2012 recall uk

just got a letter this morning from suzuki gb saying my bike needs an "urgent safety recall" [ front brake light switch ] ....so if its urgent why has it taken so long for them to get round to sorting it out in the UK when the recall in the USA has been going on for months now... could it be the fear of getting sued in the states and our lives dont matter as much here ...

Yeah, I just got my recall letter. It is funny how we get it so much later than the US lol.

Well it's evidently not portrayed as an important safety recall by Suzuki Wholesale in New Zealand. I received the same letter about 4 weeks ago, explaining that the brake lever could cause a failure in the brake light and not the front brake itself.

I rang the dealer to log the recall, 3 weeks and 1800km ago. They're still waiting for the replacement parts.......
