2013 Suzuki SVF650

Suzuki Motor of America, Inc has recalled certain model year 2013-2014 SFV650 and 2012-2014 DL650A V-Strom motorcycles, and 2013-2014 AN650A Burgman scooters due to engine issues.

Suzuki says the motorcycle may experience engine stalling due to excessive tappet and camshaft wear. According to Suzuki, contamination from component production and storage, along with manufacturing variations may result in the tappet and camshaft wearing improperly, may result in a stalling scenario that puts the user at a greater risk for an accident. In total, Suzuki has said that the recall impacts 6,214 units.

Suzuki is notifying owners and dealers regarding the issue. Dealers will inspect the tappet clearance and have been instructed to replace the tappets and camshafts as necessary.

All bikes with less than 2500 miles will have their tappets and camshafts replaced because wear may not be evident yet. Of course, these services will be performed free of charge to the impacted owners. Expected to begin on February 1, 2016, owners may contact Suzuki customer service at 1-714-996-7040. Suzuki’s number for this recall is 2A50, 2A51, and 2A52.
