Suzuki Recalls 73,000 Motorcycles

American Suzuki has issued a recall of more than 73,000 motorcycles from 2008-2010 due to an electrical issue.

According to a company statement, the recall affects 12 different models built between July 2007 and September 2009 and sold in the 2008-2010 model years. The regulator and rectifier assemblies on certain models may lack sufficient adhesion between the power module and the rectifier case, company officials explained.

As the power module heats up, the circuit board may deform, causing the module to lift off of the case. The problem can cause excessive heat and uncontrolled electric current output, affecting the dischargeĀ  of the battery and potentially leading the engine to stall or fail to start.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, American Suzuki first received a report of rectifier failure in July 2008.
