Suzuki GSX-R1000s ‘recalled’ for extra frame bracing

Published: 04 February 2009

Owners of 2005/2006 Suzuki GSX-R1000s can to hear from Suzuki soon, following reports of frames cracking around the headstock.

VOSA hasn’t deemed the incidents - which occurred following ‘extreme situations’ including heavily-landed wheelies - worthy of a full recall, but Suzuki aims to fit every bike of the period with extra bracing.

All owners, including those buyers of used machines, will be entitled to a free inspection and same-day fitment of a brace. The brace weighs ‘less than a kilo’ according to Suzuki and fits behind and beneath the headstock.
