Recall for Vee2

Has anyone heard anything about a January 18th recall for the wires chaffing under the tank and the connecters that are not waterproofed? Theres a guy on advrider who said dealer refused to sell a v strom as a recall is about to be issued. My dealer didn't mention a recall and I got my new v strom with no issues.

Funny that a chain/sprocket change should take 2 hours at a shop. My buddy and I changed the same things in a lot less time in his garage.
Well, they ain't gonna charge you so what the heck?

There is a recall in Australia that has been noted here. The bikes will have the same issues worldwide.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at

Very interesting! I guess I'll be speaking to my local dealer.

Well, I just pulled the trigger on a new 2014 Red V2 for $7999 out the door. They cannot release the bike until the wiring recall is completed and said it would be about a month because they have no complete information/parts/etc from Suzuki on it yet. The rear rack was already replaced for the paint problem. No big deal waiting since it's winter now.

With regard to the connectors, I wonder whether they will replace a portion of the harness, repin and replace the connectors or simply protect them similar to how many have done thus far with rubber inner tube, etc?

I think it is a smart move on their part to call 'em in. It is an almost nil material cost repair, other than rear rack and TBH pretty minor teething troubles.
Mine was the first bike I am aware of to have the under tank chaffing and my suzuki dealer sorted it out quite quickly. I made a point of posting here and on the UK forum and also sent Suzuki NZ an email to thank them etc. the front loom plug is as yet unprotected and it has been in some horrendous conditions in it's 25,000km life so far. I will get them to sort if poss.
Good thread Midwinter!

No problem. I was bummed out to find that they have this issue. I am new to v stroms and just picked up a left over 2014.

I hope the recall comes soon so it will save me completing the fix myself.
