Confusion at Suzuki about recall?

I received a notice in the mail from Suzuki notifying me about the recall for the front brake light switch. Included on this recall notice was my DL650's VIN number. When I contacted a local dealer about getting this fixed they tried to order the new switch. Then Suzuki asked the dealer for my VIN number and then said my bike was not part of the recall. ???? Any one else having this experience? Still trying to get it sorted out.

They're calling it an L2.

I bought a 2012 DL 650 about a week before news of the recall started being mentioned. I am getting conflicting information from Suzuki about whether or not my bike is part of the recall.

"Suzuki recalls motorcycles, scooters for brake lights
February 10, 2012


The following is from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration...


Vehicle Make / Model: Model Year(s):
SUZUKI / AN400 2012

SUZUKI / AN650 2012

SUZUKI / DL650 2012

Manufacturer: AMERICAN SUZUKI MOTOR CORP. Mfr's Report Date: FEB 02, 2012
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 12V038000 NHTSA Action Number: N/A

Component: EXTERIOR LIGHTING:BRAKE LIGHTS:SWITCH

Summary:
SUZUKI IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2012 AN400, AN650, AND DL650 SCOOTERS AND MOTORCYCLES MANUFACTURED PRIOR TO DECEMBER 17, 2011, BECAUSE THE LEVER-MOUNTED BRAKE LIGHT ACTUATING SWITCH(ES) MAY FAIL.
Consequence:
ON THE AN400 AND AN650 MODELS, FAILURE OF THE SWITCHES WILL PREVENT THE SCOOTERS FROM STARTING. ON ALL OF THE AFFECTED MODELS, FAILURE OF THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH(ES) MAY CAUSE THE BRAKE LIGHTS TO NOT ILLUMINATE WHEN A SCOOTER OR MOTORCYCLE IS BRAKING, THEREBY INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH WITH A TRAILING VEHICLE.
Remedy:
SUZUKI WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND SUZUKI DISTRIBUTORS WILL REPLACE THE BRAKE LIGHT ACTUATING SWITCH, FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR ABOUT FEBRUARY 13, 2011. OWNERS MAY CONTACT SUZUKI AT 1-714-996-7040.
