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.

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.

February 10, 2012


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


Vehicle Make / Model: Model Year(s):

NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 12V038000 NHTSA Action Number: N/A

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:
