Haven't had that issue, but good luck with Suzuki. I had an issue with the rear axle/nut galling on my 650 at 10 months. Apparently, a not uncommon thing on the bike. I had to use a long pipe for leverage and all the strength I had to get that nut off. Of course the threads were totally destroyed, but the only other alternative was to cut it off. Took the axle and nut to my dealer, said they never heard of it, but sent it in to suzuki. Suzuki said "user error", that I stripped it. Needless to say I was f'n pissed.
