2012 DL650 brake switch recall

I just got the stator recall letter too.
But when I searched the Transport Canada recall site it didn't show the stator recall but listed a separate brake switch recall (see below) that I hadn't heard of before.


Recall Details
Transport Canada Recall # 2012039
Recall Date 2012/02/03
Notification Type Safety Mfr
System Lights And Instruments
Manufacturer Recall Number 91
Units Affected The number of vehicles or components affected by the recall. 185
Category Motorcycle
Recall Details
On certain motorcycles, the brake light actuating switch (operated by the handlebar-mounted brake lever) may fail. Failure of the brake lamps to illuminate when the brakes are applied may result in the following road users being unaware of the riderís intentions, increasing the risk of a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will replace the front brake switch with an updated version.
Make Model Model Year(s) Affected
SUZUKI V-STROM 650 (DL650A) 2012

The front brake light switch recall happened as the 2012 650 first came out. The original batch of switches had the problem.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. 2012 DL650A didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014+ DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012+ DL650s

I got a letter for my 2012 DL650 that I no longer own. The new owner probably hasn't told Suzuki (since he is parting it out anyway.)

2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles,
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold.
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 70,000+ km, 43,500+ miles.

Received my letter a few days back. I had also entered vin into comments section of Suzuki Canada's website asking about the recall a few weeks back and they quickly replied that my bike was affected. (Can't do a vin search in Canada as in the US), so any Canadians who may still be wondering (or those who have not updated info with Suzuki), try that route. I believe most all dl650's from 2012-2016 are affected though.

Got my notice too. It's a good thing, I suppose, as there was lots of speculation out there that the stators were bad.

As far as I know, the stator seems to be the only reliability complaint about the bike - is that right, or am I out of the loop?

Stators and headlight wiring were the big complaints for failures. Headlight relays will handle that.

It actually isn't parted out... I sold off or used for myself most of the extra bits (seats, madstad, center stand, etc), but it is still a running and functional DL650 that is just biding its time in my shed... oh, I do use the wheels off of it fairly often as I swap between knobbies and PR4s. I'm actually still running the front Metzeler tire that came along with it... slowly, over the years, the bike will be continued to be used. It has not reached the end yet, I have projects in mind.

Perhaps I should bring it in to get the stator changed... I'll consider that in the spring when I can trailer it to the shop.
