The regulator / rectifier assemblies with the following Suzuki part numbers are being recalled on the motorcycles mentioned: 32800-41F11, 32800-15H10, 32800-05H11, 32800-41G10, 32800-15H00, 32800-18H00, 32800-05G10, 32800-10G10, 32800-05H20, OR 32800-06G01.

Suzuki says 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 the 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 the discharge of the Suzuki motorcycle’s battery, which can lead to stalling or a non-start condition; if the motorcycle’s engine stalls, it could increase the risk of a crash.

Suzuki will notify owners and Suzuki distributors will replace the effected part with an improved part free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on March 2. Ownwers may contact Suzuki at 1-714-996-7040.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or visit
