Suzuki Australia is recalling its more than 2000 UK110 scooters over an issue that could cause the horn to fail.
The official recall notice, issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, says the improper plating on the moveable contacts on the horn and starter switch, if continuously used, can allow dust or water to enter the switch block.
This could lead to corrosion on the contact surface of the terminals and cause the horn to stop operating correctly.
“The unit may not start, increasing the risk of an accident or injury to the rider and other road users,” it says.
Consumers will be contacted by Suzuki Australia in writing. Consumers with affected Scooters should contact their nearest authorised Suzuki dealer service department to arrange to have the recall carried out.

Vehicle identification umbers of the affected 2014-19 scooters are from MH8DE111300100004 to MH8DE111300102403
Even though manufacturers and importers usually contact owners when a recall is issued, the bike may have been sold privately to a rider unknown to the company.
If you believe there is an endemic problem with your bike that should be recalled, contact the ACCC on 1300 302 502.
