Buying a 2012 - stator recall not done

I'm looking at picking up a 2012 and the seller said the stator recall hasn't been done, but he "has the letter".

I haven't ever dealt with a recall before -- can I expect any problems in getting this done by a dealer, or is there some 'original owner only' stipulation I need to know about?

If it's a good day to wash the bike, it's a better day to ride the bike.

Nope. Recall is tied to the vin, not the owner.

Don't let that stop you from getting the bike. The recall is for any owner that presents the bike ( assuming it has not be previously done ). I have been waiting for months for parts to arrive, as have many others. Probably a LOT of these won't get done because of that. On the other hand, I have 24,000 miles and the original stator is still just fine.

call the dealer, if parts not in have them order in parts and book a time in.

you can contact Suzuki with the Vin# have them transfer the info to you. They can confirm what recalls have been done and if future ones do you'll be contacted.

I was in the same boat as you 2 months ago... all done, all good easy peasy

Yea me too.

My local dealer has my recall letter. I'm thinking that that opens Suzuki to liability if my bike breaks down somewhere.

Bummer is I have the 857 regulator waiting to install.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Cor 13:13

I wouldn't wait for the recall to put SH-847 put it when it is convenient for you. I had mine put back in Oct? and dealer had no problem with stator replacement, since I used Triumph link and the plugs were not affected.

The only reason to wait if you have the dealer do RR installation for you.

I don't have the Triumph harness. I bought the kit from Roadster, have to solder/crimp the wires from the stator.

The only thing I could suggest is cutting and soldering both sides off OEM RR. I gave it a thought initially, but then decided to keep OEM plugs.

Just in case if it fails on the road and taken to dealer or needs to be fixed in the middle of the joney it is still 100% compatible with OEM parts.

I had the recall completed just a month or so ago. Dealer said he'd have to order the stator which would take a week or so. Then the Service Mgr called to say he had a new stator in stock and the work was complete in 3 days. I was a little taken aback. He showed the original stator to me, and I asked how he knew if the new in stock stator output was good, did he check output? He said no, I just did what Suzuki directed. So, I'm watching for signs of low output while riding. I was surprised and thought it odd, but so far everything appears to be working fine.
