recall-1

Not many motorcycle safety recalls this month.  But if you own a late model Suzuki you might be eligible for $100 (US only sorry).

 

Manufacturer: Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A.

SUMMARY: Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. (Kawasaki) is recalling certain 2018 Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX SE (ZXT02BJ) motorcycles. The pin for the center stand spring may have been improperly welded, and, as a result, the pin may shift or fall off resulting in the spring detaching and the center stand dropping to the ground unexpectedly and dragging while riding.

CONSEQUENCE: The dragging center stand can cause a loss of control, increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY: Kawasaki will notify owners, and dealers will replace the left center stand bracket, free of charge. Owners may contact Kawasaki customer service at 1-866-802-9381. Kawasaki’s number for this recall is MC18-05.

Manufacturer: Fuel Helmets

SUMMARY: Fuel Helmets (Fuel) is recalling certain Open Face helmets, part number SH-OF0016 in size Large and SH-OF0017 in size Extra Large manufactured June 2015-April 2017. The affected helmets may not adequately protect the wearer’s head in the event of an impact, and an object may penetrate the helmet. As such, these helmets fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 218, “Motorcycle Helmets.”

CONSEQUENCE: A helmet that fails to meet the safety requirements can increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

REMEDY: Fuel Helmets will notify owners and replace the helmet, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Fuel customer service at 1-855-355-3835.

Manufacturer: Suzuki  

This is an older recall but I guess Suzuki has not gotten enough response to the recall.

SUZUKI WANTS TO PAY YOU $100 (US ONLY SORRY) TO GET YOUR RECALL COMPLETED!

If you own a 2004-2013 GSX-R600/750 or a 2005-2013 GSX-R1000 you may have a faulty front brake master cylinder.

Get the recall completed between September 1st, 2018 and November 30th, 2018 and Suzuki will pay you $100 (but only in the US).

You have to register your motorcycle at this website and when the recall is verified by the dealership that performs the work, you will get a $100 prepaid VISA card.

Sweat deal IMHO.
