32101-17G12 is shown in the parts fiches as replacing the 32101-17G11 in 2012-2016 DL650s and 32101-17G10 in 2007-2011 DL650s.

32101-17G13 is the stator used for the recall though.
chicago and cyclopathic like this.

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
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

So what would recall entitle to? Oil change as well?

Stator Problem recall?

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..


Curious...I have a 2015 650 and find nothing on the US Suzuki website about ANY recall for my VIN. I was just at the dealer last week having the first service done and they didn't say anything either.

I know on the tappet recall the dealers got their letter months ahead of any general or customer notifications including the VIN being loaded on the recall web site. These things kind of roll slowly geographically and from older to newer years. The US tends to be later on the recalls. Suzuki has to deal with making the parts available. I bet an urgent safety recall would be different.

My experience on the recall on my 2015 DL1000 confirms what you are saying. When the recall was first announced I searched by vin and mine wasn't affected. It was just 2014 models at first. A few weeks later my vin showed up.

Interesting - I will now hold off on my regulator changeover.
I wonder if it's just a beefier stator or does it also involve a regulator change as well...

If this is just the same ole crap going back in, I most certainly won't be doing this. I wish somehow a Suzuki Rep could explain exactly what this is and "why", that would sure make a lot of sense.

Update on my end. My VIN popped at the dealer as a bike with the "stator" recall. However the VIN does not have any recall status on the Suzuki website. I'm going to keep riding with the assumption that if it was serious, I would have been notified by now, or at least it would show up on the Suzuki website. If my bike catches on fire at speed, I'll be sure to notify the group

I wonder how up to date the votes are on a stator problem. It appears to not be an issue in some like the 2014-2016 DL1000?
