Suzuki Recalls 8,511 GSX 1300R's

Recall From: American Suzuki Motor Corporation

Models: Suzuki GSX1300R Years: 1999-2000

Number Involved: 8,511

Dates of Manufacture: January 1999 - August 2000

Defect: On certain motorcycles, the spring in the cam chain tension adjuster can break. Excessive slack will then develop in the cam chain, allowing the chain to jump to the wrong position on the cam shaft sprockets. Severe engine damage could occur, causing sudden engine failure.

Remedy: Dealers will replace the cam chain tension adjuster with a new oil-damped ratchet-type cam chain tension adjuster. Dealers will also install a new tension adjuster oil supply hose and a new cam chain guide. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Nov. 3, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Suzuki at 1-714-572-1490.
