Did Suzuki honor your Service Bulletin 35?

Those of you that own a '04, '05 and '06 1K's, did Suzuki honor the Service Bulletin 35 ECU replacement after your warranty expired? I'm the second owner of my 1K w/ 2700 miles on it and I called Suzuki regarding this and they told me since it was out of warranty, the Service Bulletin 35 didn't apply! I thought recall's had nothing to do with warranties? My 1K is a '05.

Safety recalls do not have anything to do with warranty. However, TSBs are typically only implemented if there is a problem with the bike at which time it is at the owner's expense unless under warranty. So you will have to pay for it to be done since you are out of warranty.

That would be a big NO.

Have an 05 Vee that has had the ECU upgrade done under warranty with the previous owner.
Was done at just under 10,000 km in the first year.
The previous owner said the engine quit in a left turn against traffic, part way through an intersection, not fun.
I would think a power commander would be the better way to go as the ECU is pricey if not covered by warranty.
If you decide to go with the new ECU with the upgraded mapping it does cure the problem as mine has 70,000 km with no fueling issues. Bernie 05-DL-1K

Awww, ceeeeerapp! I do have a PCIII on it now but it would have been nice to have the corrected ECU. After doing a TBS, installing a PCIII and Gipro/TRE a while back, that pretty much took care of the 3k - 4K sputter. Also changing the drive sprockets from 17/41 to 16/43 helped ridability. Also installed speedo healer after changing sprockets.

Feels like a brand new scoot for not a whole lot of money.

The service bulletin doesn't say it has to be under warranty. It just says they'll replace it free of charge.
