Suzuki is recalling certain 2008-to-2010 motorcycles due to a problem with their electrical systems. The potential number of units affected is 73,426.
The models were manufactured from July 2007 through September 2009 that are equipped with regulator/rectifier assembles with the following part numbers: 32800-41F11, 32800-15H10, 32800-05H11, 32800-41G10, 32800-15H00, 32800-18H00, 32800-05G10, 32800-10G10, 32800-05H20 or 32800-06G01. The specific models are listed below: Some regulator/rectifier assemblies were produced with insufficient adhesion between the power module (circuit board) and the rectifier case that contains a heat sink to dissipate heat. Due to insufficient adhesion, heat generated on the power module circuit board can cause the circuit board to deform and lift off the case. This condition causes excessive heat on the circuit board and uncontrolled electric current output, which can result in insufficient charging current being provided to the motorcycle battery. This can cause discharge of the battery and can lead to engine stalling and/or a no-start condition.
Suzuki will notify owners, and dealers will replace the regulator/rectifier with an improved part for free.
