Suzuki GSX learners recalled on frame issue

Suzuki Australia has recalled their learner-approved GSX-R125 sports bike and GSX-S125 naked bike (pictured above) over the possibility of frame breakages.

The official notice was issued through the Australian Consumer and Competition Commission.

“Due to improper paint application, the torque specification of the front engine bolts may cause the paint to wear down with heat and vibration from the engine,” the notice says.

“This could cause the bolts to loosen.

“The engine mounting bolts may break, which could cause the frame to break. This may pose an accident hazard to the rider and other road users.”

Owners of the 242 bikes affected have been advised to contact their nearest Suzuki Dealership to have their motorcycle inspected.

For any concerns, contact Suzuki Customer Care line on 03 9931 5500.

Affected bike Vehicle Identifications Numbers (VINs) are listed at the end of this article.

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS ON RECALLS

Even though manufacturers and importers contact owners when a recall is issued, the bike may have been sold privately to a rider unknown to the company.

Therefore, Motorbike Writer publishes all motorcycle recalls as a service to all riders.

In Australia, recall notices are issued by the manufacturer and the Department of Infrastructure through a voluntary industry code under the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.

While any recall is not good news for the manufacturer, it shows that they are largely diligent in fixing problems.

If you believe there is an endemic problem with your bike that should be recalled, contact the ACCC on 1300 302 502.
