replaced. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall was expected to begin Jan. 22, 2016. Owners may contact Suzuki customer service at 714-996-7040. Suzuki’s number for this recall is 2A53. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 (TTY 800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
