Stator Problem recall?

I don't know if this is common knowledge or has been posted previously but I just saw a post on Facebook that said the following:

"ATTENTION ALL V-Storm Owners: My local dealership called me yesterday and said that a system wide service recall has been issued for premature stator burnout. Contact your local dealership for info. Parts have not yet been released, but are expected to soon. I replaced my stator 2 months ago.. the local shop is working with Suzuki to reimburse me."

It was on a DL650 group but don't know if it applies to other Stroms as well.

If someone has more detail you might want to post it here.

..Tom

(Mods if it ends up only being for DL650 please move to appropriate forum.)

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


This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)
SMIDSY detailed report.

There's a recall listed for the rectifier but I couldn't find anything for the stator.

The DL650 isn't listed, just the 1000. Personally.....Suzuki should do the right thing and replace all DL650 shunt R/R with a new series unit, but we know that won't happen.

Interestingly DL1000 2008-2010 and 2012 are listed but 2011 is not. Different supplier?

The DL1000 was not imported in 2011.

I think 2009 was the last year the DL1000 was available in Europe due to emissions regulations. It was not available in the US in 2010 due to overstock and the economy. It wasn't available in the US again until 2012, its last year of availability anywhere AFAIK until the Vee2 came out.

I just got back from my dealer. Coincidentally, they had all of their new Strom 650's tagged as "sold." When I asked them about it, they weren't actually sold, but on a sales hold due to the stator recall. My 16' is affected as well. They didn't know much yet other than the recall is related to the stator. Said I should be receiving a letter from Suzuki soon. Oh well, probably just a bad production run of stators..

I start wondering if series RR upgrade was too rushed on my account.
