2018 Suzuki DR-Z400S and SM Recall (Brake Light Issues)

2018 Suzuki DR-Z400S Recall

Suzuki has recalled 191 of its 2018 DR-Z400S and DR-Z400SM over rear brake light issues.

Suzuki says if the brake lights do not illuminate, it can increase the risk of a crash.

During assembly, Suzuki says the resin that fills the rear brake stop lamp switch may have adhered to the internal contacts, which can prevent the brake lamp from illuminating.
